That seems more complicated than I would want to get into. I think I'd spend more time trying to get the thing to work properly for my application than actually tuning.

yea... i see what you mean now.

the lude is ODB1, so the ECU can be chipped. but mega squirt has the ability to be a stand alone (no honda ECU).. i would think this would be better then some piggyback job.

but i am not an expert on this... so i wanted to ask if anyone local is using/knows/or tunes with megasquirt.

its full featured and the kit is pretty cheap (as long as you assemble.. and i can do that)

the boosted lude had a few parts removed before the sale., replacing these parts will quickly add up to more then just getting a kitted ECU solution... or so thats what i am thinking.

this is why im asking.

Piggybacks are nice because of their simplicity and testing. But their disadvantage can be in flexibility. I think they all have limitations in respect to a stand alone solution.

Assembly of the Megasquirt may be easy, but reliability is the key. I'm not sure how robust it will be over time. And usually one thing wrong in your ecu can spell doom for a motor that has a marginally agressive tune.

I personally would go with a more expensive solution with some R&D and a company that's behind it.

I know Trackmasters uses Hondata. And from what I've gathered, it seems like a good solution at fair price. And I like idea of an experienced tuner being local in case I have trouble.
