    Doesn't mean you have to use it. You can use a stand alone, and theres a few places that make a plug n play stand alone for AEB too.

    Hit up lugnuts tuning. I think 034 sells one too.

    As for emissions, I guess just throw your stock ECU and harness back in every couple of years? A little bit of a hassle, but could be well worth it depending on your setup

    I understand that, but need for sensitivity increases proportionally with output as margin for error diminishes. Tuning suites have their limitation, like that fact that the aeb maestro is setup with 500rpm increments for setpoint reference and interpolates the value in the dead band.

    500rpm comes and goes by pretty quick with a 60mm turbo. I, and many others, have had great success with big turbo setups using maestro on aeb ecus. All the way up to 9k+rpms.

    Well, the margin for error is dictated by you. You can leave yourself a small margin for error ,or a larger margin for error. Like was said above me, a lot of people have run it with great success and made plenty of power.
