I've installed several old school Motec's in various cars, and boats. (M4, M48, M8) I'm probably intermediate level on basic automotive/marine wiring, Advanced level on datacenter & converged infrastructure cabling and design. Started with tractors and boat electronics as a kid, and got into car audio in my teens in the early 80's. Spent some time in the ARMY working on generators. Worked on everything from a pull start 1.5Kw to a 7.5kw turibine GPU for aircraft, (great for cooking hot dogs on the flight line) with the most interesting one being a PULL START 4 cylinder 3Kw, that I quickly converted to electric start against ARMY regulations. Ever tried to pull start a 4 cylinder?

I used to have it running with an old Motec M48 Pro, but it didn't have knock sensing, and ECU's have changed drastically, so I wanted to get to a newer ecu that provided me with better reliability, as well as a better selection of tuners locally. The car has been off the road for the ITB's, new heads and billet cams. The old harness was a bit dried out and if I had to make a new harness I may as well go with a new ecu. I'm glad I went that route.
