IGniTron 1.8t pnp standalone ECU



Out of stock


The IGniTron is a little known ecu (outside of its home in Hungary), but is an absolute gem of a product for those wanting fully mappable, non me7.5 limited tuning.  View our videos of this ECU here

NEW I24 firmware now out... full DSG support

This product is a genuine plug in replacement unit for me7.5  No adaptor looms or extra boxes required.  

The IGniTron utilises factory sensors, wideband, knock, maf (or not), vvt, egt etc etc. Supports Haldex cars. Very configurable and straight forward to setup. VE based tuning, much on board data logging internally and when connected to the mapping software.  User configurable sensors possible e.g 4bar map sensor, running true mafless with MAP for load, ideal for the bigger 1.8t/stroker builds where MAFs are unreliable and inadequate.  you retain factory knock sensors, and wideband afr with factory fast response not seen on any ecu for 1.8t at this price point. It really is an impressive ecu for the 1.8t

Badger 5 are the UK Sole Representatives for this ecu, using it on our bigger turbo builds as the preferred #1 choice.

Tablet view for in car monitoring, with on board data logging ability makes for all neccessary gauges available and completely configurable to suit your needs.

Ignitron ECU comes with a host software running on the Windows platform. The ECU is connected to the PC/notebook or tablet via USB. Its user interface is simple but effective. Do not expect any fancy eye catching graphics as we believe performance is more important than looks! The host will run happily on a slow and old machine with Windows XP, even on the cheapest Windows tablet you can find (and can carry with yourself or permanently mount in your car).

This application (which is a free download) can be used to set up the ECU and diagnose the engine. Loading a completely new settings file up into the ECU takes about 20 seconds, but if you change just a few parameters or maps, then the refresh takes a fraction of a second only. Hundreds of available variables and parameters can be recorded simultaneously during data logging. Forthcoming free ECU firmware upgrades are also available from within the host application. 

Go to the downloads section to get the demo version. 


The host software of Ignitron ECU requires a personal computer (notebook or tablet) with Windows XP or Windows 7 operating system. On XP it is happy with at least 512Mb memory and 1Ghz CPU, on Windows 7 (and above) it works best with at least 1Gb of memory and 2Ghz+ CPU. Windows 8.x and Windows 10 are also supported, though additional fine tuning is needed for these platforms (which is in progress), for the time being we recommend Windows 7. Minimum screen resolution is 1024x600 pixels.
