Hi,

Yes, the damper is needed for FrankenCIS, and age related leaks do sometimes happen after a couple of decades of use. Simply inspect periodically as part of normal servicing, as you would with all fuel components.
Many OEM manufacturers such as Mercedes and Toyota ran caps or drain lines from the damper to minimise the possibility of fuel squirting around the engine bay.


The Toyota cover ^^

Roll-your-own using an Arduino is of course an option some have taken, but at the end of the day you will be hard pressed to match the MicroSquirt for price and features. The MicroSquirt is well within the range of acceptable automotive rated electronics, and reliability is an important factor to consider.

Also for the eWUR, per the initial posts in this thread there are simpler DIY alternatives to what we have created. It all depends on how DIY you want to be
