There are four ECUs that make up the current PowerFT catalog and each one packs a serious list of options that have helped racers break records and win races on various types of race tracks around the world. The FT600, FT550, FT550LITE, and FT450 offer sequential injection and ignition, O2 closed loop, Data Logger, Delay Box, Traction Control, Boost Controller, PRO-Nitrous Controller, along with powertrain management as standard features. Further eliminating the need for additional add-ons is the LCD display on FT600, FT550, and FT450 control boxes. The display features a TFT touchscreen showing real-time data and allowing the user to make adjustments without a PC connection.
The latest FTManager 4.73 software enables users to control electronic wastegates and the BoostedBoiz immediately added the new Turbosmart electronic wastegate to their MR2. One of the biggest advantages of using an electronic wastegate are the finite adjustments and ridiculously accurate boost curve changes. Most notably, it helps with power management in traction-limited applications. In the case of the FuelTech C8 Corvette, precise control of turbo boost at the shift-points prevents activating the factory ECU torque management controls, which could put an end to the high-power party if triggered. An electronic wastegate also eliminates the need to refill the C02 control bottle and other maintenance challenges associated with air-controlled wastegates.
