Q. My car won’t start or run properly with my Pavlotech package.
All Pavlotech packages come pre-configured with fairly extensive base maps to ensure ease of use, however in some extreme cases (wild engine builds, massive fuelling changes, or other customization) there could be a need for some basic setting changes. Contact Pavlotech for assistance. This support service is included in your package to a reasonable extent. Keep in mind that including a base map does NOT guarantee your vehicle has been fully calibrated/tuned. Every Pavlotech package requires final calibration by a trained professional. Choose your tuner wisely.
Q. Will my car pass emissions tests with a Pavlotech package?
Pavotech ECU solutions do not comply in any way with on board diagnostics and emissions regulations, therefore they are not legal for public roadways. That being said, Pavlotech recommends fully completing your ECU calibration which could potentially yield clean tailpipe emissions and great fuel economy. See disclaimer for more details.
Q. All I see are “kits”. Can I purchase Pavlotech ECU solution parts separately?
Yes of course! See the web store for individual components. For Pavlotech specific package parts, a 20% surcharge will be applied though. This is because Pavlotech has spent considerable time ensuring each package is pre-configured and fully functional for the desired application before hand. Purchasing individual pieces also may not come with support.
Q. Why a jumper harness? Why not just have the ECU plug directly into the Persuader?
It was decided a jumper harness would offer the most flexibility regarding input and output reconfiguration. Extreme users may need to perform extra harness re-configuration if the standardized expansion plug is not sufficient for their needs. This is why both ends of the harness use familiar AMP connectors for ease of use.
Q. I have a SL series Persuader kit. There are several unused pins/connectors on the Persuader box
This is normal as the Persuader adapters are designed to be compatible with both the KV and the SL series ECUs.
Q. What if my jumper harness is damaged? Where are the diagrams?
Contact Pavlotech for assistance with repairs or replacement of jumper harnesses. This support service is included in the price of the package.
Q. My engine is not running properly, and I think my Persuader adapter is bad.
Contact Pavlotech for assistance with repairs or replacement of the Persuader. This support service is included in the price of the package.
Q. I was told by Pavlotech support that I must pay for a new part even though I think it’s bad?
This is because Pavlotech was not provided with sufficient proof that an actual package component is to blame for the problem. This is our policy in order to prevent people from soliciting warranty claims to aid in their diagnosis (parts swapping). In a case where a returned Pavlotech part is in fact determined to have failed (under the guarantee guidelines), then payment for the extra part will appropriately be refunded. See guarantee for more information.
Q. How do I setup ECU logging?
Pavlotech packages come with pre-configured ECU logging configurations. If you need special assistance, the support service that is included in your package will cover custom configuration to a certain extent. In extreme cases, Pavlotech recommends purchasing additional support services.
Q. How do I setup my motorsport dashboard/data logger?
Depending on what service/package you have purchased, Pavlotech will help with this. In extreme cases, Pavlotech recommends purchasing additional support services.
Q. Will you discount your packages to sponsor my car?
Pavlotech ECU solutions rely heavily on the premium hardware that has been selected for use in its packages. This means there is little room for price negotiations due to background costs like import tax (tariff), shipping, and more. That being said, Pavlotech is looking to expand into all markets of performance. There are plans for a standardized form submission for potential sponsorships and discounts. In the mean time, feel free to contact us.
