As Shiv and others have said (& I agree), you can do a LOT more with an outboard processor than you can do by flashing the factory ECU. Meth injection, display & logging of data, throwing a boost gauge onto the factory dash display, etc.

A flash would be a 'great leap forward' only in the way it was in China under Mao.
