News: Haltech Unlocks New Features On Their Elite Series ECU’s

Haltech recently announced that they have updated new features on their single connector Elite ECUs:  550, 750 and 950 which now gives users the option of re-assigning unused injector and ignition outputs as well as integrated closed loop boost control, launch control and flat shift functionality among other features.

Whilst saying the above they haven’t forgotten to add something, that has been a long overdue need to their entire Elite series ECU’s which includes their Elite 1000, 1500, 2000 and 2500 ECU’s. That something you might be wondering is Water Injection.

However, in order to make use of these updates (ESP Firmware v2.37) you will first need to update to the latest version of the Haltech ESP software – v.2.45.0 which can be downloaded off their website or through the “ESP Online” portal if you’ve already got a previous version of ESP on your laptop.

The Pistontorque 2020 Exclusive Performance Car Meetup

2020 has been a challenging year for us all, especially those in the car community with lockdown and many taking a hit on their income, work, etc. Something that always arose is the unity amongst those in the car community during the pandemic which saw one looking out for the other in large and small ways.

Once the situation in the country improved we thought it was time to organize a meet up for those in the community, with the goal of lifting their spirits and helping them refocus on their long time passion, business, or whatever you would like to call it that involves – Cars. 
We made sure that we had a variation of cars where everyone was treated equally without any differentiation by their cars (Cars from the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s & the 2000s) basically if your car was tastefully done, you would eventually make it on the list. 

Within a month, we were able to lock in Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo, who came on board as our venue partner and we were able to make an exclusive call out to those in the community – which was accepted with wide open arms! We then went on to make a little teaser starting with our first lineup of videos – Cars of Sri Lanka which certainly made the invitees even more hyped for the meet on the 20th of Sept.

Fast forward to 20th Sept morning at the Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo, the distinctive sound of Boxer engine is heard in the distance..
