    Ford / Mazda VCT control. Emerald K6?

    Hi All,

    Finally have the Ford Duratec i4 2.5 fitted in the Lotus (elise/exige)

    idles perfectly but needs to go to the dyno and currently the vct is setup with and on and off at certain rpm. (Vtec option in Emerald K3)
    I want full PWM control as it seems the solenoid cannot handle on/off well and it costs hp/torque.

    Seperate vvt/vct controller from motorsport electronics is no longer available so first idea is to upgrade to an Emerald K6. Seems to be controlling it through PWM.

    how are people controlling it? What kind of controls? Ecu?
