Update Instructable or make new Instructable?

If you have revised a project that you wrote an Instructable for, is it common practice to update the instructable or write a new one? My changes are not really full 2.0 level, but they are a significant new step. 

I have an Arduino based project, and I've pulled out the relatively expensive Arduino and replaced it with a dollar ATtiny85.

I'd recommend revising the existing Instructable to include the option of using the cheaper microcontroller.

Ultimately it's up to you, but I think it's a good idea to avoid repetition of content.

I agree with this answer. Once an Instructable has been live for a week or two, almost all new traffic will come from google searches. So updating rather than creating a new Instructable keeps the original post relevant and beneficial long-term.

You can do either. If you edit it's easier and faster but you can't enter contests and it will get less views. If you make a new one you need to re-write everything, don't just copy the text of the old one, and include a decent number of new pictures. On the plus though you can ebter contests and new guides get more views than old ones, typically.
