Just a couple of points:

Megasquirt 2 cannot do 6 cylinders of sequential injection without a goofy add-on board. Sequential injection is a very nice to have on an air-cooled, 2 valve engine. Much better, and lower idle. Megasquirt 3X is the 6 cylinder sequential system.

Where is the thingy on CIS that shuts the fuel off when you are coasting at closed throttle. OH, there isn't one.

There are very few new gasoline vehicles running with MAF only. The range of airflow is too difficult to measure with just one sensor. This is especially true of a turbo motor, which acts like a small engine at idle, and a large one at WOT. It is common to use a MAF to control idle and part throttle only, and switch to speed/density at large throttle/boost. The speed/density measurement has become quite accurate when throttle adaption, and VE learning from the WRO2 are factored in.

But who cares about that. You are not trying to achieve PZEV emissions. Your job is to ***** slap brand new Audis. Pick up an import tuner mag. You will see 20 year old kids with Civics dialed in with sequential injection, mega-boost, and NOS, and they didn't spend 10K doing it. I was 20 years old once. About 95% of your brain is devoted to sex, 2% food, 1% studies. If they can pull that off with the remaining 2% of their brain, just imagine what you can do!
