One of the senior auto-crossers locally here drove my car with the 2560 on it, the boost comes on nice and quick, 2554 a bit sooner. I've got a 2560 I've been toying with selling but that's reliant on me finding a good used gt2860rs -> gt3071... budgets suck :(

This is one silent reason why Megasquirt sucks.

Or spend a little more money and get my unit, which doesn't have any of the issues above.

Quick question...will a zeitronix work for me? Like can I use it as a wideband for my car?

Yes, you can, but it is really not recommended. It is in fact, by far, the worst wideband I have ever used. Get an Innovate MTX-L or an AEM.

epic. Thanks tech!

any other super cheap parts that you know of? I know you did a quality budget build and I'm looking to do the same thing. The T25 has a T2 flange and I can't find a decently priced manifold anywhere!

Innacurate
Slow display (if you are going for the VFD)
Slow/heavily filtered analog output
Connectors tend to break and come loose (RJ45/RJ11 that are certainly not meant for automotive environments)

Hell yeah. Everyone on m.net warned me that the people over here were jerks. All I did was post like an intelligent human being and ask for help in a respectable manner and I received a lot of great help!

Seems like a lot of the guys over there are the *********!

As I said to POPSTOY over there, "I've never had so many old dudes trying to jump down my throat."
