Improve engine management

The ECM (engine control unit) is the main engine control unit. The memory of this ECU consists thousands of variables, directories and tables. These data determine how the ECU controls the engine; such as fuel, ignition, boost pressure etc. 

In the engine there are sensors in various places that send information to the engine management.  The computer uses the program entered by the manufacturer to control everything. The program determines the amount of fuel that may be injected and at what time, the ignition angle, amount of turbo pressure, opening of the throttle valve etc. With chiptuning one will adjust these values.

RICA software development

With specialized tools, we edit and optimize the variables of the ECM software. This meticulous process sometimes takes several days. We test and measure all the adjustments on our rollingroad to see how the engine responds and performs to these changes. If the software optimization is complete, we will use this as a template when customizing similar software versions. To ensure that the software has the latest requirements, we review the templates regularly.
