Here's the skinny.

If you're dumb and got money and want simple, reliable, not have to think, learn, or understand much, get a MSPNP for your car. ~700 bucks I think.

If you're a electronically inclined tecno- know it all guy, buy the kit and build your own MS. MS1 and MS2 are not the same, through similar. 97% here run MS1. It's popular. If you're not a pioneer, get MS1 as when you have 30 questions, 97% of the MS users on this board can help you. Where as if you're like me, and have MS2, well, I have 3-4 people to call on instead of 100.

Sounds to me like you need to do some research on MS before you go buying one. Just go to the MS forum here and start reading. You'll learn all kinds of stuff just reading random threads where other people like you ask questions and troubleshoot their system.

I'll sell you my MSPNP for $1500, including the current map I'm running. I'll require a month lead time from date of payment received.
