Default Dicktator ECU

Hi,
I am just curious if anybody knows anything about Dicktators ECUs on MX-5.
It seems based on MS-3 and it is dirty cheap... I am really tempted to give it a try but would be really thankfull for any info beforehand...

Are you located in South Africa?

I don't see anything where it mentions being based on the MS-3 (or what it is based on).

This Box can only run a single coil with distrutor or Magnetic Pickup provided it is a single trigger per revolution pickup.
Seems a problem

In fairness, there's multiple units including this one; Dicktator Engine Management Multitooth 36-1 ECU South Africa that will do coil packs or COP. But still have doubt what it's based on @ $313USD (unless my math is wrong ).

Definitely not related to MS3, or any other MegaSquirt, in any way.
