EZ-EFI - 2010 HRR Trade Show Presentation

  1. 1. EZ-EFI What you need to know Brian Reese FAST
  2. 2. FUEL INJECTION 101 <ul><li>Many times a second, a group of sensors measure various engine and atmospheric conditions. </li></ul><ul><li>Just as fast, the Engine Control Unit (ECU) analyzes the sensor data and commands the correct fuel delivery. </li></ul><ul><li>Sensors also evaluate the accuracy of the EFI commands and use the feedback to fine tune future commands. </li></ul>
  3. 3. ADVANTAGES OF EFI <ul><li>More torque and power </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Intake manifold can be optimized, improved control of fuel and spark, tunability </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Improved throttle response and drivability </li></ul><ul><ul><li>No hesitation/stumble when cold </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No vapor lock when hot </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Infinitely tuned versus tuned for ‘one spot’ with a carb </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Easy starting, regardless of weather </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Better fuel economy </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Superior tunability, Wide band feedback and control </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Lower exhaust emissions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Good for many reasons </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Overall increase in engine lifetime </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Better running engines last longer </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. DISADVANTAGES OF EFI <ul><li>Complicated </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Requires advanced knowledge of engine performance </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Tuning is difficult and expensive </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Requires a dyno and countless test sessions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Requires a laptop and the ability to use it </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Requires a professional tuner </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Expensive </li></ul><ul><ul><li>EFI system, manifold, dyno time, laptop, tuner time </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Can’t see it </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Little black boxes and a lot of wires </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Fear factor </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Horror stories of legend </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Sanctioning bodies </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Many don’t embrace or allow EFI </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Design Objectives for EZ-EFI <ul><li>ELIMINATE the Disadvantages of EFI! </li></ul>
  6. 6. Infancy of Program <ul><li>EFI Guys banned from planning session! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>EFI guys don’t understand how Carb guys think </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CARB Guys led the planning and approval sessions! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What do they want, what do they fear, what would get their interest </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Initial Plan </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Easy, Easy, Easy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No “EFI” tech lingo </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No Laptop at all! provide a hand held controller or use adjustment screws. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Make it work just like a carb; a 750cfm carb will work just as good on a Chevy, Ford, Chrysler, etc! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Delivery a very high value at a reasonable cost </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Absolutely no trips to a tuner, dyno, expert, etc </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. The EZ-EFI Plan <ul><li>Excellent Performance </li></ul><ul><li>EASY no expertise needed </li></ul><ul><li>Self tuning* </li></ul><ul><li>No laptop / No tuning needed </li></ul><ul><li>Use existing carb manifolds </li></ul><ul><li>Compatible with existing throttle cables </li></ul><ul><li>Affordable Price </li></ul><ul><li>Highly compatible </li></ul><ul><li>Maintenance free </li></ul><ul><li>Support high horsepower </li></ul><ul><li>*That actually works! </li></ul>
  8. 8. What is “REAL” Self Tuning <ul><li>WARNING: Many companies are claiming ‘self tuning’ </li></ul><ul><li>Closed Loop Wide Band Feedback is NOT self tuning </li></ul><ul><li>Limited block learn from closed loop is NOT self tuning </li></ul><ul><li>Requiring a ‘pre-tune’ or ‘selecting’ a map to start is a sure sign of inferior, inaccurate claim of self tuning </li></ul><ul><li>“ REAL” self tuning does not require a pre-tune or map at all. EZ-EFI builds a map from SCRATCH! </li></ul>
  9. 9. The (Big) Hurdles <ul><li>Proper fuel distribution from a throttle body </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Patented design </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Properly functioning and capable self tuning </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Easy to learn, INCREADIBLY HARD to only learn the good stuff and disregard the bad stuff. Over 5 years of development. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Eliminate the disadvantages of EFI </li></ul><ul><li>Keep it affordable </li></ul>
  10. 10. What is Became <ul><ul><ul><li>FAST EZ-EFI </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Eliminated Disadvantages of EFI </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Available in single 4bbl, dual quad, and multiport </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>REAL self tuning that actually works </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Capable of supporting up to 1000hp </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>EASY, EASY, EASY </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Installing EZ-EFI <ul><li>How Long Does it Take to Install? </li></ul><ul><li>Professional: 2-8hrs* </li></ul><ul><li>Do it Yourselfer: A weekend </li></ul><ul><li>*Depends on application and fuel system </li></ul>
  12. 12. Installing EZ-EFI <ul><li>Where is the time? </li></ul><ul><li>Fuel system – this is the biggest time variable. </li></ul><ul><li>If the vehicle is already EFI based, fuel setup is very quick. </li></ul><ul><li>For carb conversions, the fuel system requires modification to convert to EFI – this could be time consuming </li></ul><ul><li>EZ EFI Master kit includes FULL Fuel system </li></ul>
  13. 14. Installing EZ-EFI <ul><li>Where is the time? </li></ul><ul><li>Installing the Wide Band O2 </li></ul><ul><li>All EZ-EFI kits include a weld-in bung and plug. The bung can be welded in at a shop and plugged for the drive home, or it can be welded in to a header ‘off the car’. </li></ul><ul><li>FAST does NOT recommend “clamp-in” adaptors for wide band O2. These may appear easy, but they are prone to leaking. Leaking exhaust will kill self-tuning EFI! </li></ul>
  14. 15. Installing EZ-EFI <ul><li>Where is the time? </li></ul><ul><li>4 wire hookup: </li></ul><ul><li>Battery Power </li></ul><ul><li>Battery Ground </li></ul><ul><li>Ignition Switch </li></ul><ul><li>RPM/Tach Signal </li></ul><ul><li>Optional: </li></ul><ul><li>Fan Relay </li></ul><ul><li>A/C </li></ul>
  15. 16. Installing EZ-EFI <ul><li>Where is the time? </li></ul><ul><li>Throttle body, wiring harness, sensors, initial setup – less than 1 hr </li></ul><ul><li>Hand Held wizard – less than 10 minutes </li></ul>
  16. 19. Installing EZ-EFI Where is the time? Hand held setup wizard
