The DTA S40i ignition-only ECU gives the best of both worlds for the high performance A-Series engine - a programmable distributorless ignition system that retains the simplicity of fuelling with carburettors. It will offer improved power and drivability once correctly mapped on a rolling road or dyno, for race or road applications.
We've teamed up with DTA to bring you a Mini-specific professional wiring loom to make installation simple. The loom comes with connections for the following:
- Crank position sensor
- Coil pack
- MAP sensor
- Throttle Position Sensor
- Fused 12-volt ignition
- Shift light
The loom has been designed to fit the coil pack up on a Mini bulkhead, to plug straight into our Magneti Marelli-equipped crank position sensor kits and for the ECU to fit around the dashboard area. We would not recommend installing the ECU within the engine bay.
See the extra tabs for more info, wiring diagrams and downloads. For a complete installation setup, we also offer the MED Ignition Management Kit.
For owners of other A-Series powered cars we can supply alternative wiring looms - please contact us to special order.

Flexible Tacho Output Soft and hard rev limits
Main Ignition Functions
Air, coolant and manifold pressure compensation maps.
RPM and load breakpoints can be calibrated by the user.
Throttle or MAP as load.
All maps with one or two dimensional with interpolation as required.
Turbo Control Functions
Open or closed loop turbo pressure control via PWM valve.
Modify target turbo pressure by gear selected.
Modify target turbo pressure by vehicle speed.
Active base PWM map for easy calibration.
Three uncommitted input tables which use 0 - 5 volt inputs or any input the S40 knows already, linked to fuel and advance modifiers and a PWM output.
Voltage Compensation Tables
User configurable voltage compensation tables for coil on time (dwell time).
Diagnostics and Test Features
Full sensor diagnostics and fault recording.
Extensive engine run time recording at different load and speed conditions.
Ability to exercise coils without engine running for fault finding.
The ECU firmware is flash upgradeable via the serial port with a special cable and software.
Current firmware and software published on www.dtafast.co.uk.
CAN PC Communications
The ECU can communicate with the PC via our USB -> CAN converter. This solves the problem of unreliable USB -> RS232 converters.
