    I'm in process of 3 megasquirt setups...
    Price really depends on how much time and effort you are willing to put into it.
    I usually buy the ecm uses and make my own wire harness and generally use junkyard sensors where I can. The setup I'm putting together on my 454 in my truck I only have 4-500$ total into it,but tons of time

    Bro. Cad Man,

    As Bro. kzhurley indicates it can take a bunch of time to learn, then source, the components for a Megasquirt setup. That is why my MS unit is sitting in a box under the table. However, in my case the ECM is there as is a wiring harness, so much of the work is already done. However, while the MS unit would give me far wider adjustability's than the older AirSensors unit that I'm using, I chose to avoid an additional learning curve if my goals can be met with the modified AirSensors unit. If those goals cannot be reached, out comes the MegaSquirt!

    As with most things it is a question of "pick your poison."

    Best,

    bro. d
