There is good and bad with all electronics old and new. Todays are not as bad as some would like to make them out as most critics just don't understand them.
The real problem is the reasons we have to have so many with over regulations.
But with today electronics I got 300 HP reliably out of my HHR SS running 23 pounds of boost on pump gas. It ran 13's in the quarter and if I was dumb enough it could run 160 MPH top end. It also in daily driving got 26 MPG around town and 31 Highway,
The only place the electronics let me down is the launch control was not great and it made it hard to hook the FWD up. If only it was AWD or RWD.
