Xede was last to market, not priced to make people consider it strongly enough as an alternative to the UTEC, not marketed for crap in the US, etc...

How many people are at levels where they care about converting MAP to MAF... and are still using the stock ECU in any form?

Don't get me wrong, I understand your point, and appreciate that you shared the info, but I think you're on your own in large part with your Xede. If you're trying to get more people interested in it for the sake of a community to work within, I suggest writing up your experience with it - its quirks, its great things, hypothetical tuning scenarios (or real ones) and how the problems were solved via Xede tuning, its lacking areas if any exist, etc.

jblaine,
$.50 - $.48
Exactly if he wants to release a user tuneable ECU then there neede to be a push for tuning advice/support/ECT the marketing as a "you should already know what to do with it" Aint working out hence the serious peeps arnt jumping the UTEC ship for it. Besides like Rifts said it has some major limitations
