HKS USA, Inc. releases the newest version of its engine management system, the F-CON V Pro version 3.3. The new F-CON V Pro hardware and Power Writer software have been upgraded to offer improved functionality and features over the previous generations.
The HKS F-CON V Pro is a full featured standalone engine management system that connects easily to the factory Engine Control Unit as a “piggy-back” fuel and timing controller. As modifications to a vehicle are made, the need for fuel and timing adjustments becomes critical for performance and safety. With up to 4 selectable trim maps for different fuel octane ratings, the F-CON V Pro with its 32×32 resolution for both fuel and timing maps is the optimal solution.
The F-CON V Pro can control up to eight injectors with D Jetro or L Jetro setups. Injectors can be set to fire as batch, sequential or staged. The F-CON V Pro can also be utilized in “drive by wire” vehicles. Programming is done via the HKS Power Writer software; which only Certified HKS Pro Dealers have access to.
The HKS Power Writer software for the F-CON V Pro has some very unique abilities to simplify setup and tuning. The F-CON V Pro utilizes A/F Feedback control; where a target A/F value can be input and the F-CON V Pro will adjust fuel automatically.
Full data logging capabilities are also built into the F-CON V Pro Power Writer software allowing all major vehicle conditions; speed, rpm, water temperature, intake temperature, timing, boost, injector duty cycle, etc. to be logged onto the HKS Pro Dealer’s computer.
