Everything is fine. It's just that when I removed the battery and connected it, the car started acting up.

Ditch the mspnp for something better.
Get better injectors
J&S safeguard for knock detection and control.

You mean sensor. You should read up more into the standalone.

Standalone is the MegaSquirt ECU that you control fully (or any other user controlled ecu that replaces the stock ecu functions).

I'm pretty sure the newer megasquirt has its own built in MAP sensor.

Spend time reading on the megasquirt, that will take most of your time.

If you plan to get a Megasquirt, I suggest you get a MS3 setup or else don't get one.

Nothing, nothing at all.

MS3 is just a newer version that has a bit more refinment and toys to play with. Im certain that you dont need them and shouldn't bother with the extra cost and features your not goin to make use of.
