    It was just a thought to be honest. Megasquirt is peanuts in comparison to the other standalone ecu's so probably not worth messing about trying to make any oem ecu work on a c1j. However if you were going f4r/t the stock ecu's may be worth a look providing they arent a royal headache to wire up.

    We're going to start a debate here

    Why would you think MS is peanuts? Do you have any experience with it backing up that conclusion?

    He means cheap, not awful. "Costing peanuts" is a UK way of saying something is cheap :)

    Well the way Jon days it it's not worth getting MS up and running because it's peanuts compared to other ecu's which probably cost about 5 fold of the MS2, and i disagree because MS is probably one of the most underrated standalone ecu's in the market.

    Horror stories all come down to installer error and that's what people keep quoting unfortunately!

    Nothing wrong with ms - i meant peanuts as cheap compared to buying a £1k ecu from another company - no point in trying to wire up an oem ecu when its so cheap. I have been reading up on it and it seems pretty decent to be honest. Not sure why everybody generally spends £3-500 more for a standalone ecu when ms is a lot cheaper.

    Sorry, completely misread your post then

    Well the general advice is to use an ecu which your nearest tuner prefers, which is logical!

    Ms is really capable but you do have to figure stuff out yourself so for someone who prefers spending big money and getting it done ms isn't an option :)

    If someone ever wants to give it a try, i'm always available for help

    It only makes sense after you have spent the money and used the more expensive kit. The only exception I have really found is the Adaptronic which is why I use it, it has top-of-the-line functionality and user interface, and absolutely -THE- best customer service and support, but for mid-range costs.
    It's not what it costs to buy; it's what it costs to buy, install, set up, maintain, develop for your car, how easy it is to use and to learn, what it can deliver TO you as an end user, what it can interface with, what it can output to.

    Trust me, it's worth the extra investment initially. If it wasn't I wouldn't have one, and I wouldn't have talked as many people as I have into buying one.
