Anybody using megasquirt?

I'm just looking for some input on this system. Is it any good and what are the pros and cons?

Here is a link to it.

I don't know anything about it, but it looks interesting.
I'm going to have to do some research on it.
I may want to use it instead of the PMS.
It sure has a lot of options and add ons.

I heard of it on the Home Made Turbo website. For the price I think I'm going to go ahead and give it's shot.

Better study up on it.
From what I've been reading it looks/sounds fairly complicated.
However, I do like all of the different modules and controls available.

Keep us updated.
I'm still interested in it too, just a little less than before.

Yes, but I think they all are to a certain extent.
It will just take some studying and learning.
You can do it!

Actually! The more I read about it the more I like it! I don't think it will be that bad.

I'm pretty sure 99 percent of the time you try to hook that thing up your car may never run again.... If I wanted to have super adjustability I would get a newer 5.0 PCM and harness and get the computer custom tuned...... That thing looks like a huge headache..... Too many variables for me

That would be great!
Do a really good write up and maybe we can get it put in the articles section.

I had a megasqurit, on a 90 chevy pickup. I never worked all of the bugs out of it and put a 750 holley on the truck.
