Wicked Power, Divine Control G5 VOODOO PRO Discover the next generation of engine management – the G5 Voodoo Pro is our most advanced, most powerful, most flexible ECU ever. INTRODUCING...

SUMMON THE POWER

G5 Voodoo Pro puts real magic in your hands and opens a new world of possibilities with the ability to control port plus direct injection, more injector and ignition drives, advanced communications and many more features.

12 Injection, 8 Ignition and 4 multi-purpose (inj, ign, aux) drives (24 total*)

G5 Voodoo Pro can run up to:

  • twelve cylinders or six rotors with sequential injection and direct spark, or
  • eight cylinders with staged injection and direct spark.

Staged injection (where you run two individual injectors per cylinder) is great for applications that require lots of fuel, such as high horsepower Drag Cars, and is becoming more common in other motorsports and street use.

The G5 Voodoo Pro can run staged port injection and direct injection (DI). Having the 24 drives allows you to add supplementary port injectors to a DI engine to supply more fuel to reach your power goals or to prevent carbon deposit build up on your intake valves.

Any left-over drives can be used as auxiliary outputs.
*Requires A, B and E Header Plug for 24 drives

Built-in WiFi, with real-time PC Link connection

Built-in Wi-Fi means you don’t need to be physically connected to the ECU, or even in the vehicle or on the same side of the pit wall to pull logs and make changes. This means no more fighting through the roll cage and digging under the dash to find the ECU, before trying to plug in the cable while not breaking any pins.

Multiple G5 Voodoo Pro ECUs can be set-up on the same Wi-Fi network allowing you to switch seamlessly.

Dual onboard Digital Wideband Lambda controllers

The G5 Voodoo Pro’s built-in dual lambda controllers allow you to see what each bank of a V configuration engine is doing, making for a more accurate tune on each bank, so your vehicle runs optimally.

Dual microcontrollers

The G5 Voodoo Pro runs off not one, but two microcontrollers (computers) for more processing power, with one dedicated to running the engine and the other to communications.

Link CAN Files

Create your own separate CAN files with additional streams and channels, which can be saved, locked and shared. The flexible CAN locking system hides your proprietary CAN streams and gives the owner the ability to share the hidden file. The user can write a CAN stream and share the file without the recipient being able to see how it was written.

Flexible mounting options

Side and front mounts allow a multitude of installation options:

  • Fix to a face using the three top-down through-holes with M5 or 3/16 socket screws, or
  • Hang the ECU from a dash bar or similar using custom brackets and the four M5 side mounting points.
  • Integrated cable guides allow communication cables to be routed in line with the looms. Files are available so custom clamps can be 3D printed.

Direct Injection (DI) on up to 12 injection drives

The G5 Voodoo Pro is a cost-effective solution to opening up the world of both Port and Direct Injection. The G5 Voodoo Pro is capable of controlling Direct Injection on up to twelve injection drives, and requires an external OEM or aftermarket DI driver box. The G5 Voodoo Pro can run up to two DI fuel pumps using unused injection or ignition drives.

Built-in Global Positioning System (GPS)

Link’s high accuracy, high frequency GPS allows you to log position, ground speed and UTC time for data analysis at 50 times a second using Link’s Sensor fusion augmented GPS Technology.

This can be used for coaching, especially when connected to a driver analytics tool like MyRaceLab. It also allows you to be creative around setting up features or functions against position, real time or GPS speed.

And Link’s GPS can operate as a vehicle speed sensor for vehicles that don’t have one, giving you an accurate ground speed, such as some race cars or boats. It can be used to easily calibrate wheel speed and to compare wheel and ground speed to determine if tyre slip is occurring.

With Dead Reckoning Link's GPS will continue to calculate position when GPS lock is lost such as in a tunnel, garage or dense bush.

Dual onboard E-throttle (Drive by Wire)

Get a faster, more precise throttle response from up to two banks of a V configuration engine with dual E-throttle.

The G5 Voodoo Pro has fail-safe, internal solid state throttle disconnect relays, saving you from the hassle and mess of having to wire them in, making for much simpler E-throttle installation.

More auxiliaries than G4X

The G5 Voodoo Pro has between 14 and 30 auxiliary outputs (up from a maximum of 18 in G4X) depending on how many injector and ignition drivers are used. This controls even more functions like cooling fans, fuel pumps or a boost control solenoid. These auxiliaries are either dedicated or from unused E-throttle, Lambda or inj/ign drives and are not tied up doing functional things like an Ignition Switch. Included in these auxes are two H-Bridges, and four outputs capable of high side drive. All outputs can do PWM, and all regular auxiliary outputs are now protected from back feeding.

*30 are available if running a 4-cylinder sequential with no E-throttle or wideband.

Runs on PC Link

The G5 Voodoo Pro runs on the same highly acclaimed PC Link software as G4X, meaning you don’t need to learn a new software package. You can open both G4X and G5 log and map files in the same software, so you don’t have to keep switching software.

Seamless upgrade from G4X

The A and B header plugs on G4X and the G5 Voodoo Pro are identical and are pinned alike (except for two pins), so you can plug a G5 ECU into a G4X loom or harness and get started right away. PC Link allows you to easily convert G4X tuning Map files to a G5 version, so you can load a G4X Map into a G5 ECU.

UNLEASH THE MAGIC

Some of the ways G5 Voodoo can work for you

Drag
  • Nitrous Controlcontrol Nitrous Oxide (NOS) in four stages, giving you extra horsepower as you need it.
  • High Inputs and Outputs – control sixteen injector channels and eight ignition channels with sequential injection and direct spark, allowing you to run staged injection, by RPM or boost, on up to eight cylinders.
  • Race Timer and Power Management – set-up the G5 Voodoo Pro to recognise when your vehicle has started moving and then it starts a timer from zero, which it can then use to control engine power using features such as boost pressure, ignition timing, staged nitrous against the timer to ensure the features are delivering at optimum levels.
  • Anti-lag – a standard feature on the G5 Voodoo Pro, to minimise turbo lag on gearshifts.
  • Launch Control – control your engine speed on launch to reduce wheel spin allowing you to accelerate off the line as fast as possible.
Track
  • Global Positioning System (GPS) – log your position, ground speed and the UTC 50 times a second, using Link’s Sensor-Fusion augmented GPS Technology. This allows you to be creative around setting up features or functions against position, real time or GPS speed. The time and date can be stamped on your data log files, so you can compare your vehicle set-up changes in time order.
  • Accelerometer – a 3 Axis Accelerometer measures your G Force on 3 axes. One axis measures left versus right, which is your turning force, one measures front vs back, which is acceleration versus braking and the other measures up versus down, in case you leave the ground.
  • Traction Control – wheel slip traction control to reduce wheelspin during acceleration. The ECU can sense when your tyres begin to spin and will reduce power so you maintain traction. You can preset different traction control settings for different conditions such as wet vs dry or hot vs cold.
  • Paddle Shift – control paddle shifters and use advanced features such as Shaft Speed Matching, Controlled Blips, Mis-shift Detection and Retry Logic as standard. This allows for quicker, safer and smoother gear shifts and a longer lasting gearbox. With Paddle Shift you can keep two hands on the wheel at all times leading to greater car control and faster lap times. Not having to use the clutch between gears makes it easier to left foot brake.
  • High Inputs and Outputs – run up to 12 cylinders or 6 rotors with sequential injection and direct spark. It has more Inputs and Outputs than G4X allowing it to run more functions like cooling fans, fuel pumps or a boost control solenoid.
  • Speed Limiting – set a speed limiter to come on at the touch of a button, to control your speed in pit lane.
Rally
  • Direct Injection – DI technology is becoming more and more common in the rally world. The G5 Voodoo Pro can control Direct Injection on up to 12 injection drives using an external OEM or aftermarket driver box and can run up to two DI fuel pumps, using unused injection or ignition drives. It can also run port and DI injection simultaneously.
  • Anti-lag – a standard feature on the G5 Voodoo Pro to minimise turbo lag on gearshifts and cornering.
  • Paddle Shift Control – control paddle shifters and use advanced features such as Shaft Speed Matching, Controlled Blips, Mis-shift Detection and Retry Logic as standard. This allows for quicker, safer and smoother gear shifts and a longer lasting gearbox. With Paddle Shift you can keep two hands on the wheel at all times leading to greater car control and faster lap times. Not having to use the clutch between gears makes it easier to left foot brake to step the rear of the car out on cornering.
  • Speed Limiting – set multiple speed limiters to travel on public roads between stages. Multiple speed limiters can be preset for different road speeds.
  • High Inputs and Outputs – the G5 Voodoo Pro has more Inputs and Outputs than the G4X range of ECUs, allowing you to run all the street functions and features of your rally car, so it is legal to drive on public roads between stages. It also allows you to run motorsport features and functions for increased race performance.
  • Closed Loop Boost Control – a standard feature allowing you to keep within a targeted boost control.
  • Gear Shift Control – change gears without taking your foot off the accelerator. It does this by cutting ignition or fuel during upshifts and blipping the throttle during downshifts.
  • Launch Control – control your engine speed on launch to reduce wheel spin allowing you to accelerate off the line as fast as possible.
  • Engine Protection G5 Voodoo Pro has a range of engine safety features as standard so you don’t get stuck in the middle of nowhere. The safety features can either be enabled to protect your engine or disabled if need to get back to the service area, the choice is yours. You can program the ECU to send an error code to your dash, so you can immediately tell the crew what’s wrong when you get back to the service area. Enabling safety features may require additional sensors.
Drift
  • Engine Protection – G5 Voodoo Pro has a range of engine safety features as standard including a flexible Engine RPM Limiter. Other safety features can either be enabled to protect your engine or disabled if finishing your run is more important, the choice is yours. Enabling safety features may require additional sensors.
  • Anti-lag – a standard feature on the G5 Voodoo Pro, to minimise turbo lag on gearshifts and clutch kicks.
  • Nitrous Control – control Nitrous oxide (NOS) in four stages, giving you extra horsepower as you need it.
  • Gear shift control – change gears without taking your foot off the accelerator. It does this by cutting ignition or fuel during upshifts and blipping the throttle during downshifts.
  • Pops and Bangs (Burbles) – if you are into Pops and Bangs, they can easily be set-up in a G5 Voodoo Pro ECU, either when you lift off the throttle or as part of your Antilag set-up.
Street
  • Traction Control – wheel slip traction control reduces wheelspin during acceleration. The ECU can sense when your tyres begin to spin and will reduce power so you maintain traction. You can preset different traction control settings for different conditions such as wet vs dry or gravel vs paved.
  • E-Throttle (Drive by Wire) – get full control of your electronic throttle setup, allowing a faster more precise throttle response. It helps with Gearshift Control and is mandatory for features such as Traction Control and Cruise Control.
  • Pops and bangs (Burbles) – if you are into Pops and Bangs, they can easily be set-up in a G5 Voodoo Pro ECU, either when you lift off the throttle or as part of your Antilag set-up.
  • Onboard Lambda – dual onboard digital Lambda controllers make for a more accurate tune. This allows your vehicle to run optimally, adjusting the fueling to suit your current driving style such as cruising versus heavy acceleration.
  • Cruise Control – automatically control the speed of your vehicle by taking over the throttle of the car to maintain a steady speed as set by the driver.
  • Overrun fuel cut – a standard feature on the G5 Voodoo Pro where you can set the ECU to stop fueling when you take your foot completely off the accelerator, helping with fuel economy, cylinder cooling and emissions.
Off-road
  • Engine Protection – G5 Voodoo Pro has a range of engine safety features as standard so you don’t get stuck in the middle of nowhere. The safety features can either be enabled to protect your engine or disabled if need the power to get out of a bad situation, the choice is yours. Enabling safety features may require additional sensors.
  • Global Positioning System (GPS) – log your position, ground speed and the UTC 50 times a second, using Link’s Sensor-Fusion augmented GPS Technology. This allows you to be creative around setting up features or functions against position, real time or GPS speed. It also means you will always know where you are and what speed you are doing.
  • Traction Control – G5 Voodoo Pro uses wheel slip traction control to reduce wheelspin during acceleration. The ECU can sense when your tyres begin to spin and will reduce power so you maintain traction. You can preset different traction control settings for different conditions such as wet vs dry or hot vs cold.
  • Speed Limiters – set multiple speed limiters in case you need to travel on public roads between stages.
  • Splashproof – the G5 Voodoo pro is splashproof, so you don’t need to be afraid of going through the mud.
