This has my vote, too. Why? They appear to have 5 products, only one of which handles anything resembling a patterned signal (missing tooth), and with a maximum of 5 outputs (2 inj, 3 ign). Why not have the same unit do the other stuff too? Weird. Also, they state interpolation like it's special. You're low on things to state when you quote that.

www.perfectpower.com < anyone know anything about the two similar standalone options from these guys?

I'm voting for them because I couldn't find any sort of spec sheet on their site or in the "brochure" which I find very odd. Didn't bother looking at the piggy back stuff.

These systems are actually pretty good, from what I know, and who I know using them. Their website sucks, though, and their marketing department sucks. And maybe that's why they're not better known?

Added with zero count!

A vote for gotech based on a tale related to me by the unhappy ex-owner of one. He had it installed by gotech themselves and had the owner and chief developer himself working on the install, thus ruling out out owner-idiocy. They could not get it to run well or even idle. He went back to the standard lucas. I have the same motor (Rover V8) and have mine running very nicely on MS1 which is voted one of the worst here. So that doesn't say much for gotech.

JaniM, is that a vote for (im)PerfectPower?

AncientGeek, added!

Also added, with zero count: http://ecumaster.com/en/

This is Polish developed. I stumbled across it four days ago when searching for a BMW engine, clicked on a Spanish website that deals in this gear, and then found it. Looks OK. The proprieter/dev is a friend of a friend of a friend, and apparently started selling them from his home to order DIY style. Cool :-) Website could do with some fixes like 10.0 instead of 10,0 etc, but seems pretty capable.

Im new. My vote is Edelbrock's pro-flow 1.

Good:
Has and held tuner no pc needed
Pre burned chip for your cam profile
Install and start, good base tune

Bad:
Cost, it was $2400 new but included everything, intake, tb, injectors dizzy, rails.
Obsolete in 6 months with gen 2 system that was not compatible
Had to get chips burned by edelbrock for your (their) cam profiles
Little to no support as everyone ditched them in favor of programmable gen 2 ecu
Non programmable past 10% enrichment
No pc connectivity
Change cam, get new chip (at a price too)
Magnetti Marelli board looked like a MS1 board.
No boost


Ill throw in a jab at MS1. Even with a v2.2 board and MS2 daughterboard, it still lacks usb support ( little chance a serial-usb cable working unless it is ftdi chipset based) no onboard vr driver, you have to make/add it and the variables are over the top complicated. There seems to be 3 ways to wire/do everything cut here, add this, remove that, etc. There was a 3rd party that had an MS1 with dip switches that seemed a great idea. Oh well. Im willing to try 0.6 if There are any bare boards left. My smt solder skills are mad. :-)

Oh, props to old Holley pro-jection analog systems. Simple, 3 pots to adjust and you are rolling. Forget custom mapping, this is a carb squirting gas at a controlled rate. Buddy loves it on a mild 68 Ford Mustang.

Yes, vote for neverPerfectPower.

How about old CB-performance quick tune for AC VW? They have a new MAGNA ecu.
Didn't found more info of that.
