Yup, even our Mxxx builds are quite pricey once you get all of the upgrades you'd need to run a turbocharged car, lambda control, logging, etc etc.

They aren't comparable. Not even in the same category of products. One controls an engine, and one runs an engine.

Sirlaughsalot please educate me on the difference. I guess i thought i knew about what an ecu did but i guess i have a lot to learn. Does the motrc give you more power or better delivery of that power?

Microtech = You Set Values, it does it's best to kind of keep those. There's VERY LITTLE LOGIC. It's just set it and go. Doesn't do well for huge temperature swings, altitude change, if you somehow lost control of one of your sensors, charge pipe fell off, etc

MoTec = You can build logic tables upon logic tables of control in which if something happens, it triggers a dozen other things with it. The depth of the programming allows you to run a vehicle CLOSER to it's limits while running safer. This is because when it trips one of your built in flags - knock, EGT temp, boost control, etc, it CONTROLS the motor back to your preconfigured safety margins. The software is intuitive and easy to spot vehicle faults. You most definitely get what you pay for.

Until you get into OEM Grade like dSpace, MoTec is in a league of it's own with aftermarket engine control units.

Short Answer: You'll make more power for longer on MoTec if you know what you're doing.

Damn sounds bad ***. Wish i had 7000 bucks laying around. I would be all over it. But wait even if i had the cash to spend who tunes motec? Either way the truth is i wish i had a motec with a good tuner. I love reliability. The cost of rebuilds for our motor are not getting cheaper. I know back when imsa were running the 3 rotor rx8 at the 24hr rolex they ran motec

Shane T has done a TON of MoTec Rotaries, including the 20B from Lucky7Racing and this MONSTER (I hope the video shows up... This is exactly how I'd do an FD)

I've seen them do work that was pretty commendable over the years but it seems as if they've shut down? Unfortunate since Lemon/Mazdatrix is (from what I've been told) in Signal Hill is getting out of the business as well.

Edit: Sorry, Shane T has not gone out of business but Twins Turbo from what I've heard. Shane T is someone whos brain I'd like to pick RE: tuning advice.

Truth. And congratulations! I was almost able to pick up a dev M1 GPR off of ebay for peanuts but I spaced and it went for next to nothing
