I guess its time for an update or two. Ryan Kaufman and I had a rather hellacious day working on my pile. We rebuilt the MSM calipers, put on the NAPA rotors, Ryan installed the poly bushings in the front, pretty much all of the control arms have been replaced because they were all bent, the read brake pads were changed and now I need to get SS brake lines, a new master cylinder and a few other things. The ball joints were replaced and as we were trying to replace the tie rods, we realized that I was sent the wrong ones that were a mm too thick so now I have to rectify that. Already the car feels loads better driving it this morning.

The fact that the only reason they have a different part number from regular sport calipers is because they are painted silver from the factory and they have better braking due to the decals I stuck on them from ebay should make everyone jelly.

Stone age turbo, turn of the century engine management.

I assume the next mod is a hitch up front for the horses.

Everyone bashing the MS1, why should i upgrade to a ms2 or better if I already have a ms1? I honestly can't even tune the ms1 to its full potential, and i'm still learning every day. My idle is fine, made good power, never really knocked.

Yes I know of the resolution and faster computing of the newer ECUs, but why on my 250whp street car do i need more?

if you got yours to work fine then there really isn't any need for it.

I guess we're getting spoiled with these fancy new ones coming out lately.

I'm sure it will get the job done.

And thats why I settled on it really. Aside from the great price I got on it, it worked great for everyone else when it was all that was available and considering Im gonna be using 550cc injectors in the first place, that should tell you I have zero desire to go past the 300rwhp mark so this ecu will be fine.
