A few more tidbits to reinforce my "would not" to Link/Vipec:
Firstly, all firmware and tuner versions are linked 1:1 which implies poor software architecture to not handle multiple variants in one app.
And the big one: All versions prior to G4+ did not do VE based tuning! To me that means that all prior versions sucked. Apparently they made a big deal out of it... searches for video... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZGH6sQ8FdA
< explains that links below G4+ work very similarly to MegaSquirts! :-( Primitive and horrible.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpHXvTOJy7c
< if you watched the above, this is just the last 11 minutes of it, no need to rewatch...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1alafpLOqB8
< dyno noises over the top of presenter during video, don't stop the operations for a show! :-D Looked promising, and then they dropped the bomb: 2 VE tables! One for each fuel in their multi fuel setup. Fail. Everything except that is required. They have the rest, but... anyway. I expected multi fuel to mean secondary injectors use a different fuel, wrong. Maybe you could set it up like that? In the next video he admits that VE2 is a fudge factor, so as long as they know, I guess...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkT2Ot02QLw
< embarrassing QA session. Fru not Through. Sigh. :-D Kiwi accents down south are a bit stronger, that's for sure. One tidbit to notice, zero proper MAF support. They're also promiscuous about load on their tables. I had load as an option on early firmware versions, but some time ago I changed that to be more sensible and be dedicated to a specific algorithm.
G4+ actually sounds fairly reasonable with most stuff covered fairly well. Not quite on the money in a lot of areas, but good enough to get the job done effectively, I guess. If not for my fetish with FreeEMS, I'd consider being a good patriot and follower and running a G4+, but nothing earlier than that, yuck.
