Wideband and MS set me back about 350 bucks. It's recycled from my last car so it's kinda like buy 1 get 1 :)

LOL @ the sig..

Megasquirt is a home made ecu developed by a couple of guys for the general public domain. Controls fuel, spark, boost, methanol and an array of other stuff people have made for it. It supports realtime fuel and spark table adjustments. It comes either fully assembled (expensive) or as a box of parts (you solder it together yourself). Doesn't require a MAF to function, only a map sensor and/or TPS.

Its just a poor man's stand alone ECU. Do you have to go in for emissions testing where you live at? If you do, you are kinda fucked since the OBDII isnt there anymore...

No emissions testing in KC. But I left the OBD alone. I can plug in my stock injectors and pass an emissions test if need be.

Spark advance is still being controlled by the original pcm. As long as the maf is hooked up, it will pull spark if you have the traction control on.

Well the requirements change if I want it to do spark. It also needs to detect knock reliably or it's not safe.

I'm not sure if the MS has any traction related inputs at all, so I would probably lose the traction control feature entirely.
