EFI Calibration Seminar

Duration: 1.5 days
The engine control unit (ECU, PCM, ECM, EEC, DME) is the computer that controls engine operation including fuel injection, ignition timing, and other functions. Proper "programming" of the PCM is required to achieve the desired performance behavior of the engine. This calibration is done by factory engineers for stock engines. Changing hardware components on the engine often requires a recalibration of the ECU to allow the engine to operate most effectively.

This course provides background on the physical operation of the engine and how the sensors relay this information to the ECU. It also covers how the ECU uses these inputs in determining the proper outputs to yield the desired air/fuel ratio, spark advance, and power output. There is an emphasis on taking an engineering approach to ECU calibration and getting the right result for the right reason.

Examples are tailored toward the tuning industry using both reprogrammed OEM systems and popular "stand alone" aftermarket systems. Discussions will range from domestic V8s to more exotic forced induction 4 cylinders. Since the same principles apply to a wide variety of engines, students will be able to apply their new knowledge to just about any EFI project. The course goes further in depth than most basic clinics. Students are provided useful reference material that will serve them for years to come. The seminar will include several live demonstrations using a chassis dynamometer and the latest aftermarket tuning software.

Benefits of Attending
By attending this seminar, you will learn to:
• Describe how the engine and its sensors function
• Explain how the PCM uses the sensor inputs to determine fuel injection and timing
• Interpret base fuel and spark tables
• Develop and correct base tables and adders

Who Should Attend?
Anyone interested in the operation of the PCM and engine calibration. This course will be of particular interest to those looking to tune their own EFI systems or those who tune professionally. Some math is involved, so be prepared to use the calculators we provide in the class.

well if i had the money id do it. is it a open date? and Fee includes course materials, what materials and do we get to keep them?

Yes you keep the Course Materials that were you right all your notes...

Also, He works with SCT and help teaches there advance course..

You get hand on with a real live dyno.. The dyno company spent lots of money for the software.. He show us how to use it and how to set a car on the lift. He also show us all about the EFI system and how calculate you maf counts and many other stuff listed above..

Must be a privately owned sr71 to cost 4k to fly down lol
Maybe I should of reword it.. It pays for his 3 nights room and board, rental car, and meals. So for him flying down from SCT to do this for us is a real good deal.


Once we are trained, the 8 people who got the training, could rent a dyno by the hour and tune our members cars. We will be proficient enough to tune cars.
