hi steven,
the engine management system i'm using is a combination of a "DTA S100 PRO" and my own controller unit. As the DTA S100 is only capable of controling the basic functions of the engine (e.g. fuel, spark, ) but has some nice features which make sense using like traction control, lambda target mapping, launch control, switchable maps, ease of programming and it is priced very reasonable among the very few ECUs which can deal with a odd fire V10.

As the BMW V10 is a very complex engine, there are functions to control, which will lead beyond the capabilities of the S100.
For controlling them, i have developed my own controller unit to address functions like lambda sampling, EGT sampling, ion sensing ignition, 'fly by wire' setup, g-force controlled el. oil pumps, CAN communications......

BTW, how is your project going on?

very challenging, I am eager to see the end result and hear your comments about the progress. I have a S80 on a modified LS7 running on MAP with a mechanical throttle.

Be patient! The flames are yet to come!!! furiousfuriousfurious

Just imagine, this engine in an ultima, with ultra low restriction exhaust system, roughly 1m long biggrin,
compared to a system under a saloon car with pre-cats, post-cats and lots of mufflers...and approx. 4 to 5m long.

Herzlich willkommen Florian,

ask, ask, ask, I´m sure you will find help here.
Or have a look at other builds.

The first engine I tried to use was from an E38 (740i), now an LS7.

I am located in Rheinland-Pfalz, near Mannheim / Ludwigshafen.

Michael
