Default Worthwhile Upgrade MS2E to MS3?

Hey guys,

I had to send back my MS2E to Rev to take a look at a few issues. While he has it, do you guys think it's worth moving to MS3 Basic?

I don't really use the super cool "E" functions.

My car is MSM with bolt on's. Would like the car to drive as close to stock as possible, keeping A/C and P/S. For the future, I may upgrade to a churbo (as I don't really want to make LOADS of power, or build the motor really, but as you guys know, stock turbo sucks).

Thanks.

On board data logging was my reasoning for the ms3 over ms2e. It looks like both have knock which was the other reason.

the MS2e should work fine for what you need. Upgrading would be more of a want than a need

V,

You're running a MS3 right? I see you were using E85, but no flex sensor yet? We don't have a lot of E85 around here, but having the option of running both would be nice. I see the flex fuel option for MS2E, but I haven't read of anyone using it.

No flex sensor for me because I'm lazy and we have the stuff everywhere, so unless I take a long trip, I really don't even need it
