in 2k3, there weren't many aftermarket boards to speak of. like was and morlock are the only i can think of. smartparts had been using the same two-board design in the impulse, and that wasn't for lack of space. they seem to have a talent for creating akward board designs (ion, shocker, nerve all use solenoids soldered to boards. shocker, nerve, impulse, all use two-board setups [ion could be considered here too]. A hesitance to move towards wired eyes also frustrates me...)
