Looks like an offshoot of Megasquirt, but comes complete and ready to install.
Big issue would be reliability since you wouldn't have a backup. The 14CUX won't work with the distributor-less ignition.

Yow! That's over $1700. You can buy plug-and-play MS for the Rover V8 for $700 less.

For about the same price you can get a plug-and-play MS 14CUX compatible

I believe that V8development suppose to be coming out with a straight swap for the 14cux ecu to a megasquirt so you dont have to replace the harness or anything as well.

Tony.....

Since I already added a MSD 6a CDI, Blaster coil and the Boost Timing Master I seem to have a rudimentary and adjustable ignition control, so I could just get the MS Plug and Play Fuel Only replacement for the 14 CUX instead of entering into a completely new world of re-wiring for distributor-less ignition without any backup.
I read CANEMS installation and knew I was way beyond what I wanted to learn and do.
If the MS unit bellies-up, then I could plug in the 14 CUX, switch a couple of connections and be back on the road. Right?
I like the lower price, less hassle and having a backup, but how much performance will I lose by not having the system directly control the ignition? Any idea? I intend to have it dyno tuned.

William...

Yes they do and here it is: http://www.v8developments.co.uk/ under products and injection

Sent V8Ddevelopments an email and Shaun responded right back.
Very helpful, detailed answers to all my questions and good suggestions.
Decided to go with the Plug and Play fuel only replacement for the 14CUX but with 2 AFR inputs and wired so that I could add a crank-fired distributorless ignition later. Takes about 10-20 minutes to install and I can use the 14CUX for a backup. You also delete the restrictive MAF with this setup.
Shaun recommended that I just use the software to program the ECU and that a dyno wasn't really necessary.
If anyone is interested I'll post again after I install and tune it.

Really appreciate your ongoing advice.
This is an entirely new area for me - electronics, supercharging, programming - and you've been very helpful.

Thanks
