Open to various options but shopping on the frugal side (hence why I am not buying new). Going to weight many options before purchasing. Let me know what kind of deals you guys can offer! thanks

HarryB just offered you a great deal on an ms2 for your car.

Advise, you need an ms3 of any kind for your nb2 so you can control vvt.
New they are $1100-1200. Used $8-900.

Cant be frugal with a vvt car.

Harry wow, I didn't even see the second sentence of your post. I have my resolution super small so I blame that haha. I am definitely interested. since this is a ms2, will I need to modify it to make it have ms3 capability?

I've got an MS2 diypnp that's setup for 99-00. You could add the vvt box and convert it to your application. Includes an innovate wideband. $500 shipped and it's yours.

FYI pinout for 99-00 is different to 01-05 as far as I know.

I just checked out BOFI website.

Ms3 basic $889 when converting gbp to usd on google
And ms3 mini $664

How did you pay $822?

These are excellent prices.

I'm not sure why Rev sells the same ms3 basic ecu for $1099 for the US market and over $200 less to UK

It's due to how BOFI handles the VAT for European/UK purchasers. The price with VAT is around 1,075$, so close to the US Price for the MS3 Basic. As BOFI subtracts the VAT for US Customers, it comes out to much less when selling to US based customers. I used the coupon code EASTER7 to get 7% off, it may not work anymore, but I used it a few days after easter, so it may not be deactivated yet. You can also get other products on that site for significantly cheaper, a new garret 2560r comes out to around 750$ new, which is ridiculous (I think, not very familiar with turbo pricing)

I just tested, the 7% off code still works. That makes a new GT 2560R 700$ shipped to the US, MS3 Basic for 822$, MS3 Mini for 620$.

My point is that Reverant should also deduct the VAT from the purchase price for out of Europe exported goods.

And I'm sure he does deduct the vat and pocket it.

Just purchased the BOFI ms3 basic for $849 with that coupon code. Thanks for sharing! Now, need to do a bunch of research and figure out how to use and install and all that. Thanks for everyone's advice and help. I was going to do the vvt box as a separate entity, but from what I was reading, that didn't get the greatest reviews.

It shipped, I am being charged 42$ of import fees in addition to the 832$ I paid for the ECU itself. Not used to paying import charges, but its still a good deal

We in the USA are spoiled with almost no import dues.

Sell the same $832 item back to Euro customer and he will pay 20-40% import fees!
