So there is a new motor sitting in my garage and I have gladly stripped it of the factory wiring and emissions equipment.
I am in the market for a standalone engine management system, but am not really all that educated on what to look for.
The motor is a 1.8t and I am looking to take advantage of it in the OEM configuration to the max and optimize everything else.
The other goals I see are: drivability (on the course, not the street), being able to set up and use a couple different maps (street/rain, autox, track/hillclimb) and gear dependent boost levels. 1st gear is useless.
(Cost is also an issue, my conscience will not allow me to go all out. I get more satisfaction out of driving the piss out of a semi-fast cheap car than I would out of a car that I've spent a fortune on.)
So far, I've looked at:
Megasquirt and all it's variations are definitely the cheapest options but require more setup and troubleshooting time.
Local competitor runs VEMs on his Miata and seems to be happy wth it. There is a local distributor/guru http://www.fireandfuel.ca but is a very busy and popular company.
SDS seems simple, but maybe too simple and it's actually not cheap.
I am leaning towards VEMs: http://www.vems.co.uk/vems.html
Can anyone share their experiences and possibly push me in the right direction?
