Got one of these bad boys for my bday and was wondering if there was a howto on the ignition mods....all the ones i can find are either for the 3.0 or 2.2

same thing for the most part but you'll be soldering to pads and not holes.
Why the 3.57 board when you could have gotten the 3.0 for less money.

you cant, the whole point of the board is that it uses surface mounted components.
