If you’re looking for a quick and easy plug-in solution to go with your Elite ECU then Plug’n’Play Adaptors are your best option. Plug’n’Play Adaptor Harnesses allow you to use Haltech’s universal Elite ECUs by connecting them directly to the factory harness in your car via a Plug’n’Play adaptor. This is an ideal solution for builders and tuners who
want a quick and easy install without the need to rewire.

The Plug’n’Play Adaptor Harness comes complete with an adaptor box which has factory ECU connector on one side and the Haltech mating connectors on the other. The Adaptor Harness connects the Adaptor Box to an Elite ECU on one side and your car’s factory ECU harness on the other. 

Once the Haltech ECU is connected, launch the Nexus Software Programmer (NSP) and load your base map from the Haltech base map library. The base map will be sufficient to get your car going and give you a great starting point for further tuning.

This simple Haltech Plug'n'Play allows you to be up and running in just a few hours. The quick start guide will walk you through installation of the Haltech Plug'n'Play adaptor into your vehicle. The full ECU manual and software are located on the CD or USB key provided with the ECU for you to refer to while completing your installation and configuration.

ECU Features

  • Drive by Wire Throttle Control (DBW).
  • Low Impedance Injector control with programmable injector peak and hold currents and programmable peak time.
  • Flex fuel support (Direct sensor input). Tune your engine's boost, fuel and ignition by ethanol content.
  • Flexible tuning setup for Petrol (Gasoline), Methanol and Ethanol.
  • Closed Loop 02 Control. Dual bank control for precise tuning (with optional external CAN O2 Wideband Controller Kit).
  • Knock Control. Synchronised to engine position with high speed digital filtering for accurate detection.
  • Variable cam control - Independently control up to 4 camshafts.
  • Closed Loop Idle Speed Control with learning for consistent idle stability.
  • Long term learning (auto tune) on fuel, ignition, cam, boost and idle control maps (up to 4D).
  • On-board data logging. Up to 40 channels of logging at sample rates up to 5ms (200Hz) with 2MB of internal memory.
  • Laptop data logging. DLog all available channels directly to your laptop's hard drive for both tuning and diagnostics.
  • Dual CAN Bus communication for Haltech dashes and expansion devices. Supports OEM CAN and OBDII. View live engine data and set/clear diagnostic trouble codes.
  • 1 - 4 Injection stages with individual injector flow rates per injector.
  • Anti-Lag/Rotational idle for closed course racing, rally, circuit or drift. Build and maintain boost during closed throttle conditions.
  • Rolling Anti-Lag. Lock to your current or pre-set RPM or road speed for roll racing or pit lane limiting.
  • Launch Control. Control your engine's power delivery, RPM and boost for consistent performance at the start line.
  • Traction Control. Control your engine's power output via mappable front vs rear axle or individual wheel speed slip.
