Cool MSD 6-Hemi Controller

Hi,
My question is if anyone has tried the 6-Hemi Controller form MSD?

http://www.msdignition.com/Products/...Late_HEMI.aspx

I'm looking to build up my motor, and I was wondering if anyone has tried using this setup? Any thoughts?

Interesting setup. Would a tuner be a better value as it can modify other peramiters beyond the MSD unit?

there are plenty of other engine mods i'd buy before spending $500 on that. then again I would recommend getting a handheld programmer with two custom tunes (everyday & race) that are specific to whatever mods you end up with.

I'm building a twin turbo kit that is capable of making 850+ hp. I would like to be able to modify the motors timing maps on my own. I have looked into tuners, but I can't create custom tunes with them. I would have to give my truck up for a week or two to have someone else tune it. It was just an idea, but has anyone seen any piggyback ecu systems that allow you to have full control of the motor?

I am using a iEMS3 for running my fuel injectors, timing, boost control, methanol injection, and nitrous. It is a piggy-back, but runs the fuel injectors directly.

Use the MSD-Hemi 6 and the EZ-EFI from FAST.

I also have full cruise control, instrument cluster, and every other feature the truck came with and have no error codes. The truck is happy and this can only happen with a piggyback.

Thanks for having me. I took all of last year off from racing, but I'm ready to go with practically everything in my setup being upgraded. Of course I also have more cameras for making new videos.
