Walbro ECM

What's the best way to get my hands on a walbro ECM and software to program it? I figure I can not buy it directly from walbro. And can I get a base map to start with? I want to be able to make my own adjustments as I make changes. And I don't have that option with the weber ECM. I already checked with weber and they were not wiling to provide a means to reprogram ( not surprising).
Thanks

Re: Walbro ECM

Mike at Red Rock Rails got one for me. Give him a PM. Software and cable.

I don't know what the current price is.

If you don't have a computer with a serial port, you will need a usb adapter. I bought a used laptop $50, to use just to use on the Revolt.

Nice
So tell us what exactly have you been able to do with the software?
Is it worth the purchase?

Re: Walbro ECM

The software will let you see whats going on, in the engine, real time. Air temp, injector pules time, MAP sensor, DC charging voltage, cam timing, engine temp, etc. It will also let you see and set throttle positions (TSP). Mike has found that many machines, are not set correctly. This means they can't get full throttle. I've reset mine a few times, due to wear in the throttle cable and linkage.

The software takes the "Guessing" out of your servicing.

If you don't have the service manual, get one. Well worth the price. Mike has these too.

Yes that is correct, but you will not be able to change any of the fuel curves or ignition tables or anything. The TPS setting is the only thing that you can alter. If you think that you can tune your car with this, it wont happen. The only way to tune your car is with a Vi-pec ECU. I know that you called me, and I am sorry I did not get back to you. My wife and I just had our first child last week and life has been crazy. Please feel free to give me a call back and I will help you out. Thanks Mark

The snowmobiles use a bosch unit. So, not the same.


Mark, Congrat's on your new arrival....... Also I'd like to stop by sometime and meet you. Got some motor questions of my own. Maybe next time I head up to BHC?

Mike
