Ugh, I see the DIY price tags of yore are over and done with. Good thing I like bone stock (cheap) MS1 systems, huh?

All the rest are still available. This is for the guys that wan't packaging that look the part too. The distance MS had come is testimony to how good the old stuff works, no doubt about it.

Yep, no place to keep the Dub at the new house and he needed a new project anyway. EDIS mods are minimal, but if you really want to split hairs it doesn't have stock code anymore either...

Couple weeks ago, this place is way better than Chicago in every way possible. Where I live there are 2 specialty machine shops and an auto parts store walking distance from my doorstep, and work is half as far as it used to be.

The garage is the biggest plus though, alread got the welder set up and I installed a vise in the bench just the other day. Project completions are going to triple, as long as I'm not on deployment that is.

So I'm stepping into MS and was wondering if anyone has the MS-pro yet? The only downside I see is the internal jumper wire set up. Any thought on this unit?

Awful expensive when a $300 unit ( MS2 on V3 board) would do most everything you want....

In reality you could reproduce the ms3pro functions for probably 2/3 the cost using the old style. BUT you lose the packaging, and the connectors. After looking at the effort and work put into my setup to make it it function like it does, a few jumper wires is nothing. The instructions are probably well written. Its not the cheapest option, but definitely the nicest. Take it from someone that has actually been squirted for a few years. Ms3 is the way to go for a turbo'd intercooled street bug. Pro just makes it clean.
