But is it overclocked?
I ran megasquirt for about 5 years and finally got sick of retunning every 4 months as the seasons changed. plus with all the elevation changes around Utah it just wasnt practical. It works very well for race aplications but as a daily driver, forget it! I just switched to obdII and called it a day!
I have never touched MS1 but things have come a long way since then. I am using firmware created by 'gslender' who is an Australian modder, he writes his own upgrades to the code and the number of features that are available now is pretty insane.
CAN-Bus which will be required to run on pretty much all newer vehicles also poses a problem that I'm starting to work on in that the MSIII CAN protocol requires a great deal of work to get to work with either automotive or J1939 CAN protocols, especially those running the 29bit extended header as opposed to the 11bit base CAN protocol. While there is CAN chips on board there is currently very little support. For those of use with disillusions of running many diesels or diesel VGT's on their vehicles, having CAN, especially J1939 support is essential.
megasqirt is a decent standalone, but for the about the same price you could go VEMS, in my option a much better system, and you dont even need to make it yourself.

This is awesome. As a new-media artist I work with this kind of stuff everyday. I've oddly never considered using my skills like this though.... Now if my car weren't impounded by the lovely city of Buffalo due to a complaint by a neighbour who thought it was abandoned (I've been using transit, bike, etc), I'd give this a shot this weekend.
So are you running MS3? I wonder how many features you lose going will the original, MS1. I'm thinking about using it on a swap, but I don't want to limit myself with what I can do.
It will be a turbo 4 if that makes any difference. I'd love to make a digital dash like you show.
