What do we do different?
Supermarine Aircraft has spent the last five years developing the V6 and now the V8, both have been test flown by our CEO Mike O’Sullivan. We have done thousands of hours in the air and on dyno rigs for fine tuning  and testing.  The Motec ECU works in Real Time this means that it is reading sensors on the engine to work out timing and air fuel ratio to give peak performance and maximum engine life.  This eliminates the pilots need to lean or enrich the fuel mixture as it is always at its optimal mixture.   The ECU also has pre-programmed map as a redundancy system or limp home mode.  All engines are run in the factory before shipping and data logged this also means that we can carry out diagnostics on engines with a laptop computer.
