EXCERPT FROM PACE NOTES MAGAZINE JULY 2006 ISSUE.
Based in County Galway, TTM Ltd is involved in many aspects of Irish motorsport. Headed by Cathal Greaney, the company’s primary interests lie with engine management systems and offer three main services - training, installation of ECUs and mapping of ECUs to both road and rally cars.
TTM Ltd offer training for other tuning companies and motorsport professionals in both Ireland and the UK. This is a major part of their business, as TTM has the expertise to be able to train motorsport professionals on how to map engine management systems in road and rally cars. All of their mapping technicians and instructors are qualified up to degree or masters level, providing a more than adequate level of knowledge required. The company started organising these courses in November 2005 and to date they have already trained more than 60 students!
“We regularly run courses on different aspects of engine management and tuning,” Cathal said. “The two most popular courses we run are ‘Basic Engine Management’ and ‘Advanced Engine Management’. We also run more specialised courses for experts from the UK and Ireland. These include ‘Variable CAM Mapping’ and ‘Mapping for Motorsport’.”
In addition to training, TTM also fit and map ECUs to road and rally cars to extract their full capability in the power stakes. For the competition and rally market, the company has worked with a lot of Mitsubishi Evo and Impreza Group N rally cars, as well as a lot of Honda rally cars.
“Most of the new Civic two litre Group N machines currently on the national and international circuit have been mapped by us”, Cathal told Pacenotes. “We’ve actually done seven of them since last November. In power terms, we usually get a gain of up to 28bhp from these cars.”
For the road going market, TTM map a lot of quick road cars such as Evos, Imprezas, Skylines, Toyotas, Hondas and VAG cars. They can remap original ECUs or install brand new aftermarket brains. With experience of mapping cars as high as 800bhp, and with their own demo car mapped to 713bhp (650bhp at the wheels using Motec M800), TTM have a vast amount of experience in the mapping field!
“We’re also authorised dealers for Motec, Gems, Autronic, Pectel, Apexi, Omex, Hondata and HKS,” Cathal continued. “Plus we’re the only company in the country (north or south) authorised to fit and map the HKS FCon range of engine management systems. This involves experts coming from HKS Europe for three days to test our facilities and expertise. We’re also the only official Hondata dealer in the country. Again, this involves a similar process of experts coming from overseas and inspecting our company before granting the licence. No other Irish company has achieved this!”
