    Default TD5 Sensor Box - Availible


    This unit is now available locally.
    The unit will deliver any of 3 options on-the-fly via a rotary switch:
    1.) Adjustable voltage supply to sensor
    2.) Regulated 5v back to ECU
    3.) Regulated 5v to sensor (factory default)
    Application:
    We can "fool" the TD5 system (ECU) in some ways,
    The AAP sensor can be manipulated for altitude corrections.
    The MAP sensor can be manipulated to increase boost pressure - no limp mode.
    The MAF sensor can be fine tuned / by-passed completely - fixed 4.5v fed.
    Coolant sensor can be fine tuned - to increase/decrease fuelling issues.
    The Fuel temp sensor can also be manipulated.
    Note: AAP and MAF sensors can be manipulated for over fuelling to increase performance.
    This unit is also a great 12v-5v USB / [email protected] power supply with full protection.
    Local is lekker as they say and I'm always available to assist installations. Any competent workshop will be able to install and adjust this unit.
    Regards

    Nice Jakes

    please explain the 3 modes in a bit more detail- ie: what sensors are tweaked in which mode, and to what effect on performance?

    Firstly this unit is for single sensor usage, a multi-port unit with independent adjustments is also available.
    Please note this was never intended to be a plug-and-play unit for performance, someone need to set it up according to your needs.

    Let's assume most sensors get a +5v supply from the ECU and return a 0-5v signal back for interpretation. That means if we alter the supply voltage we can "fool" the ECU in thinking something we want/calibrate a sensor.

    Switch no.1
    Example: MAF sensor - max boost = 1.3bars = 4.94v = limp home mode
    So if we supply the sensor with <5v say only 4.5v, the ECU would never "see" max boost. You would then be able to adjust boost up to where you get scared.
    Example: AAP sensor can be "fooled" to adjust altitude thereby also increasing fuelling and to alter the boost scale.
    This voltage setting is fully adjustable and still incorporate the sensor for a linear signal return.

    Switch no.2
    Example: AAP & MAF sensors can be by-passed with constant voltage of >4.5v to the ECU that would result in an over-fuelling scenario where as the coolant sensors can return <3.2v also for over-fuelling.
    This setting by-passes the sensor completely for extreme use.

    Switch no.3
    This will provide the sensor with a regulated +5v, smoothed and protected, like you got it from the factory.

    Hope this helps. The Full version only has 2 settings - startup and extreme, 5 sensors get manipulated with 1 unit.

    Then to quote Hugh Grant:

    Divine, how much?

    A PM will do.
