Racing Circuits Kswap ECU
Working together with Racing Circuits we have developed a plug and play ECU based on the amazing Ecutek control system specifically for Kswapped vehicles using the K20Z powerplant and transmission from a 2006-11 Civic Type-R
Programmed using an Ecutek base file created by us with a licence applied means that the ECU is completely custom mappable later at a reduced price and also compatible with our Ecutek Remote Tuning systems.
Available as a complete new ECU supplied and configured or onto a customer supplied ECU at reduced cost the choice is yours. You can also sell the ECU on later and get a large portion of money invested back!
We also have the option to purchase the Bluetooth Connect module synchronised to the ECU directly so that it gives the possibility to change maps, datalog, interrogate error codes and create custom gauges all through your phone or compatible head unit and even port to a tablet to use as a dash!
As well as the addition of the Connect Module we have also added the possibility of adding traction control with the addition of fitting optional wheel speed sensors available separately.
Below are actual screen grabs from the Free Ecutek Bluetooth App with the added features all selectable through the app touch screen.
- Full Menu
- New Map Switch modes
- Custom switch inputs
- Adjustable launch control
- Datalogging live parameters
- Editable custom gauges

Configured for a high flow intake and quality Catback exhaust system the ECU will run fine with everything from a stock car to one with the described modifications and any similar kits. With a raised rev limiter to 8600rpm and vtec lowered to 3800rpm it benefits from a much improved throttle response everywhere and increased midrange power due to the lower vtec and optimised cam advance.
The ECU will be fine running on 95Ron fuel but higher is recommended.
The Traction control system includes a progressive wheel slip strategy utilising both throttle and ignition control that is far superior to the basic stock VSA system that's quite obtrusive
In the last video below it shows the system working on a Turbocharged car where you can hear when the ECU detects wheel slip then is cutting the throttle and ignition to keep the wheels gripping even with the very greasy road.
