<schill> Yeah, you could wait until I've got EMU goin, and you could buy my 5k mile old unit for half price </schill>

If you're going to fork out for a new MSD, take a good look at a Bipes. The Bipes is dynamic and adjustable, where the MSD is static and fixed. No, there's *nothing* wrong with the MSD; it's working fine for me--and plenty of others, too. But the bipes is better (it's an evolution of the msd sebring), and about the same price if we're looking at new stuff.

Most places dont sell the thing anymore. You could try BEGi as they used to couple it with their very early turbo kits.

I'd seriously hope you'd consider a BIPES instead, as it was originally developed to modify the MSD to have greater adjustability.

I've got one laying around that I could sell today if you wanted it. But for real, I would go bipes or emanage insted. But if you really want one, I do have one that I'd sell.

I'm waiting on another forum member's EMU, so there is no set timeline. If you need quick, jump on sideways' msd or a new bipes. I say new bipes becuase they seem to trade second hand for so close to what a new one costs. My msd will be "officially" up for sale sometime in the next few weeks or so... When it is, I'll take 50% new cost plus shipping and paypal fee, which comes to about $95.
