  • ECUMaster DET3 on VG33E

    Anybody ever use a DET3 on a VG engine? I have this old piggyback device laying around from an unsuccessful installation on my Toyota MR2 Turbo, and I was thinking about trying to connect it to my Nissan Xterra. I'm really only interested in controlling timing advance right now, for some experiments with the knock sensor output.

    some background: link has manuals:

    The DIGITAL ECU TUNER 3 is a very popular piggyback tuning device across Europe. The DET3 is probably the most capable piggyback tuning device for its size. The DET3 is incredibly versatile, user friendly and powerful.


    For most applications, the DET3 allows for the removal of an airflow meter, can drive up to 4 injectors in batch fire and Ignition timing can be adjusted via 16?16 tables. The parametric output channels can be configured to control boost with the use of a boost control solenoid, nitrous activation, water or methanol injection control, etc. Launch control and map switching are also among the advanced features available to the end user. In “Fuel Implant” mode, the DET3 operates much like a standalone ECU, calculating fuel requirements based on RPM, IAT, CLT, TPS and even O2 feedback.
    The key features

    • Easy to install and tune
    • Fuel Implant operation mode (fueling standalone)
    • Built in 250kPa or 400kPa MAP sensor
    • Works with gasoline and common rail diesel engines
    • Client software compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10
