View Poll Results: Is Fuel Injection really such a great boon?
Yes, we're much better off without carbs and mechanical induction. 39 90.70%
No, carbs were cheaper to own, maintain and tune and gave us similar power and FE. 4 9.30%

This could help consumers.

But at the same time access to modify ECU's are still limited to chip burning and tweaks. So if one feels the need to have a better control over their vehicle it is always better to have an aftermarket ECU / Piggyback unit connected to control the car.
I am thinking can we build our own ECU.... We will have full control

The increase in power was obtained while still retaining the two-valves-per-cylinder configuration. So, it is probably wrong to attribute Esteem's power hike only to the four-valve set up.
Gee thanks Directinjection !! Someone already pointed that out before you. And I also replied to it as well in post #19.
