Something a little old skool on the rolling road for mapping last week. This MK6 Ford Escort Van is fitted with 2l turbo Zetec engine and running Megasquirt aftermarket engine management.
This van brings a whole new meaning to “white van man” 😂
MegaSquirt is a general-purpose aftermarket electronic fuel injection (EFI) controller designed to be used with a wide range of spark-ignition internal combustion engines (i.e., non-diesel engines.)
The van arrived running a base map. A base map is a “close enough” map to let you drive safely to the tuner for a real full tune. This allows the car to be moved before the mapping process.
With the van strapped down on the rolling road we began the process of writing the custom remap on the Megasquirt after market ecu. We ran the van on the rolling road as we adjusted the fuelling etc. Always monitoring how the van was reacting. When we started making the power we were expecting the fine tuning began.
Once we were happy with how the van and engine set up was working with our remap and the standalone engine management we ran the van again on the rolling road.
Have a look at the power results below…
