Hi there,
I have Ecutek on my stage 4 Gtr, not sure which version but the one where you cycle the maps via the coolant temp gauge I believe this is outdated and have been offered a free update at lichfields to the latest version,

Is the newest update alot better,
I think I get the option of pops and bangs, and rolling launch do you know any other options I will get?

Also how well does rolling launch work on a stage 4 car would I need more power?

cheers

I did mine tonight. Mine was cutting out on full boost the new file has stopped that. Very easy to do. Takes around 5 or 6 mins to flash the Engine and same again for the gearbox

No idea how to make it pop and band but launch control is MENTAL and i am only at stage 2 at the moment.

Great fun. Cant wailt till i get stage 4.25, gathering the parts now:)

Very cool feature, as you flash it the revcounter goes up as well, when it hits 7k its done. I flash cars for fun in my spare time very boring, the rev counter thing is cool and passes the time

Doesn't V4 ecuTEK use this method via coolant & CC button?

Also, what are the TCM maps?

Its all explained very clearly on Litchfield website.. All the features are listed..

Litchfield Version 4 Racerom Remaps - Litchfield Motors

The new TCM maps basically gives you better response when transmission is set to R mode or what litchfield call 'Super R mode'

"With EcuTek defining more of the Transmission maps we are now able to make changes to the settings to allow quicker gear changes and acceleration when in R-Mode. We have also changed the automatic shift points to aid a smoother town driving experience. Previously the GTR would be very quick to change up into higher gears (for emissions reasons) which could make the engine feel laboured at low revs."

i can confirm that statement, feels weird at the moment I am so used to it changing up the gears immediately, now it holds onto them a good bit longer

Thankyou think I will be getting this done:)

Does rolling launch work well?
also they said I can get pops and bangs fitted? is this just a rich overrun?

cheers
Rolling launch is a blast.
Pops and bangs just puts a bit more fuel in on the overrun.

Enable the map with pops and bangs feature rev to about 5 - 6k and then feather the throttle slightly on overrun to release flames. Works best in 2nd 3rd and 4th gears.

Only problem is the car runs a bit lumpy in this mode and that's why they normally add it to a user selectable map.

I've been wanting to get mine updated since Ian announced it.
Problem is I never seem to have the time to go down there to get it done.

I don't suppose there's anyone in or around Northampton that will give me a lend of their cable so I can load the map on and send Ian the trace and load the tweaked map back on?
