Consider in the future adding gravity-fed injection for properly rubbish economy cars (like the trabant)

Maybe this is discussed several times, but I thing adding of ECU modification would be good improvement, because with fine ECU adjusting you can make more lienar torque curve and good adjustment of fuel economy and emmisions.
Also adding A/C compressor and adjusting the size of alternator would be good addon, because they are direct contributors in fuel economy.
I'm playing this game from a couple of time and I thing this will make the difference between arcade game and real good simulator.

Re: Please Note: Engine Designer is Feature Locked

some suggestions i think are easy to implement, some i think not, but here they are:

-how about sequential turbos?
- and other turbo options for que same cylinder configuration? == like single on V8s, twin on I6 and I4, tri on I6, etc.
- also the whole camshaft configuration are too low, i never got a engine that could run to 12kRPM without severe torque loss. even "bike" engine.
- electronic and mechanical fuel injection comes later than real wold

For what I know, the ECU discussion was done several time and it was scrapped. Imagine that is bonded into the cam slider and the ignition timing system (and also that the EFI system have a better efficiency of the system thanks to the ECU).

Different turbo system will be available later on.

I don't think EFI and MFI came later. MFI was available during WWII on airplane engines and in the Mercedes 300SL gullwing (1955).
EFI was available in the market earlier than the 1988.

Re: Please Note: Engine Designer is Feature Locked

The only place where we will consider integrating an ECU limiter is in the forced induction revamp, because as you say it's impossible to get those super-flat torque curves without it even with modern turbo engines.
