I see the con, $1400 to me that's a con.

wrong heads, wrong cam
junk block, junk crank
junk rods, crappy springs
crappy lifters, etc etc

Damn it runs good though.

Haven't used either, but in reading the discriptions, it appears you trade odometer and trip odometer functions(useless in 1/4 mi. applications but nice for street) for playback info for engine parameters which would seem somewhat useless in a street car but could be used by a racer. The tradeoff in electronics keeps the price about the same...

These are made by Stack and are common in the Uk and rest of europe. They have always been pricey but very good quality. Look around for them under a search for "stack" and you may get them cheaper.
