Default Reasons to go MS3 over DIYPNP?

I like the idea of the DIYPNP. It looks to be simple, easy and quick to build, and to be reliable.

Can you tell me any good reasons (features etc) why one would want to go with an MS3 over a DIYPNP setup with the sequential injection module?

Cheers

Thanks for the thread highjack!

My setup is a track-dedicated non-VVT NB with no power steering or A/C. Plans for huge turbo and E85...

LOL! I didn't even notice the hijack haha

I have a DIYPNP, I believe it will suit your purpose very well, especially since you have no AC, which is my only (minor) issue.

If you're going to run E85 exclusively, then the DIYPNP would be enough if you're on a tight racing budget.

But if your fuel source varies (ie: interstate tracks with dubious E85 supply) then a flex fuel sensor and MS3 will have you covered.

Does the MS3 do sequential without the expander module? (I haven't researched this yet).

Another question, would sequential fueling/ignition be of such importance in a track only vehicle?
I thought the real benefits of it was for emissions and not power?

I just figured it would help idle ID1000s.

The MS2 can do flex fuel as well.

Because its the same question, but different circumstances, how about with:

1.6L, '92, simple turbo running on pump gas (don't have all the parts together, but simple log manifold with T-bird T3 turbo, intercooled, street and track use).

Edit: Basically, nothing wild. Shooting for 250whp at the most, more realistically 220-230.

On a side note about idling, I have the MS3 and like the idea of e85, will the 1000cc injectors work well with it / many people tried this etc...?

You need MSII or MSIII, what you have is MS1

You should be fine with MS1/MSPNP unless you want to do something fancy like sequential fuel or ignition. Right fellas?
