Yes the MS2 kit you asked about will work, but there is a ton of things that make it much harder to build then going with the DIYPNP. With the questions you have asked I know you have not looked at the MegaManual yet. Being able to solder is only a small part of building the MS. Knowing what circuits are needed for the miata is a big part. Do you know what steps to not due because they are not needed?
so what do you recomend that i buy? the DIY PNP, the MS complete or do i have to buy the MS PNP? i really don't want to spend 800$ on a ECU

Do research and figure out for yourself if you can build the MSII. There are guides, and instructions. But if we just tell you yes you can do it. You probably can't.

I built my own MS3, but I did a lot more research than you have. I think one of my first posts was actually asking about it.

Hey look I found it.

How much more is a MS3 kit over the Ms2, because I'm pretty sure it's less than a diypnp even if you buy a fancy boomslang.

Ms2 sucks peen, I will sell you mine for $400 so I may buy a MS3. You just have to wait till I build my Ms3...

Yes, mine is a diypnp with full sequential fuel and digital wideband i/o, plus obd2...

The ms2 works great, it just doesn't do anything more than exactly what you need for 200whp, or more. I'm bored with it. I want boost by gear/speed, more IO, seq ignition, and a bunch of other ****. Sd logging, USB, **** serial and it's 1960's ******* tech.

If you buy mine you have to wait till I buy and build a MS3 with the money, that's how you know mine works, I need it still. I will be ripping my ECU connector off my stock ECU to make Brian cry

Yes, it would take less than a week. You would need to buy an innovate wideband.

It's pretty easy, you either do or you don't.

If you had half a brain you'd spend about another week or two reading everything you can find about assembling a megasquirt, any of them.

Then you'd buy a MS3.

Because we say you can. He's an *******, just like the rest of us, but he does what he says.
I have personally bought from him before.
I'm a little surprised he is taking the risk of selling to you honestly.

You dont want MS3 because it costs more than $50 and that's about 5 months of allowance for you.

The MS8 is only good for a couple of kilowatts. MS8 That said, it's autotune feature is killer.
