Is anyone on here running the megasquirt standalone on their audi? How hard was it to install and learn to use? Any kind of info on it would be nice.

Is it to unreliable for a daily driver?

if a standalone like mega squrt is done right it should be just fine and reliable as a DD

I'm running it (MS2/Extra 1.0.2 on a v3 board with wasted spark ignition) I've had no issues with reliability, it's been in my car for 6,000-8,000 miles. I wouldn't recommend it unless you have a turbo/engine setup that a chip tune isn't available for. Even then, I would recommend sticking with a commercial EMS like Autronic or AEM (I'd stay away from 034efi)

Do you have to deal with OBD-II or emissions inspections in your state? If you do, stop right there. If you don't, then you're good to go.

Some things that aren' working right for me:
Air conditioning
IAC (cold starts are a bitch without this)
