Gen1dak will become famous soon enough

Depends on what you mean by "better". Simply using a 360 computer on a stock 318 is pointless. The stock 360 computer on a modified 318 will give you plenty of room in the stock programming to provide better fuel curves for the higher requirements on a modded 318 while retaining milder ignition timing to maintain minimal fuel octane requirements, which is where the "no towing" issue comes in on the MP aftermarket units. If you want more ignition timing, the aftermarket unit has a few more degrees dialed in, and you will need higher octane fuel, meaning premium. I'd tend to agree that for a modded 318 in street duty, possibly towing duty, the 360 computer would be better. For max effort modded 318, premium fuel road & track duty/no towing, the MP unit would be better.
