I had the same trouble with the FMS system, but I simply fooled the ECU 
into thinking it was running a 4-cyl engine, which works fine since it 
fires all injectors simultaneously anyway.   If it were a sequential 
system, I could not have done that.

FMS recently sent me some 5-cyl software to try though, so if that works, 
I'll be able to remove one potential failure mode, and simplify the system.

I used a 4-cyl harness, and added an additional injector plug.

What kind of cost are you talking here?

My very limited exposure to Electromotive has been good so far.  My buddy 
has two 6-cyl TEC units on his supercharged 6.5litre Jaguar V12.   It 
makes a conservative 650 hp.  :-)
