Default Noob question: is there a difference between Reverent and Braineack MS3s?

Title says it all. Based on basically every piece of discussion on the topic of engine management, I know I want an PNPMS3 built by one of these guys, but are they the same, or is there some reason to go one way or the other? Is there a price difference?

There is a sticky about it...

And Reverants's stuff

PNPMS3 does not exist as a product, but any MS3 that is built for you will be plug and play.

They are not the same. They are similar. Very few megasquirts are "same" when made by different builders.

Both are great, I have used both many times.

Brain assembles DIY autotune.com kits. Reverant has custom circuit boards and custom software. I believe. Both are very plug and play but do have different options. PM each of them for pricing.

Thanks for the info. Is there no discussion of prices or pros/cons of each on this forum?

No, because prices vary, and pro's/con's vary depending on what you have them build for YOU and YOUR needs.

You're looking for some "universal chart" that will just break it all down for you.
There isn't one.

And for a very specific reason: they are not all stamped/assembled/set up in a cookie cutter method. There are MANY different variations and options and differences.

And as any guide/advice/whatever regarding MS, it's outdated the very second it's typed.

And then you have this, based on MS3Pro

Is there any members on here actually running any of those boards though?
