Petrol Engine Management

The SC Typhoon Engine Managament System is developed entirely by SC at our UK base. Typhoon delivers the performance and quality of premium engine management systems at a very competitive price.

Extreme Performance

Typhoon is the most powerful ECU in its price bracket; in fact it competes directly with ECUs that cost more than three times as much.

Compare these features:

  • 32 Bit Microprocessor with 1Mb memory
  • Industry standard CANbus communications with Dashboards and Dataloggers
  • Bespoke SC micro USB-CAN dongle interface and Windows software
  • 32 x 32 Fuel and Ignition Maps with user programmable breakpoints
  • 1uS and 0.25deg Ignition Resolution
  • Wideband and Narrowband Lambda Control
  • Closed Loop Turbo Boost Control
  • Up to 12 Injectors and 8 Ignition Coils
  • Fully Sequential Fuel and Ignition Control
  • Variable Camshaft Timing Control
  • Powershift Capability
  • Automatic internal Barometric Pressure Compensation
  • Full Environmental Fuel and Ignition Corrections
  • Suitable for Engine Bay Mounting with sealed 35-way connector


High Speed Communications

As with the ECU software, our PC tuning software is written in-house at SC. It is user friendly and powerful with high speed communications to the Typhoon ECU via our bespoke USB CANbus dongle. This is the smallest USB-CAN interface on the market and provides robust, fast data transfer even in noisy environments.

Future Proof

We are constantly developing the ECU software to add new features. New hardware upgrades include a Bluetooth communications module and an injector driver module for gasoline direct injection (known as GDI or FSI) engines.

For additional functionality we also offer the SC Tornado engine management system which adds features such as drive by wire throttle control, traction control and sequential injection for 8 cylinder engines. Please enquire for further details.
