Characteristics: Currently available
only through Power Excel Shops, the Power FC replaces the
factory ECU and controls all engine parameters.(Off road use
only, no OBD-II) Installation is as easy as replacing the
factory ECU. (Some minor rewiring is required on select vehicles.)
The factory engine harness does not need to be replaced and
all critical accessories such as air conditioning continue
to function. By using the optional FC COMMANDER, the user
can adjust and modify a wide range of settings. By changing
various parameters and data, the Power FC will adapt to any
of your performance needs.
Since there is no need to upgrade ROM chips
or trade in ECU's, the factory ECU can be kept by the original
user. The Power FC operates off of three Main Menus. These
menus are : Monitor, Setting, and ETC.
In Monitor Mode, the Commander can display
up to 10 parameters of data in real time. Monitor Mode can
Engine RPM Ignition Timing Vehicle Speed Air
Flow Voltage (Pressure Sensor Voltage) Injector Duty Cycle
Boost Knocking Level Battery Voltage Intake Air Temp Water
In addition, there are 4 display patterns
allowing 1-8 parameters to be shown on screen at once. The
data displays in numerical real time values with the option
of a real time 10 second graph display. Peak Hold values and
Display Hold functions only require the touch of a button.
The Map Trace Mode allows Ghost Map Tracing of the Fuel Correction
and Ignition Timing maps. This allows the user to visually
see what point of the map is being used in real time. The
Ghost Map Trace function leaves markers on the used portions
of the map for easy reference.
Setting Mode allows full access to the 20x20
ignition timing and fuel correction maps. The user can adjust
any portion of this map in 5x5 sections. Air flow correction
values can be entered for vehicles upgrading air flow meters.
Injector pulse correction menu is used when upgrading injectors
on the engine. The Acceleration Enrichment Correction function
improves response under hard and sudden acceleration. The
Cranking Fuel Injection menu corrects the amount of fuel when
the engine is being cranked, or when the water temperature
is cold. A separate Water Temp menu allows fuel correction
according to water temperature. The RPM menu allows rev limiter
settings and idle RPM levels. Access menus also vary according
to specialty engines. Rotary engine Power FC's accommodate
leading and trailing ignition maps. Honda engines Power FC's
allow for VTEC control. Complete boost control is possible
by using the optional Boost Control Kit (Not necessary for
vehicles that come factory turbocharged.). Changing data is
easy: just access the desired point on the map or data, and
push the FC COMMANDER keys in the appropriate direction.
The ETC Menu contains utility parameters such
as : version information, LCD screen Brightness, and Initialization
of all Data. In addition, the ETC Mode allows the user to
monitor all factory sensors through one screen. This screen
can tell the user if any sensor is in use or malfunctioning.
The Power FC also comes preprogrammed with
several base maps. (Currently with Japan Domestic Market Vehicle
Maps. Minor initial tuning may be required. Please contact
your authorized Power Excel shop for more information.) This
makes the initial tuning process much quicker. As with all
other fuel controllers, the POWER FC should be tuned on a
dynomometer by a trained professional. A high grade air/ fuel
ratio monitor is also recommended during tuning to ensure
The FC COMMANDER is a hand held controller
designed to allow access to the vital parameters within the
Power FC. The unit allows a wide range of data modification
through its large back lit LCD display. The unit has been
designed so that one finger can control a wide array of data.
Once connected, the Apex logo will appear in the screen taking
the user to the Main Menu. From here, the user can access
the three Main Menus (Monitor, Setting, Etc.) The FC COMMANDER
"communicates" with the Power FC control unit thereby creating
one of the first interactive user friendly fuel management
The Boost Control Kit is an optional kit designed
to control boost through the Power FC. Simple connection to
the Power FC allows the user to access a full self-learning
boost controller. The Power FC allows up to 4 different boost
presets for any stage of driving. The high grade solenoid
valve is the same one used in our Super AVC-R boost controller.
As with the S-AVCR, the Boost control kit allows increased
boost response and boost stability at high RPM's.
