That's because there is nothing special about wiring it or configuring the software to run a rotary. It was quite simple.

Yes. FT500 has PWM (pulse width modulation), it's on "Idle actuator" window.
Also, this may help in the future:

FuelTech

I made the switch from Haltech to FuelTech so far I think it was worth it. The boost controller in conjunction with CO2 is straight up bad ***. No need to spend on AMS Boost Controller.
Tuning very much similar to Haltech except primary and secondary injectors having their own table. Here is a video of my car starting from the ECU and a pic of my wiring harness.

Fueltech

I can't so enough about my ft500. it's just been flawless. very easy to use. I am very surprised more have not made the switch. the rotary support is top notch. Anderson the owner of fueltech is crazy in love with rotarys too.

Somebody really should make a patch harness to adapt the Fueltech ECU over to the factory FD harness. Once there is an option that doesn't involve a high dollar custom harness or massive amounts of user-wiring this ECU will take off within the rotary community. If I didn't already have a full custom LMS harness setup for my haltech and cdi ignition I'd be going this route for sure.

How does the FuelTech do on a streetcar and can you retain the stock dash? I had heard it was good for drag racing. I still daily mine a lot and rarely if ever go to the dragstrip.

It has plenty of drag race features that usually you'd not need in a street car. Of course you can retain your stock dash. Actually it can replace all the custom gauges we put in our cars like boost, fuel/oil pressure, water temp etc etc. It's pretty neat.

I can make custom patch looms for S5 and up RX-7 and S1 RX-8.

Why don't you just make a support thread like what I did for Emtron? A thread like this doesn't hold water...

I think both platforms are equally capable and that between these two it will primarily come down to software preferance for a capable tuner.
