This week's Tech Insight focuses on a term that you may (or may not!) have heard used before when it comes to calibrating an engine. MBT is an important aspect of engine calibration as it is directly related to the torque the engine produces and how safely at your chosen ignition advance. To get a better understanding of MBT, we should first start with a recap on the fundamentals of the spark delivery on a 4-stroke engine. The term ‘ignition timing’ / ‘ignition advance’ / ‘ignition angle’ refers to the point in the engine cycle at which the spark event...

This article will be predominantly based on how we do this with a Syvecs ECU, however the theory can be utilised on...
