While there are plenty of dedicated boxes that address each of these
functions, integrating them into one box certainly strikes me as being the
preferred solution.  Oh, and did I mention that the system I'll be using is
adjustable by laptop?  Also, if the designer ever changes the code, he can
just email me a copy and I can download it directly from my laptop into the
ECU ... a nice touch, methinks.

(Note for the uninitiated: I'm just funnin' with Graydon here.  I have the
utmost respect for all that he has accomplished with his 5ktq thus far and
I'm sure that by the time I've installed an EFI system on MY car, his will
be that much more advanced than it is today...)

Hoist with my own petard...  :^)
