It's a sheep thing. They are always following each other around too.

Great bang-for-your-bucks, incredible learning experience and you even get to wear the t-shirt once you have finished.

Why would you pay more for something when you can get a unit for a fraction of the cost and have all the control you could ever want?
MS is awesome, i too did it for the sheep factor. Sheep like being able to use 550 cc injectors in order to max the efficiency of your turbo out. I wanna go fast. BAAAAAA

This was my primary reason for investigating and building a Megasquirt about 2 years ago for a friend's CRX. I haven't looked away since and have yet to be dissappointed.

Considering the price, features, configuration options, open source, and especially the community that is available regarding this system, how can one go wrong?

Its either MS or "lambo-style-doors" for me. I'm still undecided. Maybe I could do a hinge that opens the hard-top at the b pillar, so it opens horizontally. That would be cooler than ms.

I have been wanting to do it because it is realatively cheap, but I didn't want to be the first one to do it on a miata. Now that several people have done it, I'm more comfortable diving in. I think a lot of people were waiting so that they didn't have to 'do it on their own.'

Jump in the fire, you wont regret it.

I just finished my 4th weekend on track (3 hours driving on track per weekend).

I didnt even need to bring the laptop this time (ok I forgot it at work :( )
