We can install, map and configure the ECU and can offer track support for optimisation of launch and traction functions.

Omex technology

For over a decade Omex Technology Systems have been designing, manufacturing and supplying quality electronic units mainly to the fast road, kit car and motorsport markets.  From simple rev limiters to full engine management, Omex can offer a solution to suit any vehicle whether it be ignition control or full engine management.

Northampton Motorsport have been fitting and tuning Omex products for over 10 years and we find the functionality, features and ease of mapping second to none.  We have carried out numerous road and competition car conversions using Omex and the reliability and performance has been fantastic.

The mapping software is intuitive and easy to use which allows most engines to be fully mapped within 3 to 4 hours of dyno time, which saves the customer money in the long run over other cheaper systems that are more fussy to map.  The software can be downloaded along with operation and installation manuals direct from Omex which means that if you are self- installing you can get your engine up and running at home and carry out basic set up yourself.  We do strongly recommend however, that any serious tuning takes place in the controlled environment of the dyno cell to ensure the best results are obtained.

Omex offer a range of engine management kits for current popular engines including

Ford – Zetec, Duratec and Sigma
2Peugeot – MI16
GM / Vauxhall – LS3 single throttle & C20XE

A full range of accessories is also available such as sensors, coil packs shift lights, idle control motors, injectors and throttle bodies. Northampton Motorsport can offer a complete drive in drive out service or we can supply parts and support you if you want to self install.
