i'm thinking of making an valve in one of my exhaust pipes.

can the minilink ecu (link ecu - extreme) controle a valve ? 12v on a output ?

kind regards,

Rens

The Minilink has lowside drives only (ECU grounds the pin).

Oke, then I’ll controle it directly with a dual switch, ( high/low boost )

in low boost the valve is closed

high boost its open.

think I can tune it correctly then

Thought I had replied?

Easiest thing may be to use a simple relay - (fused) feed to the solinoid and earth it through the ECU.

If you use a 5 terminal relay (they have a normally open or normally closed output option), it will give the option of selecting whether you want the ECU to open, or close it, when switched.

Thanks, think this is a better setup, so i can open de valve if its building boost (even in low boost map)

my idea is, Low boost ,valve closed till 150 kpa map, after open.

High boost always open.

Thanks
