1. Flex Fuel & Lambda
Even though E85 is assumed to be 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline from the
pump, the true blend can vary significantly from one fuel fill up to another.
This of course has to be taken into account in the tune, especially in high
performance ethanol fueled applications. It is for this reason that it is
important to not only monitor the ethanol content percentage, but also
measure the air/fuel values with different blends.
When measuring air/fuel ratio in a flex fuel system, it is important to
understand that different fuels have different stoichiometric values and
therefore different scales. This can greatly affect how the values are
interpreted. As seen in the table below, the stoichiometric value and the
display scale for each fuel differs. Since the blend of ethanol is ever changing
so will the relative stoichiometric value. The easiest solution to interpreting
the changing stoichiometric values is to use lambda (λ) as the unit of
measure instead of air/fuel ratio. The stoichiometric value in lambda is 1
regardless of the fuel type. It is for this reason that the ECB-1 comes set
from the factory displaying lambda. This is a user definable option,
meaning the ECB-1 can also be programed to display AFR for nearly any
fuel type.

2. ECB-1
The ECB-1 is a four-in-one, ethanol content %, fuel temperature,
boost pressure, and wideband air/fuel ratio gauge. Although it can be
operated stand alone, it has digital I/O for integration with other Innovate
Motorsports MTS compatible products and four configurable analog outputs
for integration with piggy back or stand-alone ECU’s as well as external data
loggers. The following section will help you get familiar with the ECB-1.
2
1. Channel Display
- The ECB-1 has three different displays modes that can be cycled
through on the main screen with the left and right interface buttons.
The channels displayed in the single, dual, and quad channel
displays are user defined from the setup menu.
2. Status or Error display
- When in the single or dual channel display, the upper right hand
viewport of the ECB-1 is reserved to display any O2 sensor or flex
fuel sensor error codes that might be present.
3. Interface Buttons
- Pressing either the left or right interface buttons will allow you to
cycle through the 3 different display modes.
- From the main screen, pressing and HOLDING the left interface
button will put the gauge in setup mode. Once in setup mode,
pressing and HOLDING both interface buttons together will move
you to the menu or main screen. The gauge will revert back to the
main screen if no there have been no button presses for 15 seconds.
- To clear Peak boost, press and HOLD the right while in one of the
main channel displays.
4. Warning Light
- Illuminates when trigger for the target boost alarm is reached.

Changing the ECB-1’s gauge face and/or bezel
1. Lay the ECB-1 face down and remove the three #2 phillips screws
from the outside rim of the back plate.
2.
3. Configure the gauge as desired by changing the gauge face and/or
bezel.
4. Make sure every piece is positioned correctly using the locating tab
and reassemble the gauge.
5. Reinstall the three #2 phillips screws verifying that the buttons are
not binding on the gauge lens.

Installation
2.1
Wiring
The ECB-1 has 6 stripped wire leads:
1
Connect the RED wire to an isolated switched 12V source in your
vehicle. A switched 12V source goes ON as soon as “key on” power is
active. The circuit to which you will pull power from should be able to
support a 3 amp draw. Make sure this connection is protected with a 5A
fuse (not supplied.)
Circuits that share power with the vehicle’s stereo, ignition system,
ECU, lighting, or fuel pump should not be used. When in doubt, create an
additional circuit using an automotive relay available at any automotive parts
supplier. See the next section for a relay installation diagram.
2
The BLACK wire should be grounded to a solid ground source. The
best possible ground source would be the battery ground (-) post.
If other Innovate Motorsports devices are going to be daisy-chained
along with the ECB-1, it is recommended that all devices be connected to a
single ground point, ideally the battery ground (-) post.
3
Connect the WHITE wire to a headlight power wire (a wire that goes hot
with 12V when the headlights are on)). This enables the display to dim
for better nighttime viewing. DO NOT CONNECT THIS WIRE TO THE
HEADLIGHT DIMMING WIRE. Connection to this rheostat type of
switch will cause the gauge to malfunction. If you chose not to utilize the
dimming feature, connect the WHITE wire to ground.
5
4
Optionally, the YELLOW (Wideband), BROWN (Ethanol %), and/or
ORANGE (Fuel Temp) analog outputs can be connected to the analog
inputs of other devices such as data loggers or programmable ECUs. If
any of these wires are not being used, isolate and tape the wire(s) out of
the way.
The analog outputs are fully programmable with the LM Programmer
software. The factory default analog outputs are as follows:
Wire Color
Yellow
Channel
Wideband
Brown
Orange
Ethanol %
Fuel Temp
Min
0V = .5 λ
0V = 7.35
(Gasoline)
0V = 0% Ethanol
0V = -40 degF
Max
5V = 1.5 λ
5V = 22.39
(Gasoline)
5V = 100% Ethanol
5V = 257 degF
It is assumed that the ECB-1 and the device the analog output is being
feed to are already sharing the same ‘ground’. In a vehicle, this is
generally true, but there can be small offsets in voltage when devices
are grounded to, the chassis at different points. You can minimize these
offsets by sharing a good, common ground point.

Gauge Mounting and Routing
2.2
The ECB-1 gauge fits in any standard 2 1/16” (52mm) gauge pod. Mounting
of the gauge should be done in such a manner that the cables are not being
forcefully pulled and strained from the gauge itself. Route the sensor cables
avoiding contact with the exhaust system and other vehicle components that
could damage the cable. Also avoid routing the cables near ignition
components or other sources of RF (radio frequency) and EMI
(Electromagnetic interference) noise.
Wideband Oxygen Sensor Setup
2.3
2.3.1
Oxygen Sensor Placement
Optimum bung placement will vary from application to application, but using
the guidelines below will ensure the longest sensor life with the most
accurate readings. Using a bung is the preferred method for mounting the
oxygen sensor in all applications.

Weld the bung at least 24 inches downstream of the exhaust port
outlet (after the collector), or 24 inches after the turbocharger if so
equipped. The bung should be welded before the X or H pipe if so
equipped.

Using a clock as reference, mount the bung between the 9:00
o’clock and 3:00 o’clock position. Welding the bung in the lower
section of the exhaust pipe can result in sensor damage caused by
condensation making contact with the sensor’s internal heating
element.

A 1” bung (provided in the kit) will best protect the sensor. When
fully threaded, the sensor’s tip will sit flush with the exhaust pipe, this
does not adversely affect the readings.

The bung should always be welded before the Catalytic Converter.
Welding the bung after the catalytic converter will skew the readings
toward lean. The skew in readings will vary with engine load and the
efficiency of the catalytic converter.

Leaded fuel and two stroke applications will reduce the sensor’s life.
There are many other factors that dictate the sensor’s lifespan so it is
impossible to predict it’s total longevity.

Exhaust leaks, camshaft overlap, and open (shorty) exhausts will
cause false lean readings at light engine loads. Typically, once the
7
engine is under load and the exhaust gas volume increases, you will
see accurate readings.

When installed in the exhaust, the oxygen sensor must be connected
to a powered, functional ECB-1 (no error codes) whenever the
engine is running. An un-powered sensor will be damaged in a short
period of time when exposed to exhaust gas.

Do not pre-warm the sensor before starting the engine, simply start
the engine as normal. Allowing the sensor to pre-warm before
starting the engine will increase the possibility of damaging the
sensor from shock-cooling.

The maximum temperature of the sensor at the bung (the sensor
mounting location) should not exceed 500 oC or 900 oF. If these
temperatures are exceeded in your application you should install the
Innovate Motorsports HBX-1 heat sink bung extender. (p/n 3729.)
As the O2 sensor measures the oxygen content of the exhaust
gas to provide an accurate O2 reading, even a small pin-hole
leak in a poorly welded sensor bung will effect the accuracy
and performance of your O2 sensor. Remember, any deviation from the
instructions provided for proper sensor installation will lead to
inaccurate O2 readings.
2.3.2 Sensor Calibration
Once the unit has been wired and a suitable location has been found for both
the gauge and the sensor, it is time to perform the sensor calibration.
Innovate Motorsports’ ‘Direct Digital’ wideband measurement principal allows
you to calibrate the sensor to compensate for sensor wear. This procedure
takes just a few moments and it will ensure the most accurate readings
throughout the oxygen sensor’s life. This procedure is required anytime a
NEW oxygen sensor is installed.
The calibration procedure requires that the oxygen sensor be in free air, this
means removed from the exhaust system completely.
1. With the sensor disconnected, apply power to the ECB-1.
Confirm that the wideband channel displays “O2 E2.” This is an error
code, indicating that no sensor is detected. If needed, use the interface
buttons to change the display screen until the wideband channel is
shown. Leave unit powered on for a minimum of 30 seconds.
8
2. Power down the ECB-1 and attach the oxygen sensor using the cable
provided. When making these connections, make sure they are fully
seated and locked. Again, make sure that the sensor is in free air (not in
the exhaust).
3. Power up the ECB-1.
The ECB-1 will start warming up the sensor, this is indicated the display
by showing “O2 HTR.” After 30-60 seconds, the display will switch from
“O2 HTR” and quickly flash “O2 CAL”, indicating that the sensor is being
calibrated.
The calibration procedure has completed and the system is now ready
for use.
Important: You can disconnect and reconnect the sensor and
sensor cable for installation without losing your calibration.
However, if you power up the ECB-1 without a sensor connected,
your calibration will be reset (see step #1 above).
2.3.3
Calibration Schedule
Normally aspirated (daily driver)
- Calibrate before installation of new sensor
- Calibrate new sensor again after 3 month of use
- Thereafter calibrate once a year or every 20,000 miles, whichever comes
first
Turbo Application, daily driver (tuned rich)
- Calibrate before installation of new sensor
- Calibrate new sensor again after 3 month of use
- Thereafter calibrate twice a year or every 10,000 miles, whichever comes
first
Race Application
- Calibrate before first installation of new sensor
- Calibrate once per race weekend
2.4
Flex Fuel Sensor
P/N 3911 kit does not include flex fuel sensor. The ECB-1 is compatible
with GM P/Ns 13577429 and 13577379
The installation of the flex fuel sensor requires knowledge of
the fuel system. Improper installation can lead to catastrophic
failure, and damage to vehicle and/or persons. It is highly
9
recommend that the flex fuel sensor be installed by a reputable
professional mechanic.

2.4.1
The flex fuel sensor will report both ethanol content and fuel
temperature.
The sensor fittings are 3/8" SAE quick-disconnect male on both
ends.
Plan for the flex fuel sensor installation. Additional fuel hose and
adapters (not included) might be necessary to successfully install the
sensor.
The sensor can be installed in the feed or return line. Because of
possible fuel restrictions, installation of the sensor in the return line
might be the best choice.
Before disconnecting any fuel line connections make sure to
depressurize the fuel system.
The orientation of the flex fuel sensor is not important, it can be
mounted in any direction.
Check for fuel leaks and address them accordingly before
driving the vehicle!
Flex Fuel Sensor Wiring
1. Fish the flex fuel sensor’s 4 pin connector cable through the firewall,
to the ECB-1 gauge. Make sure to leave enough strain relief.
2. Connect the sensor’s female 4 pin connector to the male 4 pin
connector on the gauge.
3. Connect the Delphi 3 pin connector to the flex fuel sensor.

MAP Sensor
The MAP sensor MUST be installed with the hose fitting facing
down. It is very important that the sensor be isolated from heat,
mounted away from all ignition and/or other potential RF emitting
sources, and protected against excessive vibration.
The MAP sensor has two 1/8” holes that can be used to secure the
sensor. Another viable option to mount the sensor is to use a high temp
safe double-sided mounting tape.
2
Locate a vacuum source on the intake manifold, it must be after the
throttle body. Connect it to the hose fitting on the sensor. Use the
provided “T” and hose to make this connection if needed. To secure the
hose use tie-wraps or hose clamps.

When Enabled, the warning light will illuminate when actual boost
exceeds Target Boost. You must first setup Target Boost for this
feature to work.
2. Fuel Temperature Units (Temp Units) – Set the unit of measure for
the fuel temperature channel to either Fahrenheit or Celsius. Default
setting is Fahrenheit.
3. Boost Pressure Units (Press Units) - Allows the gauge to display
pressure in either inHG/PSI, kPa or BAR. Default setting is inHG/PSI
4. Wideband O2 Units (WB O2 Units) – Allows the gauge to display
O2 units in either AFR or Lambda. Default setting is Lambda λ.

9. Quad Field Screen (Quad Screens A,B,C,D) - Chose which
channels are displayed in the four quadrants of the four channel
display screen.
3.3
Target Boost Setup
Target Boost is a feature that calculates your ECU’s target boost based on
the current ethanol percentage level. It then displays this on the gauge for
informational purposes. It can also be used in conjunction with the Max Boost
Alarm warning LED to indicate if actual boost has exceeded target boost.
Target Boost is turned OFF by default. To enable you need to set the values
in Target Boost Setup. This can be done directly on the gauge or in LM
Programmer (Figure 1). To obtain these values you must first find out what
boost levels your ECU tune targets for the ethanol percentage range. Most
ECU tunes have a minimum boost level when ethanol percentage is at or
under a low percentage level. As the ethanol percentage increases the ECU
12
can add more boost up to its maximum which corresponds to the high
ethanol percentage level. From this point on adding more ethanol will not
increase boost. (Figure 2)
