KNOB ADJUSTMENT SETTINGS
After removing the cover of the Brucato ACU, you will see five knobs which have an adjustment range of -15% counter-clockwise and +15% clockwise.
The pointer location of the Phillips head is denoted by the slot with half circles on either side. (Shown straight up in the first image below - 0%).
Each of the graduations on the body of the potentiometer represents approximately 4% adjustment, however, adjustments as small as 1% may be made. Negative adjustments are counter-clockwise and positive adjustments are clockwise, as shown below.
MAIN - controls entire fuel delivery. Increase or decrease fuel delivery across the board at all RPMs and throttle positions. Can be adjusted +/- 15% in increments as small as 1%.
ACCELERATION-COMPENSATION - during an increase in throttle opening, the engine immediately requires more fuel than normal fuel delivery at that RPM. To compensate, the Brucato ACU has a Virtual Accelerator pump function for optimum acceleration.
SENSITIVITY - adjusts the threshold of throttle movement required to activate the Acceleration-Comp function.
VOLUME - adjusts the amount of extra fuel required to have a seamless transition of RPM.
PART THROTTLE - adjusts fuel delivery +/- 15% at less than full throttle in the range of 1,800 RPM - 7,500 RPM with no affect at wide open throttle.
IDLE - adjusts fuel delivery +/- 15% at less than full throttle in the range of 0 RPM - 1,800 RPM with no affect at mid-range or wide open throttle.
