No big reasons though hehe.
Not sure I would go so far as to say it is superior to other systems based on hardware/features alone. I would take a vipec, motec, proEFI or haltech over it based on features alone.
What it is better at is bang for the buck, there it is hard to beat. I also really like the open sourceness of it but for 99% of us that really doesn't mean all that much besides supporting open source movements.
That said I would have no issues running a megasquirt if budget was an issue (which it always is lol).
