ME221 Standalone Fuel Injection ECU, Ford ST170 Plug and Play Pack


Designed for fully sequential control of four cylinder engines, as well as forming an integral core to the range of ME221 based PnP ECUs, it’s a feature packed ECU, in a compact, reliable and affordable form factor.
With support for a range of OEM sensors and trigger patterns, as well as being versatile enough to offer flexibility where it’s needed – including often ‘expensive’ features such as Fully Sequential fuel control, Flex-Fuel, Closed Loop Boost & VVT as well as Windowed DSP Knock Control and core features such as programmable inputs, custom tune-able sensor tables and full 3D mapping, the ME221 really blurs the line between lower priced and higher featured engine management systems.
Essentially any port injection, four Cylinder engine, either turbocharged or normally aspirated can be ran semi or fully sequential with an array of Motorsport features to boot, all powered by the ME221 ECU.
This package includes the ME221 ECU, ST170 Plug-n-Play Loom, RS232 Tuning Cable & Quick Start Sheet.
The ME221 ST170 loom is complete with the stock ST170 Cam & Crank sensor, Throttle Sensor, Coil-pack and VVT solenoid connections. MAP, Intake Air and Coolant connections are a Bosch 2-pin mini-timer type.
This system will give precise, closed loop control of your ST170’s VVT system – gains of over 40 ft/lbs have been shown when using closed loop VVT as opposed to locking the cam.
Note that as with all after-market engine management systems, basemaps are offered ‘as-is’, and dyno tuning is recommended to avoid damaging your engine. We have full engine dyno and rolling road facilities on site as well as an ever growing list of tuners across the UK, Europe and Worldwide – see our Tuning Partners for your nearest approved agent.

Auxiliary flying wires for spare outputs, tachometer, knock and O2/Lambda.


Loom details can be found in this document.



What is in the box:

1 x Standalone ME221 Engine Control Unit (ECU)

1 x ST170 Loom (supplied as standard with 2 pin mini timer injector connectors to suit standard Zetec, please see our other listings for motorcycle injector connectors) Loom details can be found in this document.

1 x RS232 Communications Cable

1 x Quick Start Guide


Options


Coolant and air temperature sensors. The ME221 and MEITE software do offer the ability to calibrate the ECU to read any sensor, however by using the sensors on offer in this listing the standard calibration tables can be used - vastly simplifying the set-up process and saving considerable time. Both sensors are M12 x 1.5 thread. The additional coolant temperature sensor housing offers a quick and convenient method for installing directly into a radiator top hose and negates the need for tapping out existing holes in your cylinder head.

Crank Sensor. The ME221 ECU will work with the standard Zetec crank sensor. This sensor is therefore offered as a direct replacement and only required if you are unsure of your existing sensors condition or reliability. 

Data Cable (FTDI USB-Serial Adaptor). Whilst the ECU comes with an RS232 cable many modern Laptops do not have such a connection. Therefore this adaptor will allow a USB port to be used for connectivity. This genuine FTDI cable is guaranteed to work with this ECU, unlike many cheaper alternatives that often suffer connectivity issues.


Basemaps


ALL ME221 and ME442 ECU's are shipped with a test map only. This is highly unlikely to run your engine and if it does it will not run it very well! A library of basemaps can be found here on the Motorsport Electronics Support Pages as well as a full suite of installation manuals. danST Engineering can also provide basemaps for a variety of engines developed on our in-house rolling road.


Coil Pack Compatibility


This ECU is intended for use with wasted spark Ford coil packs. Other wasted spark coil packs may be compatible however please contact us before attempting to use alternatives to avoid potential damage to the ECU. The fitment of a Ford coil pack (available in our shop) will guarantee compatibility and reliability.


Note: As with all after-market engine management systems (ECU’s) a dyno tuning is recommended to avoid damaging your engine and to get the most out of your engine. A full range of basemaps are available online from danST engineering or Motorsport Electronics
