    Exclamation The Brucato Legacy Lives On With Brucato Power!

    [Official news release]

    Since 1994, Brucato has been a recognized name in the EFI world. Tony Brucato developed the Brucato SVS, the Brucato Pro Control Unit, or “PCU”, and proprietary fuel injector cleaning and calibration technologies.

    In 2005, the Brucato ACU was introduced as a more user-friendly version of the PCU, and is now known as the de facto replacement ECU for Mercury EFI engines using ProMax 'Laser' or 'horn' type injection systems (1988-2001). The Brucato ACU is a direct replacement for the Mercury ECU and has fuel curves that were developed, dialed in and perfected by Tony, himself.

    Now called Brucato Power, this is the new logo

    For many years, Tony and his wife, Linda, worked side by side running the Brucato business. Their daughter, Kim, worked in the shop, too, cleaning fuel injectors and running the CNC machine, making parts for the world-famous Brucato SVS. In July 2018, Tony and Linda retired, passing on the Brucato legacy to Kim. She renamed the company Brucato Power and is carrying the torch by continuing to manufacture, sell and support the Brucato ACU and its accessories. The Brucato ACU is available for over 15 engine applications and can be customized for each user. The shop is located in Cary, North Carolina, where they also test Mercury ECUs and Brucato ACUs. For boaters who want to swap an ACU to a different engine, Brucato Power can reprogram and update the box to each customer's specification.

    The Brucato ACU is keeping Mercury EFI motors from becoming obsolete and supports the needs of recreational boaters and racers, alike. The ACU has better fuel curves than the stock ECU, which results in increased fuel economy of up to 30% at idle to mid-range and horsepower gains for most users. As the one and only replacement ECU for Mercury EFI engines, Brucato is helping to keep Mercs running! Get back on the water with a Brucato ACU!

    Brucato Power can be found on the web at www.BrucatoPower.com and on Facebook at Brucato Power Official.

    Where are the circuit boards built for these? I work for a PCB contract manufacturer now, so I’m curious. I owned a PCU for over 10 years and it always kept mymotor running flawlessly.

    No. Dad retired, I took over with a partner, then sold my shares and made some money on the deal. Got back into electronics, sold the Hydrostream, bought a Sea Ray. That’s about it.

    ...and some bad news, then, I guess.

    Hi Pyro,
    Our circuit boards are built here in the USA by our electrical engineer.
