CONTROL FREAKS REJOICE
So far, this story has been big-picture stuff about the GEN4’s tremendous potential. While much of this has been carried over from the GEN3, you now have even more control with more speed. Let’s talk spark timing, fuel, and lambda tables with individual corrections for each cylinder. Individual cylinder fuel and spark tables can be based on a combination of speed and load, as opposed to just rpm. Each of these eight tables can be as large as 24x24. That resolution offers greater finite control, which is why this system is so powerful.
The GEN4 also offers five pulse-width modulated (PWM) control outputs. These can be used to control nitrous solenoids or lockup on a multi-disc torque converter. For the converter, you could specify how many times the converter locks up. In other words, you can specify up to three separate converter lockups per pass down the track, if that’s what’s necessary. For cars with big power and small tires, that will keep the tires from spinning on the gear change. This is just one feature out of dozens that are incorporated into the GEN4.
