is anyone selling prebuilt MPGuino's?

Is anyone out there selling a MPGuino? I'm currently lacking spare time, but would like some kind of gauge for my '92 civic vx, and I'm sure there are others out there as well.
someone want to give me their price to build me one?

I've been looking into it but keep hitting snags, still working on it though.

How much time does it typically take to build one?

It really depends on the experience level of the person assembling it. It could be 15 minutes, but if you don't do it right the first time then add in a lot of troubleshooting time.

I got one for Christmas ,
and,
It's been a long while since I did any electronic soldering,
so,
After I hone my soldering skills, I will put my kit together, then relay the time a relative novice take to assemble it.
Then I will be all over here asking for help.

How much is the kit?
I have the assembly skills, but almost no programing skills and very little spare time, so like I said before, if someone can put the kit together, set it up for a 1992 civic vx, put it in a box and mail it me I will send them money, within reason of course, I'm thinking $150-200 for something that I can plug in to my car, I'm sure there are others out there with VX's that would feel the same way, I've met a few, so if you just focused on that one car, or on pre-1996 geo metros I know you could make up a batch and sell a few, enough to make it worth your time.

The kit at this site is $40. I would assemble and program it for less than you offered.

what would I need to do to hook it up to my civic once it's built? does it hook up to the injectors, cars computer, or to each component? is it a problem to program it without having it already in my car if you don't have the same model vehicle?

I just put in an order for some boards, should be assembling units within 2 weeks. We needed a US supplier anyway, the mail exchange with Canada has been pretty bad lately. I should be able to build and test them for ~$20 over the materials and handling costs, and am especially well positioned to to support what I sell

Oh, I wish I would have waited, dcb! I've been fiddling with mine for way too long now. If this batch of resoldering fails, I'll be hitting you up!
