SpeedFactory 4 Bar MAP Sensor K Series – New Style Civic Si/S2000/CRZ (1-43+PSI)

Speedfactory 4 Bar MAP Sensor – 06-09 Honda S2000, R18, 2012 + Civic Si, 2013 + ILX, 09-10 TSX and CRZ SpeedFactory 2.5, 3, 4 & 7 Bar MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure) sensors use state of the art bipolar op amp circuitry with thin film resistor networks built into each micro chip. Pressure changes are calculated on a true linear 0-5 volt scale via a specially designed silicon pressure sensor that also compensates for temperature changes. The unique ability to compensate for temperature changes allows the SpeedFactory 4 Bar MAP sensor to remain a minimum of 99% accurate from 32 degrees F to 180 degrees F through out its range of scale. With the true linear pressure vs. voltage scale there is never a need to re-tune at different altitudes as with other sensors. Competitors sensors on the market don’t have true linear scaling which can cause your engine to go out of tune with elevation changes, often resulting in idle problems, poor driveability, and catastrophic engine damage. SpeedFactory 4 bar MAP sensors can precisely calculate boost pressure from 1-43+ psi (7 bar 1-80+ psi,) while still allowing smooth stock OEM drivability at any boost level. Conveniently packaged in an...View more

Revo SPS Serial Port Switch

Revo SPS Serial Port Switch

One of the big benefits of the Revo remap is that on many cars it is configurable on the user end. This means that instead of a one size-fits-all remap you can adjust various settings in the remap, fine tuning it to ensure it runs well on your vehicle. The Serial Port Switch or SPS functions as an addon for vehicles running a Revo remap. It allows the remap on the vehicle to be finetuned. There are various reasons you might want to do this. Varying availability of high octane fuel might lead to you wanting less aggressive settings to ensure it still works well on lower grade fuel. You might also want to dial back the remap a bit for poor weather, lending your car other drivers or just for day to day commuting. On some vehicles the SPS also allows access to anti-theft features or valet mode. SPS is only compatible with vehicles already running Revo remaps, it is not available for all Revo remaps. Please consult with your engine mapper for suitability. Please note: The SPS is not a remap device. It’s an add-on for vehicles already running a remap.View more

Revo SPS Pro In Dash Control Panel – White / Color FIS

Revo already offer a huge amount of direct control over the exact map you’re installing on your car. While a factory map will be designed to work for a wide range of fuel and conditions Revo are allowing you to tweek the map to suit your specific vehicle and the fuel you will be using – enabling you to get the most power possible out of your vehicle, and to select the exact driving experience that you want.Now with SPS Pro you can switch between these settings directly from your dashboard.With SPS Pro it’s as easy as changing radio station to switch between pre-set maps-and on some vehicles you even have access to SPS Pro features enabling you to individually configure boost, fuelling and timing settings!This means that you can have one setting saved for high performance fuel like V-Power or Momentum 99 and another for lower octane fuel. You can also return the car to a stock power setting quickly and easily either for more relaxed driving, or for letting other people drive your car.This would already be impressive functionality, but Revo are also allowing you to access a range of hidden features and functions already built into your car....View more

WHAT IS ENGINE MANAGEMENT AND TUNING?

Management and tuning can describe a huge variety of modifications and adjustments, from routine adjustment of the ignition system and carburetor to major engine overhauls. At the other end of the spectrum performance tuning of an engine can include modifying even the core design of the engine.

Adjusting the air-fuel ratio, idling speed, distributor point and spark plug gaps, ignition timing and carburetor balance were basic maintenance tasks with older engines, but in modern engines fitted with fuel injection and electronic ignition many of these tasks are automated - although they can be calibrated if the car is to be used for non-standard purposes such as drag racing.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF ENGINE MANAGEMENT AND TUNING

Engine tuning

This term refers to adjusting or modifying the engine or its control unit, usually referred to as the Engine Control Unit or ECU. The aim of the adjustment is to improve performance, economy, power output or durability. There is often a trade-off when trying to achieve these goals: an engine that has been optimally tuned for fuel consumption might suffer performance loss, while an engine tuned for optimum performance might use more fuel.

Chip tuning

Modern car engines are fitted with an EMS or Engine Management System which can be adjusted to various settings, all of which produce different performance and fuel consumption outcomes.

Manufacturers often make a limited number of engines which are then used in a variety of platforms and models. This enables these manufacturers to sell cars in different countries and to different groups of buyers without having to build different engines for all these markets. This allows for one engine to be used by all these people, because the engine can be tuned to suit their specific requirements.

In this regard chip tuning refers to modifying a programmable, erasable ROM chip in a car's ECU (electronic control unit) to improve power, fuel efficiency or emissions.

Remapping

Remapping is a fairly new and very simple form of tuning. It is most often performed on turbocharged engines that are fitted with modern ECUs. The majority of new cars have ECUs, most of which are supplied by Delphi Technologies or Bosch. These are fitted with firmware that controls a variety of settings for the fuel injection system and engine to operate.

The factory develops its standard firmware to achieve a balance between power, fuel consumption, fuel emissions, torque, service levels and reliability. This means that standard factory firmware never uses the engine's maximum performance potential because they are 'under-tuned' to strike a balance between the various factors mentioned above.

This is where remapping comes in. Having a remap installed simply means installing new software (map) on the ECU that re-calibrates the system for optimum performance. The 'map' software unlocks the existing, but unused potential of the car's engine and can increase both torque and BHP across the whole rev range.

In most cases this simply means an expert plugging a computer into your car's OBD2 port and loading the new software. The map can be custom-configures and the technician will normally take the car for a drive to tweak the computer system until it's exactly right for the purpose you want to use it for.

If your vehicle is still under warranty and you do not want to lose that protection, using an EPC tuning box will enable you or a technician to remap the car's ECU without leaving behind any trace.

Performance powerpacks

For those car owners who really want to get every ounce of performance from their cars, the performance powerpack is a great option. A good powerpack will include a variety of maps (see above for explanation) so the various ECU settings can be adjusted or re-adjusted depending on the driver's specific needs at the time.

Apart from that these packs also normally include a high flow air filter, which combined with the different maps offer even more performance benefits. The air flow directly affects the amount of fuel that can be added, and anything that restricts the airways through the engine limits the maximum amount of air and therefore the maximum amount of fuel.

A high flow air filter catches a high percentage of particles that might not only hinder airflow, but could also damage the engine. Such a filter reduces the resistance to airflow and thus enables more air to pass. It therefore also enables the fuel system to add more fuel to the mix, which in turn boosts engine power.

THE FINAL WORD

Whatever your reasons, if vehicle performance is one of your top priorities then modern technology has the answer in the form of re-calibrating the software that controls your car's engine to unlock its true power potential. Add the right kind of air filter and you have the ultimate performance package.
