So you are wanting ignition and injectors? No other controls?

Whatever makes it work to it's full potential that isnt a pig to set up, that could go on a rolling road for eg that most decent technicians could work on. Something common.
It's for the road not a racetrack

You just mentioned the most important thing, the guys who will be setting it up. You will find some people will not touch some set ups.

 

pointless getting one if you can’t find someone to set it up. They all do the same job and they all work about the same but the UI is the make or break fir some operators.

Therefore the answer being?

 

Omex, Emerald, megasquirt? Any others?

What Nicklouse said.

 

Speak to all your nearest rolling road places and ask which ones they can tune.

 

Also, use one where you can have the software yourself. I've not looked for a long time but some never used to let you have the software.

 

I have an Emerald and not had any issues.

VEMS, AEM, Haltech... Any! You pay for the speed, extra functions and after sales care.
