Unlocks modern Mk60-family ABS controllers on older vehicles with "passive" VR wheel speed sensors. No need to modify your hubs/knuckles/axles to upgrade your braking!

  • Compatible with:
    • MK60 from BMW E46 (RWD, 2003+)
    • MK60E1 from BMW E8x/E9x (RWD, 4 cylinder)
    • MK60E5 from BMW E8x/E9x (RWD, 6 and 8 cylinder)
  • IP69K waterproof enclosure
  • Deutsch DTM/Amphenol ATM 12 pin connectors
  • PWM speed output for speedometer, ECU without CAN, etc. Adjustable pulses per km to scale speedometer correctly.
  • Brake light switch conditioning: supply a standard "12v for braking" brake light signal and it'll be converted to the signaling needed by the Mk60.
  • ABS fault light output for MK60E1/MK60E5. Option to blink the fault light when ABS/DSC is active.
  • CAN bus wake-up for MK60. MK60E1 and MK60E5 require no wakeup to send CAN data. All variants send wheel speed data, E1/E5 also send brake pressures.
  • USB and optional Bluetooth connectivity for configuration and firmware updates. Units without Bluetooth are fully functional, but require opening the case for configuration and firmware updates.

Compatible vehicles:

  • BMW E30, E36, E28, E34, E32
  • Chevrolet Corvette C4, C5, and C6 through 2008
  • Toyota MR2 SW20 with factory ABS, all Spyder/ZZW30
  • Mazda MX-5 NA, NB, and NC (factory ABS cars only)
  • Mazda RX-7, RX-8
  • SN95 Mustang
  • Nearly all other vehicles with VR speed sensors and 48-ish or 96-ish tooth tone rings
