Tim he has his reasons. Check out his thread in ECU chat so this doesnt go off topic.

He also thinks that PRP users have "a lower level of automotive knowledge".

ok, thanks... never saw that

megasquirt will work for the focus. it can control fuel, timing, knock, built in map, iac, and basically what ever ever you can figure out how to wire up. but it will never match the stock focus ecu. for just a little more you can have a much more simple practical tool for the focus.

you cant say that people that have the prp have less knowledge though. i mean megasquirt can tune itself using a datalog of a previous run. the prp wont do that

but i dont ever argue with these HMT guys. they are so hard headed, lol. all i can say is good luck
