You don't technically need, for a basic setup, the extra stuff the v3.0 gives you.

You could easily make a v2.2 board have: ignition, fuel, fan, and launch control.

Anything more, like adding the EBC will require creativity on your part. But most boards don't use half the features of a v3.0 board, like the VR circuit and PWM circuit, especially when using HR code.

Therefore, if you're really looking to save some cash, it will save you a good $48.

You would be $48 poorer. Yes that is a word.

get a DIYPNP unit. You'll need an MS-II to use your stock sensor and the diypnp couldn't be easier.

no time


I'm just playing with brainy. Hell, if he banned me I bet my grades would go up. This forum is too cool though. Where else can you backtalk to Admin and know they won't take it personally and PM you warning points.

Somehow I fucked mines up "taking my time" If you can't crank it out in a few hours don't do it. But if you have skills, carry on.

I can design and print my own circuits, my soldering skills are well formed. I just don't like to rush. i took 3 days to build my MS1 for my old car.

Oh, well that's cool. Another strategy might be to share what you do know. This way people can either acknowledge your awareness or adjust it accordingly. Good luck with your build!
