Syvecs is one of the best ECUs you can fit for that sort of money...keep it and be confident that your car will run well and safely

Loads of safety features you can configure, as long as you have sensors wired in (such as oil pressure and temp) and even better if you have a wideband lambda, allowing closed loop fuelling even on boost

Hi there

As above [email protected] said is the best ECU for money and really is worth to keep it

Running this ECU and I wouldn't swap this ECU,with right sensor and wideband is really great ECU,any other ECU with similar function cost twice or thrice more than Syvecs

Just search and you will see almost everyone who running high bhp,running only Syvecs(minority running SimTek/AlcaTek)

About the sensors/wideband speak here with [email protected] and have look too on Toucan

Download the Syvecs software from their website, connect your laptop and download the map, and take a look. If you want to email it to me, I'm happy to take a look

Ethernet cable - usual practice when installing a Syvecs is for an Ethernet cable to be ready-connected and tucked away somewhere, maybe in the glovebox.

If you can't find it, take look at the ECU in the passenger footwell, and you will see it has an Ethernet socket on it

You don't need any default calibrations - just download the software suite:

Running syvecs myself,the cranking before firing is another safety feature on the ecu and it does this to make sure the crank and cam signals are in sync (belt not slipped etc.)before it lets the car start.
Its the same on them all.

Running wideband also on mine and if yours is there should be a wiring harness plugged into the back of the ecu or possibly using an external type like innovate,aem etc.

Run SCal, and then with the Ethernet cable connected to the ECU choose "Device" and then "Connect" from the menus. You should see this:

Name:  SCal_zps2a57d9ca.jpg
Views: 0
Size:  23.9 KB

As t'other Tim says, you can also take a look at the back of the ECU - there is the Ethernet socket, a smaller "modem" type socket (for Toucan, for example), a thermocouple socket, a 12 way expansion connector and a 6 way connector for a wideband.

See what's plugged in and that will tell you if you have a wideband or EGT. Otherwise, connect using SCal and once connected, you can save to your laptop the "calibration" that was loaded up from the ecu when you connected to it, and look at it "offline" and/or email it to someone for a look-see.

HTH.

Be sure to use a crosslink type Ethernet cable, not a straight one, as the straight one will not work.

Reading on 22B.com that it is possible to connect to syvecs via wifi, negating the need for an ethernet cable

Needs an adapter - not sure if it's off-the-shelf or a custom item from Syvecs?

You do not need a crossover cable for this to work. Any ethernet cable will do.

No, doesn't have to be connected to Internet. No, wideband is not a standard item with Syvecs; it's something you buy as an add-on.

We do them, along with the cable you need

Launch control and antilag are there as standard - just needs to be mapped in

Pukka NTK wideband with a plug-and-play lead, ready to fit to your downpipe and plug straight in to the Syvecs is 167.39 delivered. Easy enough to DIY

The cable has to be a patch cable.

The ecu can accept a wide band sensor connected directly and Tim can supply you with the package to do that, it has the wideband controller available but needs the sensor pack to go with it, and then the maps have to be changed to configure the sensor and the target areas you want to control.

V good piece of kit, can be overkill for mild mods but if the car has it then you are in clover as they say.

cheers

Its not "needed" but is far better to have at the level of power you're aiming for if just for the safety parameters alone.
