You are asking for $ without much of a plan, at least not one that you have documented. Have you done an open source project before? Especially a vehicle one? Do you know what the phrase "herding cats" means?

You are gonna need a plan, especially for something this involved.

Sounds to me like you are more interested in revealing the sins of the performance crowd then in a DIY ECU then. I do not know why O2 is not on the pinout you are looking at, but we both know that a O2 (Wideband O2 usually) is an essential tool for engine tuning, and it does not matter which goals you have. You would find a configurable WO2 decoder in ego.c

Once again, please excuse me for daring to post about this project here. Since I am a noob here and you are a regular, I submit myself to your judgement.
Love all your hard work that you have put into this.

As for the Performance and Efficiency people butting heads its very true. lol

I have seen this first hand with my project (600hp/50mpg turbo talon). Most people don't understand what or why I do it?

On your system can you run a wide-band in narrow band simulator mode?
Load/TPS switch over?

There is no build-in WBO controller yet, for now we are relying on external controllers. Anyway, if I am a ECU why would I need to simulate a narrow band - who would consume this signal?

You can switch between modes but only manually via tuning software, right now there is no dynamic switch. If you are referring to a dynamic switch, when is it useful?

That's for sure. Good news I have a plan.

I believe the goals for the https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-unit-ecu-firm are listed there.

As for herding cats, trust me - I am already enjoying this. There are so many people with opinions and ideas and not so many people who can focus and develop a particular feature, actually that's exactly the reason why I need funding to hire developers & technical writers for the boring stuff. So far I am failing to locate enough capable software developers and realistically 95% of the code is written by me. At least I was lucky to figure out how to focus some electrical engineers into developing the current board

I read that and didn't recognize it as a plan

The real goldmine here is the database of vehicle specifics. Anybody can twiddle mosfets in the right order these days and read ADC/frequency/etc.

Are you going to set the expectation that users contribute their vehicle specific data and that said data will be publicly available (i.e. also open)?

Here is an open source wideband monitor with narrow band output:

well, if it works. didnt do a code review. though something like (char)Base10+'0' would be more succint.

Exactly.

I know you are concerned with the whole performance thing, but maybe you would be available to have a glance @ wiki/index.php?title=Development:Source_code_intro and maybe review rusEfi code?
