Electronics? See carburetor. All joking aside, it must be noted that much of the improvement in automobile performance in the past 20 years has occurred simultaneously and as a result of technological advances in the field of electronics. The modern automobile is chalked full of electronic gizmos and gadgets. While itís easy to despise these items when they malfunction, itís hard to argue with the fact that they perform worlds better than the mechanical components of the past. Electronic upgrades and modifications can do wonders for todayís high-performance automobile.
Probably the most significant electronic component in your vehicle is the engine control unit or ECU. This device controls important engine parameters like fuel and ignition timing with incredible precision. Whenever modifications are performed to an engine, it is advantageous to upgrade the ECU to make the most of the new modifications. Aftermarket ECUs are programmable, allowing them to be custom tuned to make the most power from your unique engine and modifications. Many of todayís factory ECUs can be reprogrammed to a certain extent, through the use of reflashing tools. Gauges and dash displays have also been improved by electronic innovations. Todayís gauges and displays do a phenomenal job of keeping drivers accurately informed on the vitals of their modified engines.
For owners of turbocharged vehicles, boost controllers and turbo timers allow drivers to increase boost pressure and safely maintain their hardworking turbocharged engines. Couple these upgrades with an ECU tune and the gains can be substantial. Speaking of ECU tuning Ė wideband oxygen sensors provide an accurate air/fuel ratio reading to allow engine tuners to formulate incredibly precise adjustments and get the most out of every engine they tune.
Improved camera technology allows drivers to film their motorsport escapades with relative ease and at a cost previously unheard of. Modern cameras are lightweight, affordable, and easy to use. Installing a recording device in your vehicle gives you the ability to share your experiences with friends or study them to improve your driving.
Electronics upgrades can be complicated and confusing. To determine what solution may be best for you, whether it is a boost controller, turbo timer, or standalone engine management, we would be happy to help your particular needs.
