Venom 400 Control Module

Postby jotcrx » January 19th, 2013, 4:22 pm

Venom 400 control module - not sure if they even make these anymore. It does work really well by "tricking" the engine that there is more load on the engine than there actuall may be to get to the OEM fuel and timing curves for more agressive driving. Works best at midrange RPMs, around 3000....

12v+
Ground
TPS
MAP

Here is the wiring manual...http://www.venom-performance.com/manual/Venom_400_User's_Manual.pdf

I just tapped the wires right next to the connector going into the ECU as it was easier to get to all four wires I needed and I had room to mount the control module next to the ECU under the seat.

Fortunately for me I had a friend who worked at Venom and got me all of my Venom stuff for gratis, hence all of the Venom products on my Teg. This was back in the day when manufacturers would sponsor you before the economy tanked :)

when activated, this simulates that the engine is on a higher load that it actually is and there for the ECU uses a different fuel map?

Couldnt you DIY something to modify the map and tps sensors?

Seems to sound like the power/econ switch that I've seen in a few older Mazda's. Those switches seemed to adjust the readings from the MAP and TPS sensors with what looked to be a few resistors (either adding to or subtracting, I didn't bother to do a full trace on the circuit), tricking the ECU into squirting more fuel (and adjusting the timing more then likely).

Not saying that the Venom module is anything like that however (don't have one and haven't seen the innards to be sure of how it's actually doing what it does). I'd be sure that the guys who put the R&D into the module however did figure out the proper way to do it.
Knowledge gets accumulated like resins in bongs.
