Megasquirts either work well, or have issues.

I am currently having issues with the manner in which Megasquirt controls coil dwell w/ the TFI ignition. Defaulting to 50% duty on the coil signal results in misfiring 4000+ rpms, completely poopy. The Ford intake and coolant temp sensors are not supported by default and if you are paying for the modifications run ~$140 extra for the hardware modifications needed, and then the idle control motor's cold/warm duty cycle routine ends up incorrectly handled so there *is* no idle control.

IMO convert to 89-93 MAF from a Mustang, using one of the A9L ECUs. You can fiddle to your heart's content via the J3 port, and TunerproRT are the things you need to check out on that.
