MS-II currently, only because I fried my MS-III board 3 days after running it

The verdict is: it's exactly the same but I need to tune my idle settings...

I'm a shooting star leaping through the sky
Like a tiger defying the laws of gravity
I'm a racing car passing by like Lady Godiva
I'm gonna go go go there's no stopping me

We should get a list going of when people first got their MS running. I know me and you have been running them for 3 years. I am curious who else has been running them for a long period of time.

Kingof1337 was probably one of the first, I think that was late '06, then the bandwagon hit hard in '07. I first got MS running April of '07 and I was late to the party.

I guess I don't feel so bad that mine isn't in yet. Hell, you've been building the damn things for longer than I've had my car.
