Wow, they are expensive!!!

Have you considered MegaSquirt or MegaJolt?
(if you havent heard of them, they are DIY ECUs that you build yourself)

I would have thought that mapable ignition on a road car is where it makes the most sense, particuarly if you are converting from standard injection, or of you are constantly making little changes to engine performance.

Megasquirt looks fantastic, I didnt realise it would be so possible to "make your own" mappable injection system :lol:
