I think people have a lot of the same confusion about the knock lite as they did about the DTEC when it came out.

Reality is TurboXS can't focus on JUST Subarus and Evos - they need more generic products (and not just boost controllers) to grow the business. The DTEC line and Knock Lite are part of that. Don't keep thinking "But I already have a UTEC" - yes, you do get _some_ of the functionality for free with the UTEC. But think of folks with 2.5RSs who can now go to TurboXS and get a full tuning suite - DTEC + Knock Lite + Tuner, from one company, that integrates beautifully and looks very trick hooked to a Gameboy. You can tune fuel, log and monitor EGTs + Wideband AFR, and have a nice knock and shift-lite to boot, all for under $800. Ditto for just about any other car. Even though they're still expanding what cars they make full-featured UTECs for, the DTEC gives them an in to alllll the other cars that there would never be enough volume to justify the custom development of a UTEC.
