EMS400 – Engine Management

$USD 310.0

SKU: EMS400 Category:


Standalone engine management system based on Megasquirt MS3x processor and firmware with enhanced inputs and output ports in aluminum sealed enclosure and sealed automotive grade connector. It is capable of controlling sequential injection on engines up to 4 cylinders, or semi-sequential up to 8 cylinders, combined with direct fire ignition for engines up to 4 cylinders (active or passive coils) or wasted spark ignition on engines up to 8 cylinders (active only coils). Can be connected as a fully standalone ECU or as piggyback and share the sensor reading with the stock ECU as it has differential trigger inputs, The 4 bar internal MAP sensor can read up to 44psi of boost,  5V ref voltage, and software switches to pull up resistors.  It has dedicated inputs (Crank, CLT, IAT, MAP, TPS and O2), 1 programabble knocking input. 10 low side outputs to drive injectors or any solenoid valve, 4 of them can be used to drive stepper motor idle. 4 dedicated ignition outputs and to drive both active and passive coils, unused ignition output can be used as auxiliary output to drive any solenoid. 5 digital/frequency. 4 analog/digital inputs. It comes with a mating connector and terminals. CAN bus connectivity, SD card slot and Real Time Clock (RTC) with backup battery for data logging. USB as main connectivity and USB or WiFi for monitoring. BluetoothWifi name and pin are configurable.


  • 2x programmable differential trigger inputs (HallVR).
  • 10x high impedance low side output  3A each to drive injectors or to be used for auxiliary outputs.
  • 4 auxiliary output can be used to drive stepper motor idle.
  • 4x ignition output generates high current to drive passive coils directly or generates 5V to drive active coils.
  • 4x inputs can be used as analog or digital (switch) input.
  • 5x digital inputs to be used for switching or to read frequency.
  • 4x dedicated analog input, coolant temperature, Intake air temperature,  O2 sensor, Throttle position.
  • 1x programmble knocking input.

About the author


  1. I reccomend this ECU, had it up and running on a turbo miata in a day and havent had any issues. Also the seller has been very helpful. Thank you and i will defenetly order more.
    Best wishes.

  2. Hello
    does the knock sensor need an external knock module or can the knock sensor be connected directly to the ecu?

    Regards Edwin

    1. Yes, it has internal programmable knocking module. and you can connect the knock sensor directly to the ECU.
