The level of sophistication and tune-ability of engine management seen in modern production vehicles such as this Corvette is astounding to me. Not quite the level you would see in a $2000 Megasquirt system, which is why I balk at the idea of cheap EFI. Do you need this level of precision? Probably not but it is sure nice and done right.
Please tell me what function the Corvette has that MegaSquirt doesn't (that is needed for engine control).

MegaSquirt uses SMT technology on certain board types, others are built through through-hole if one chooses.

This means pick and place machines and solder ovens that repeat quality 100% once dialed in correctly fully automated.

There is nothing cheap about MegaSquirt (printed circuit board wise).

I work at a company that builds $10,000 computers and million dollar servers; MegaSquirt manufactures their components the same as we do nor do they use subpar components.
