Good thread. Good times.
Good times indeed. I love giving it a read every now and then for a laugh.

Fun fact; it would appear that our good friend Matt has created another wonderful bespoke ECU for the Rocketeer V6 conversions, called the ME442R. "It's been about 5 years of hard work" to quote the man himself.

Jump to 7:00 for the good stuff:

5 years of hard work for an ECU used on a swap that's been around for 2 or less.

The math checks out.

Slightly off topic, but why on earth would anyone go through the trouble and expenses to fit a V6, plus aftermarket intake, exhaust and ECU only to make 230hp at the crank?

Well that was a fun read. Even more fun when I realized that FM doesn't even sell that ecu anymore.

The Rocketeer kit to do that is about 7200 ($9200 USD), plus finding a used Jag v6..

Unless you have information that isn't publicly available, it's 6k/$8k (plus the AJ 3.0).

As to the appeal, it's (allegedly) a turnkey kit.

5995 + 20% local sales tax, from their online shop... Other locations may have different amounts of sales tax..

I'm running the FM221 and I like it a lot. There's something to be said for a system that was made for the Miata and is fairly simple to use. I got nothing against the MS ECUs and maybe they're better for the high power high dollar setups but so far I haven't encountered any need that the FM221 can't handle. I'm not a pro tuner and I've dealt with the guys at Flyin Miata for a long time so it was an easy decision for me. I liked the idea of lifelong support from FM and said support has been pretty good but not stellar. I'm sure you know that FM doesn't sell them anymore cause they were spending too much time with tuning support. That wasn't exactly confidence inspiring to hear but I've been running this for more than a year now and it hasn't failed me or left me wondering what the crap it was up to. "No regerts".

so you deleted Alex_me posts for no reason?

his post:

Hi,

We'll always be happy to offer support for FM221 units, so nothing to worry about there. In regards to Flyin Miata, from all the communication we've had with them (in addition to the official statement), the big reason for them dropping all ECUs from their range is the risk of fines, as standalone ECUs are seen as emissions defeating devices.

Regards,
Alex

Also for promoting a product and not being a vendor.
