but not entirely relevant because that masochist apparently worked on reprogramming the stock Motronic DME. Any off the shelf stand alone EMS will come with some sort of software based user interface for programming/tuning. Some may be a bit clunky, but nothing like trying to decipher embedded code on a 20 year old Bosch motronic chip.

My race car has Motec EFI - its a very old unsupported ECU which has DOS based tuning software. A bit clunky vs. more modern stuff but very easy to use IMO. It runs awesome at WOT, some part throttle and idle issues, but its a race car so I don't really care. The part throttle, driveability tuning, cold start, hot start, etc. is the stuff that can take a long time to dial in perfectly.
