This section is used for entering basic engine information including engine type, firing order, and capacity.

Engine Information

Engine Capacity

The Displacement of the engine. The units for Displacement are selected in the ESP software under Tools / Options / Units.

Engine Type

The type of engine being used. Select from Piston 4 Stroke, Piston 2 Stroke, and Rotary engines.

Number of Cylinder/Rotors

The number of cylinders or the number of rotors.

Max Cranking RPM

The RPM value below which the engine is considered to be cranking. Above this value the engine is considered to be running.

Vehicle Information


The VIN to be sent via CAN, if connected, and displayed on OBD diagnostic equipment.

Drive Type

The drive type of the vehicle. This setting is for the Traction Control function to know the orientation of the drive wheels. Select from Rear Wheel Drive, Front Wheel Drive, or All Wheel Drive.

Transmission Type

The transmission type of the vehicle. Select from Automatic or Manual Transmission.

Throttle Limits

User Demand Minimum

Below this value of Throttle Position for a cable throttle, or Accelerator Pedal Position for a DBW throttle, the system is considered to be at Closed Throttle. Used by functions such as Idle Control and Decel Cut to know when the throttle has been closed.

User Demand Maximum

Above this value of Throttle Position the engine is considered to be at Full (Wide Open) Throttle. Used by functions such the Flood Clear to know when the throttle is wide open.

Engine Geometry

Odd Fire Engine

Enable this function is your cylinder firing angles are not symmetrical. i.e. they fire at odd (uneven) angles. When enabled the TDC Angle will become available for adjustment. (Default = Disabled)


Enter the Firing Order of the engine here. This is used to determine the sequence in which the injector and ignition outputs will fire. Note that injector and ignition outputs are to be wired in cylinder number. i.e. output number goes to cylinder number.

TDC Angle

Only used when the Odd Fire option is selected. The firing angle of each cylinder is entered into these values so that fuel and ignition events are at the correct time.

Bank Info

If more than one engine bank is being used, each cylinder can be assigned a bank. Used by the O2 Control function when there is an O2 Sensor in each Bank to know which cylinders are controlled by which O2 Sensor. Up to 2 engine banks are supported.
