The XEDE Processor is an interceptor style Engine Management System. It generates changes in fueling and ignition timing by changing the factory ECU’s load and crank reference input signals to improve the factory tune, specifically to suit an aftermarket exhaust, engine modification or supercharger.
Additional functions include – electronic boost control, optional dual maps which can be changed at the flick of a switch while driving (e.g. High/Low boost or Power/Economy programs). Two stage intercooler water spray control or any on/off or PWM function for additional injector/s.
How It Works
The XEDE Processor is wired or connected into a vehicle’s factory wiring loom and intercepts the signals travelling to the ECU. By intercepting the crank reference signal it can advance or retard timing. By intercepting the load signals, e.g. analogue voltage of an Air Flow Meter, it can make the mixtures richer or leaner by giving a higher or lower load signal to the ECU.
Most factory parameters are retained
- Cold start functions
- Idle control
- Knock sensor functions
- Closed loop control
- Limp home operating strategies
- Fan and Air Conditioner controls
- Immobiliser functions
Fast Tuning in Real Time
With multiple decades of experience tuning engine management systems from Australia, Europe and USA, Lachlan and his design team incorporated what they believe to be the best functions from the engine management systems at the time into the XEDE’s tuning software – XMAP. This means fast, intuitive, on-screen tuning in real time.
Base Tuning Maps Supplied
All XEDE Processors are supplied with a base map selected from ChipTorque’s program database based on the vehicle’s modifications. XMAP software can be downloaded for free and allows you to fully custom tune the vehicle’s parameters if needed
Not Processor Specific
Can be tuned to auto/manual, series1/series2 regardless of current software in the factory ECU.
