RE: [DML] Re: Question for Megasquirt Users

If the hardware and install are the same then in most cases the map can be
downloaded -assuming- that the engines are in the same condition.

If you make that map flexible enough (de-tuned a bit) it will run.  If you
want to get that extra 5-10% performance then you need a custom tune.

I happened to ask a Megasquirted owner that very question: can one person
develop a fuel map that everyone else just downloads. He said "no." In his
opinion, it is impossible to have a one size fits all fuel map, even if the
hardware is 100% identical. 

Since he has installed Megasquirt, and you have not, I am inclined to
believe him rather than you.

where you have a good chance of getting an informed answer. Little chance
you will get more than a guess here. Since every install is a custom set-up
there are a lot of places for minor variations to creep in. Obviously for
someone else's map to work the entire system has to be identical. You point
out the obvious. Do you consider M/S conversions to be competition in your
quest to convert everyone over to carburetors? It's going to be a LOT more
expensive anyway. Lets scare them into thinking you have to pull off the
road every once in a while to reboot. Maybe you DON"T understand M/S.
