F88 RL


The F88RL ECU is the most cost effective engine management system from the suffix L series. Based on the F88 architecture the RL is by no means a compromise, it just has less inputs and outputs for those applications that don’t require the complexity of the full F88. This twin processor unit uses a high speed RISC processor for code execution and an additional large FPGA for high speed engine position tracking, allowing the scheduling of code to be independent of signal patterns, increasing flexibility, efficiency and accuracy under transient conditions. This powerful combination also allows advanced control algorithms but yet easy to map for the end user.

The F88RL is designed to control most complex engines including, turbocharged, supercharged, drive by wire, twin cam, twin vvt, vtec, gearbox, differential and many more! The unique crank and cam sync logger allow the flexibility of controlling the most awkward trigger patterns capable of running all current known patterns and even future OEM timing wheels.

All of this hardware is packaged within a lightweight CNC billet aluminium case. Designed to be installed in the most harshest of motorsport environments.
