What is Engine Management?
Engine Management is a term used to describe the fine tuning of an engines performance and efficiency electronically. This is done by means of a device known as an ECU, or Engine Control Unit. Engine Management Systems operate by monitoring vital statistics such as air intake, and fuel injection, and control these in real time to ensure that the engine runs at peak performance.
Some of the variables controlled by the EMS include:
- Fuel Injection: Precise fuel to air ratio.
- Ignition Timing: Crucial for producing maximum torque and safe operation .
- Idle Speed: Compensates for factors that increase engine load.
- Variable Valve Timing: Optimisation of cylinder air flow.
When is the best time to upgrade your ECU?
Typically, you should upgrade your engine management after modifying your induction system and other such parts. M-Tech offers various products, including throttle bodies and engine upgrades, which may be purchased alone, or as part of an engine management package.
If you're looking at embarking on a new project, or maybe just need advice and assistance, drop by our community over at the mapping forums.
