There are many approaches to take when it comes to tuning an engine, and it’s always recommended that you start from the basics before moving on to the major stuff like forged pistons, wild camshafts and turbochargers.
Starting with basic mods such as the intake and exhaust is like building a foundation for a house. The stronger the foundation, the better the house will be able to withstand the elements and the test of time. The same applies when tuning an engine.
By taking care of the basics first, such as the exhaust and the intake, the engine is prepared to take on more major mods in the future, such as wilder camshafts, high compression pistons or even a supercharger.
The S4PH Campro engine in this Satria Neo is full of basic modifications, such as the intake, exhaust, adjustable cam gears, an adjustable fuel pressure regulator, and even a spark amplifier and a Pivot Raizin volt stabilizer.
With all these extra bolt on parts, the stock ECU should be able to cope and adjust its air/fuel ratio parameters accordingly, but standard ECUs are only able to adjust their parameters by only so much. This is where piggyback ECUs are called in to make the necessary adjustments to get the most power.
GReddy’s E-Manage is the piggyback ECU of choice for this Neo, thanks to its affordable price and extensive list of features. This, and its user friendliness, makes the E-Manage great value for money and a popular piggyback ECU amongst tuners and enthusiasts. The E-Manage is also compatible with most car makes and models, including the Satria Neo and its Campro engine.
GReddy’s E-Manage is a cost effective programmable engine management system that allows you to properly tune your factory engine control without having to change the entire factory ECU system to an expensive “stand-alone” unit or the inconvenience of sending it out for a full ECU reprogram.
The E-Manage system is a true universal “piggy-back” type unit that taps into most Japanese factory ECU wiring, by utilizing the vehicle’s existing sensors (or optional upgraded sensors if factory sensors are maxed out). The major benefit is the factory ECU settings become your “Base-MAP” for tuning.
There is no need for extensive tuning for normal driving conditions, but does allow the tuner to fine tune, adjust for injector changes, and add new MAP(s) for situations the factory ECU is not capable of (like on-boost conditions).
The E-Manage fitted to this Satria Neo was installed by JC Racing and tuned by Jackie of JC Racing as well. Before fitting and tuning the E-Manage, the Neo put down 80.65PS and 11.09kg/m of torque.
With the E-Manage and a slight tweaking of the adjustable cam gears, the Neo put down 87.32PS and 12kg/m of torque. For those of you who are too lazy to reach for a calculator, that’s an increase of 6.67PS and 0.91kg/m of torque.
