Default MS3 Questions

So I'm considering building myself an MS3 to get away from the PNP. My main question is over idle control.

I noticed on the comparison chart that they both use a PWM 2 wire system. But I've also read that the MS3 has a much better idle control that is closer to the stock system and can handle the variances in load from A/C, temp changes, etc.

Also, does the MS3 have the knock sensor circuitry on board or does it rely on the knocksense unit? How does it compare to a MS1 board with knocksense?

Can someone please explain, or point me in the direction of where I can find how the systems are different?

All MS variants have temperature input to their idle control. MS3 has a better closed loop algorithm, A/C input, and in general uses its extra processing power to control the idle better than MS1.

MS3 does not currently have an onboard knock conditioner.

Does this help?

Thanks Matt, that clears a few things up.
