Yeah, I know 'budget' and 'boosted' don't really fit in the same sentence together haha. I'll definitely evaluate my options before I pull the trigger on anything, but, as always, the input of experienced folks like yourself is always appreciated.

I'm not sure what you started with, but I was eyeballing the assemble-yourself MS3 kits, which puts you $400 in the hole plus ancillary costs. I imagine it can be easy to make up the difference between that and an Econoseal, but it's still around half the price to start out with, so it was my forerunner based on not-so-extensive research lol

If you can assemble it yourself, and know everything is spot on, you can save some money there. The kit you are probably looking at will do batch fire injection, and dizzy ignition. To step up to full sequential, you will need the 3x board.

Oh shoot, somehow I'd thought MS3 had native 8cyl sequential capabilities.

So really, I'm looking at $520 + time to assemble vs $775 for VEMS from Marc. You're right, I think VEMS is gonna be the way to go

I am running V8 Vems from Mark in my coupe. I had him install it and tune the car. Can't say enough good things about it.
