Default Prebuilt MS?

Does anyone still build these? I asked "Brainiack" (sorry for misspelling) and he has not replied and i could see he removed his ad. Does anyone still prebuild these or do i have to order a pnp?

You can get them to assemble you an MSI and you do your own wiring. Or you can buy a MSPNP from them.

Does anyone know which MS from the DIY website is made for the miata?

Also, i found these on ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/MEGAS...mZ230259896374
I was wondering if these are pretty much the same as the prebuilt ones that were sold here on the forums? Is anyone running this exact same set and have some time to answer a few questions?

uhh dude that is a DIY autotune built MS1 basic.
The only MS built just for the miata is the PNP wich is made for newbs who do not trust there soldering skills or there wiriring expertise.
The PNP costs a few hundred dollars more but
It plugs in nice and easy
has a nicer packaging for the unit itself i think.
Has a better chance of being 1000% right for your car.
has alot less stuff for you to mess up.
Before you blindly give your money for something you know nothing about i suggest you do abit of reading on exactly what MS is and how it is used by us and the rest of the tuner world to make cheap reliable hp. This might take several hours, but it is better than Chad, Braineack, or i Regurgitating all the info for the 1 millionth time. /once you are familiar with the concept and the unit itself then post here with specific questions and we will be able to help you alot more.

I have read all about MS and im getting close to putting all the parts together for my turbo build. I am not looking to build a MS but i have no problem with wiring it piggyback style to the ECU. Im trying to find a prebuilt unit just like "Braineack" used to offer then i will go on searching on how to use it.

We can set up non-PNP Megasquirts with various mods by special order - send us an email with what you've got in mind and I can get you a price quote.
