Are there differences between them besides their packaging? Do they both have all the same features?
nope, megasquirt...isnt pimp microsquirt though?
just wondering how you came to this conclusion? Not trying to argue. Just wondering if this is from your own experience or from their ad?Stinger Performance Plug-in Microsquirt Powered (PiMP) engine control unit is the most user-friendly and capable plug and play option available for Ford EEC-IV equipped vehicles.
Not doubting you just trying to get as much information before I buy anything.
Please do not act as if you know about our product when it's clear you do not. This is the second time you've improperly answered questions about our product. The only thing "obvious" is that you don't know anything about our product but choose to act as if you do. You don't even know the relationship between MegaSquirt and MicroSquirt and rather than figuring it out, you state we must have a type on our website.im not taking anything away from stinger and PIMP, obviously they buy their componets from DIYautotune... but, personally, i would rather get mine from the source. my $.02.
first off, let me publicly apologize to stinger for the misinformation, i was speaking about what i could surmize from their website.Please do not act as if you know about our product when it's clear you do not.

I'd just like to clarify that while the PiMP is MicroSquirt (MS2) based, it is most certainly not an "assembled DIY kit". We buy not a single component from DIY for our ECU's. We get the MicroSquirt modules directly from B&G (the white board) and the green board is custom made for use (our logo is on the board) and they are assembled with all surface mount components by Stinger Performance.
Not only are they all surface mount just like factory ecu's (unlike the DIY kits), they also have internal jumpers that can be plugged into different locations for different options without any soldering. This also allows the same ecu to work in nearly any 83-94 Ford without any soldering. Just move a few jumpers to swap it from a 2.3 to a 5.0 for example. Of course having this in the factory case also allows it to fit in the stock location in the stock hanger and plug into the factory harness.
Regarding the original post:
While they do share some features, we have additional features beyond what DIY offers (see the paragraph above for some of them).
It will control both high and low impedance injectors for 4 cylinders, or high impedance for v8's.
Thanks for the apology.first off, let me publicly apologize to stinger for the misinformation, i was speaking about what i could surmize from their website.
secondly, let me thank the stinger rep for clearing this up after more than 2 months... :shakehead where have you been buddy!?
no problem, i can admit when im wrong. i dont seriously expect anything from you. im not going to get into a debate with you about your product, i chose MS because i found the reps, knowledgable, and readily available right here on the forum where i spend the majority of my time, (and a response never went more than a day, let alone two months) they have proven to me that i made the right descision. im glad business is good for you and you dont have the time to watch "all the mustang forums on the net"... to the O.P. asking "P.I.M.P. vs DIY megasquirt"... you have your answer here, it seems they have corrected me about their product and it only took 2 months since they are busy... if you want good customer support, i can say from MY PERSONAL experience, i would NEVER stray from matt and jerry at DIYAutotune... theyve got my back, and will have yours...Thanks for the apology.
You can't seriously expect me to be on every Mustang forum on the internet every day or week, it's just impossible to do such a thing and still get work done here. As long as people don't make assumptions and post false information about things they don't know, it's not a huge problem as long as the information is available somewhere. A lack of information on a specific forum is better than misinformation.
The bottom line is, these questions are easily answered via email, on our PiMP specific forum, etc.
