Car enthusiasts enjoy modifying their engines to boost performance, including the addition of a standalone fuel management system. By harnessing the control of how much fuel is used during functioning, this provides the driver with more performance options than standard fuel systems.
A standalone fuel management system is an aftermarket computer module that replaces the on-board engine control unit (ECU). Unlike the non-programmable ECU, the standalone module allows a user to change how the engine parameters function.
A user connects the standalone device to their computer through either an universal serial bus (USB) or through wireless capabilities. The standalone device will then walk the person through its parameters, allowing changes to be made based on the user's desires.
The standalone device is placed in the engine for overall control during driving. If the driver wants to change a setting, they can easily attach it to the computer again for editing.
