This kit is designed as a complete replacement for the factory ECU, utilising existing wiring, sensors and mounting hardware to deliver plug-in convenience with fully programmable control. The M1 ECU is supplied with the firmware preloaded, providing all the functionality of MoTeC's GPR-DI Package with additional features unique to the Honda Civic FK8R.

Along with fuel, ignition, camshaft and turbocharger control, this Package also supports other OE ECU features, including:

  • Push button start
  • Air conditioner control
  • High and low speed fan control
  • Adjustable driving mode
  • Fuel canister purge valve control
  • Engine speed matching (throttle blip) on downshifts
  • Alternator control
  • Reverse lockout
  • Cruise control

The supplied start file contains all the calibrations and settings for the sensors, direct fuel injectors, ignition coils, knock control, throttle servo, camshafts and turbocharger wastegate. It has also been calibrated to match the OE factory fuelling, ignition, camshaft phasing and boost pressures. This saves a significant amount of time as it shortcuts the setup process. Users can begin tuning to their desired power level right away with the assurance of a safe base tune that is equivalent to the original ECU.

Included are many ancillary features commonly found on race cars, such as anti-lag, driver switches (e.g. pit switch, launch enable, boost trim), gearbox control, knock control, intercooler sprays, launch control, coolant pumps and traction control.

The ECU fully integrates with other MoTeC products, and provides pre-defined CAN messaging for all current Display Loggers, Loggers, LTCs, E888, VCS, GPS, ADR, BR2, PDM and SLM.
