Injector max duty reached - drop to base boost, and trigger Warning light.

Lean condition under power - drop to base boost, and trigger Warning light.

Low Oil pressure - Drop to base boost, activate limiter, and trigger warning light.

Low Ethanol Content - Limit boost to safe pump fuel level, and trigger warning light.

Overtemp condition - Drop to base boost, and trigger Warning light

Radiator Pressure - If the cooling system exceeds 'x' value drop boost, and trigger a light.

True Knock control - This is frequency and window based (like the stock ecu).

Differential Wheel Speed - Programmed allowed slip against non driven wheel speed. This allows me to launch the car under power, but control the slip for maximum acceleration.

There is more in there, but this gives you a pretty good idea on the safety features.

Jason,

It's great to see you back with the ProEFI computer. It's looking a lot more dialed. I look forward to learning more about it. If you want to try to run it on one of our turbo kits, let me know. I'll be in LA again in a couple weeks if you want to meet up.

Chris.

Chris, ABSOLUTELY! I am in Scottsdale, AZ though! Not too far from L.A.

Call me at the office sometime, we'll catch up! I need a clutch for this thing too!

Jason,

You won't believe our HPF clutches in these cars. They feel completely stock and hold all the power. Call us and we'll get one out to you. I'd like to see how you got the GT40 in there. We are going to be coming out with some cool new stuff for even bigger power numbers in the future. But I'm excited about possibly having two styles of HPF customers, one that want the capability to tune their own setups using ProEFI and one that wants it completely plug-n-play with the thousands of hours of tuning we have into our HPF/AEM EMS. I'm also excited about the competition this brings to the table and the variable option of customers running custom setups. They could use various parts of our kits and not others. This could turn the E46 M3 market into a market similar to the Supras.

Chris.

Damn, GT40! Looks like I might put my GTR purchase on hold.

Great work and looking forward to see what this unit will produce once you get the fuel sorted out. Congrats on your work.

Thanks! We have put down 830 to the tires on Supras with this turbo. So that is the potential. Ofcourse the stock exhaust will probably not allow that....but we'll see!

Jason,

You will need to become a sponsor to talk about your new products more on this forum. Definitely get in touch with the admins. If you want to work with me, I can promote this for you once we try it ourselves.

Chris.

This is impressive stuff. Love that it's in AZ too. With no speed limit, no traffic, & no cops, I could be in Scottsdale in well under an hour...lol.

Jason's shop is less than 1 mile from my work. I will gladly drop off my car for any development work, as long as Chris approves since I still have about 2 years on my HPF warranty.

Chris, please say the word.

From what I have read myself its not a turbo kit thats in the works, in hardware and software to run turbo kits and such on our cars.
