Default Braineack's vs. PNP

What is the difference? Any features one has that the other doesn't or can Braineack just do it a lot cheaper? Thanks a lot.

For ultimate cheap, do it yourself...
Both are the same other than the case they come in.
You decide what you want.
So, I suppose Scott is building them again? Good to know

Were close enough. If you buy one, I will too. We'll build them together. As I hear, they are not that difficult to put together. Soldering required though.

I can handle that. Do you have any experience or knowledge of how they work because I dont. By the way hows your build going?

You should both ride together in the miata with the top down, blaring U2 ,and holding hands.

Ha! on a serious note, I know a guy who does know a lot about it. He's running one on a buggy with a turbo'd Saturn motor pushing 10 psi. I'll figure it out.

Me too. Same functionality as the PnP at basically half the price. Just the case is different...

there's more than just the case, but it's more or less the same.

Pretty much all the same features, but getting Brain to do one for you is the way to go if you don't want to solder one up yourself.
He will also put the right things in for your setup, so he is your best option really.
