Hi eds911915,

RaceCapture/Pro 's intended purpose is to serve as a data acquisition system with control capabilities. Since the control capabilities are expressed in the Lua Scripting langage (for ease of use), it's not designed for high frequency and precise timing required by controlling the engine.

With the right injector and ignition drivers added and a big re-write of firmware it could be re-cast as an engine management system, but that's a different topic all together :)

Hope that helps!
