If that sounds like more than you want to take on, the aftermarket is ripe with offerings to put an LS under your hood. C6 (and 06-09 Ford Fusion fan that uses the same Siemens controller) uses PWM Electric at 128Hz. It also contains max and launch rev limiters. A Fan Controller requires a PWM to act on. Computers are constantly evolving, and the computer in your car is no different. (Note no reluctor teeth since the camshaft position sensor is at the back of the block). It's not just a dumb motor like most fans. There are two things that you need to ask yourself, and finding the right ECU for your application hinges upon answering these two questions properly. There are six preprogrammed timing tables that are changable with a rotary selector switch for easy timing changes. This made perfect sense, since those ECUs were already designed to make use of new technologies used on the Gen III engines. This feature can be highly beneficial when chasing down an issue or doing some fine tuning. The PWM Fan Controller Module can control up to two fans, supporting up to a maximum of 65 amps. The user-tunable FAST XFI 2.0 controller carries all of the usual functions for LS operation as well as fuel pump and cooling fan controls. The module has data acquisition, and is nitrous and boost compatible. Remain Cool. The ICM causes the ignition coil to fire based on IC circuit signal pulses. Pretty good chance this will destroy the fan motor. Connecting to e67 Ecu for ac fan control on a LS Swap I have installed a LS3 crate engine with a Vintage Air and a T56 Magnum transmission in a 67 Firebird.The engine controller is an E67 ECM. Some folks still want to run a carburetor on an LS-based engine, and the aftermarket has you covered. With the numbers of engines available as take-outs, and aftermarket options increasing daily, it’s becoming much easier to enjoy all the benefits that a late-model engine brings to the under-hood area of your ride. When a temperature is selected in the list box, the relevant configuration parameters appear on the left side. Mounting an Affordable LS Engine Swap Radiator Fan Assembly. OEM and aftermarket ECUs both have provisions for driving electric fuel pumps. The corvette is a large single and the Volt is dual 12" fans. You see, while the Gen  III, Gen IV, and even the Gen V engines may look similar when torn down to their base materials, there are some differences that you’ll need to know before you can make any computer work properly with them. Knowing What You Have The LS fan has a built-in soft start and, I believe, self check which will probably not respond well to the ground switching. Since the position of the camshaft dictates this timing, a camshaft position sensor is used to share this information with the ECU. Whereas the lack of a distributor and an Octuplet of coils mounted on the valve covers originally made many enthusiasts scratch their heads, time has shown that the early adopters were right, and there are benefits to be had in this new engine configuration. Also included is an easy-to-follow wiring diagram. The Gen IV engines have the sensor in the front cover, reading the front of the camshaft gear. Next is a three-bolt 1X camshaft gear from a 2005 LS2 Corvette or 2005-2006 LS2 GTO/SSR/Trailblazer. If you’re looking at modifying an earlier version (Gen III or Gen IV), then the aftermarket is lining up, waiting to speak with you. It has a lot to offer! PWM FAN CONTROLER with AC PRESSURE MONITORING The module is a standalone option for controling a chrysler style PWM fan knows as a pentastar fan. The info is mostly about using a stock ECU to run fans PWM, but some of the info is applicable to using the Holley. Andy has been intrigued by mechanical things all of his life and enjoys tinkering with cars of all makes and ages. Product Details The Lingenfelter VSFM-002 is designed to provide the PWM speed control signal needed to operate variable speed OEM and aftermarket DC brushless cooling fans and fluid circulation pumps. Another major player in the LS controller arena, Holley offers several EFI controllers for LS applications. C7 brushless fan uses the PWM EV setting at 100Hz, per a stock tune from the HPT repository. The LS engine as we currently know it, was introduced more than twenty-years ago. The engine is swapped into a 2001 Chevrolet S10. While the various offerings are great for enthusiasts, knowing which one is best for you requires some research. Your vintage car can also benefit from their design. This unit is configured for automatic variable fan speed operation. Dave Emanuel helped us understand some of the differences between various production years and what to look for if shopping for an OEM computer for your LS swap. Your LS will need a harness, even if you choose to use a carburetor. The Dominator and HP are both user-tunable. Make sure your harness has all the capability that you’re wanting from your engine. Finding value in style points, he can appreciate cars of all power and performance levels. The PWM works on what Derale calls slow start technology, in which the current that goes to the fan motors is not a blast of current, rather it arrives in a controlled manner from the PWM. Besides sensor location, the number of bolts that hold the cam gear in place changed over the years. This unit will read the engine coolant temp and AC pressure info from the vehicle CAN BUS. The final value applied to the controlled PWM depends on the selected method: either MAX of speeds or SUM of speeds. The Dominator ECU has more input and outputs, and allows control of an E-transmission whereas the HP does not. Comparing wire schematics between an LS-series engine and Vortec V-6 or Vortec V-8 engine reveals that the same IC circuit controlling ignition coil 1 on the LS-series engines is used to control the ignition control module (ICM) of the Vortec V-6 and Gen I small-block Vortec V-8 engines. If you need to control an E-transmission, you can also link the XFI 2.0 to the optional FAST EZ TCU controller. Their HP series is tunable via laptop, and like their Dominator ECU, carries a broad range of options to suit even the most hardcore power junkie. Sure, it had 345 horsepower – more than its predecessors – but being drawn from a clean sheet of paper, there was little besides its bore centers and the term “small-block” that linked it to previous powerplants. Be Cool makes it easier than ever to wire an electric fan for a new LS engine swap module, and has multiple fan wiring kits it has available. See all 14 photos . They can be ordered through Grainger (PN 4ZU28) and install easily. 4-pin PWM version for automatic speed control via 4-pin PWM fan headers, 1200rpm maximum speed edition with attractive all-black design and swappable red, black, white, blue, yellow and green anti-vibration pads for colour-customising › See more product details If you don’t have some kind of speed control your fan will be running max speed every time your AC compressor kicks on. Many aftermarket harnesses come with relays and fuse boxes. E38 and E67 controllers are similar, although the E38 has two harness connectors and the E67 has three. Corvettes use a single fan output from the ECM (C1 pin 58) - which is transmitted via PWM to a Fan Control Module - which then controls the speed of a single electric fan. Build your own custom newsletter with the content you love from Chevy Hardcore, directly to your inbox, absolutely FREE! Turning off VATS (Vehicle Anti-Theft System) is basically a requirement with a swap, because the new vehicle probably doesn’t have the matching hardware. Running drive-by-wire? Fuel Air Spark Technology also offers controllers for LS swaps. Both are rated at 600 watts. Here are a few aftermarket options you’ll want to consider. Since the piston has two TDC events – but only one firing event per cycle – the ECU needs to know where the engine is in this cycle. Also, you’ll likely need to turn off any rear oxygen sensor and catalyst efficiency codes depending on the vehicle’s configuration. We did some scouring to find differing ways to make your LS run. Horsepower has increased to 650 ponies in factory trim, and the sky is the limit if you’re looking to build your own. They are available for Edelbrock and Holley carburetors. Knowing the configuration you have, is key to getting your engine up and running properly, no matter what computer you use. Chevy Hardcore NEWSLETTER - SIGN UP FREE! Images: Yeah, I do not expect the Gen 2 LS fan and a PWM power controller like the autocool to work well together. Fan Controllers. I have a C6 Corvette fan & fan controller (solid state relay) that will be connected to the Dominator. In their own words, “This is the ultimate “bare bones” Plug-and-Play package for those who only need to control fuel and timing.” They also offer their MS3 LSX Plug-and-Play Gold Box. The wiring harness was made by Speartech. We will safeguard your e-mail and only send content you request. It’s easier to purchase the right harness than to remove it and update it. Might work just fine. This eliminates the problems that are often associated with an OE harness that may not have been “gently” removed from the host vehicle. Jeff Smith Editor. The speed can be controlled based on a temperature sensor input signal or a simple switched input for on/off type control. With Gen IV engines, which have 58-tooth reluctors, it’s best to stick with the same type of controller as used originally, either E40, E38, E67, E78 or E92. Many GM trucks equipped with a Gen III PCM use a mechanical fan. I removed the stock S10 ECM that ran the original V6. Changes are rampant throughout the Gen III and Gen IV production runs. Speed Density or MAF? If you’re looking for plug and play, EFI Source has a controller using their MicroSquirt ECU. C7 Corvette 600w fan with integrated pwm controller 2008 Ford Fusion fan and pwm controller Could not find the exact size/dimensions of these fans so noted the radiator dimensions. DC Motor LS FET Driver (LIN/PWM Interface) | E523.03, E523.04, E523.13, E523.14 (*SBC) Description This IC is developed for automotive applications to control one NMOS – … … Trucks use a two electric fan, 3 relay setup. We'll send you the most interesting Chevy Hardcore articles, news, car features, and videos every week. You will need a PWM signal, but both fans have the PWM controller built in. The caveat here is that through 2002, both cable and electronic throttle control was available, so the PCM has to be properly configured to match the throttle type. I have found a lot of information on other ECM’s but not much on the crate motor ECM. Knowing what you want from the beginning could make the difference between satisfaction, or re-doing parts of the project as your search for horsepower continues. When they first came out in the new-at-the-time C5-generation Corvette, they were a totally new design, and not many folks outside of Chevrolet knew what to make of it. Since the LS engines came with both “return” (pre-’99) and “returnless” (’99-present) fuel systems, and depending on what type you are using, you’ll need to have a means of properly controlling the pump for each system, whether constant powered or Pulse-Width-Modulated (PWM). The basic test for duty cycle is with an oscilloscope, which you can connect to the powertrain computer input at the module on the fan assembly or, as Toyota recommends for the LS 460, to the equivalent connector on the front controller (terminal labeled FAN 1 with wire to terminal S1 on the Fan Control ECU). It can be installed on both 24x and 58x crankshaft trigger engines, and features several ignition features. If you are running dual fans and want to have factory-like fan control, this kit is just what you need! In GM LS applications GM used three relays to control your fans in series to enable the fans to work together. Early LS1 intakes have the bosses but didn’t have the M6-1.0 threaded inserts necessary to bolt the throttle bracket to the intake. Most LS-based engines are drive by wire, but if you are looking to run a throttle cable, Lokar has a handy bracket (PN TCB-40LS1). All rights reserved. It includes a FAST XFI 2.0 system, an XIM Ignition Module, and all necessary plug-and-play wiring. There are a lot of options! Why Do We Measure Engines Against The Power Of Horses? It works with one or two fans, but instead of switching one fan on later than the other, the PWM Module adjusts the fan speed on one or both fans by reducing voltage to the fan motor. I have tried every controller on the market and I have since gone back to using two relays for the two speed fans and one for the single speed versions. The LS platform does not have provision for a mechanical fuel pump, so you’ll need a way to control the amount of fuel your engine receives from the tank. If you’re using a carburetor with an electronic transmission like a 4L60E or 4L80E, Baumann Electronic Controls offers a throttle position sensor (TPS) that allows your transmission to know your intentions. Early homemade fan controllers used a simple “volt mod” by choosing 5, 7 or 12V from a classic molex connector. I prefer to use Holley EFI and program the PWM output for the fans. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE NEW CONTROLLER INSTALLATION. We promise not to use your email address for anything but exclusive updates from the Power Automedia Network. If you’ve already made the switch to LS power, feel free to let us know in the comments below! The factory Lincolns used two speeds-one was a PWM built into the factory ECM, and the high speed was triggered via a 60 amp relay in the main fuse panel underhood of that Mark VIII. FAST offers their XFI 2.0 system (user tunable) or their EZ-EFI (self-tuning) system for those who want more plug and play. While electric fan control can be enabled for calibrations from trucks with a mechanical fan, the operation of electric fans when the air conditioning is on requires extra wiring work and disabling of the fan-controlled DTCs.
