Converting from a carbureted fuel system to electronic fuel injection (EFI) improves the performance, driveability, and fuel economy of any classic vehicle. Through a series of sensors, processors, and wires, it gathers engine and atmospheric information to precisely deliver the correct amount of fuel to your engine. With a carburetor, you must manually adjust and change parts to adapt it to differing conditions and applications. Installing a complete aftermarket EFI system may seem too complex, but it is within your reach by using the clear and easy-to-understand, step-by-step instructions. You will be able to confidently install the correct EFI system in your vehicle and enjoy all the benefits. A variety of EFI Systems are currently available--throttle body injection (TBI), multi port fuel injection (MPFI), stack systems, application specific, and special application systems. Author Tony Candela reveals the attributes of each, so you can select the system that's ideal for your car. Author Tony Candela explains in exceptional detail how to install both of these systems. To achieve top performance from an EFI system, it’s not a simple bolt-on and plug-in procedure. This book takes the mystery out of EFI so it’s not a black art but rather a clear working set of parameters. You are shown how to professionally install the injectors into the intake system as well as how to integrate the wiring into the main harness. In addition, each step of upgrading the fuel system to support the EFI is explained. The book also delves into integrating ignition and computer control with these aftermarket systems so you can be out driving rather than struggling with tuning. Turbocharged, supercharged, and nitrous applications are also covered. A well-installed and -tuned EFI system greatly improves the performance of a classic V-8 or any engine because the system delivers the correct fuel mixture for every operating condition. Get faster starts, better fuel economy, and crisp efficient performance. In EFI Conversions: How to Swap Your Carb for Electronic Fuel Injection, achieving all these benefits is easily within your reach.

Der Dieselmotor und die Einspritzanlage bilden eine untrennbare Einheit. In zunehmendem Maß gewinnt die Elektronik an Bedeutung, um die wachsenden Forderungen nach geringem Schadstoffausstoß und geringem Kraftstoffverbrauch zu erfüllen. Jüngste Beispiele hierfür sind das Unit Injector System und das Speichereinspritzsystem Common Rail, das mit dem Piezo-Inline-Injektor die Möglichkeiten zur Verbrauchsreduzierung noch mal entscheidend verbessert. Die aktuellen Maßnahmen zur innermotorischen Emissionsminderung, aber auch zur nachträglichen Schadstoffreduzierung wie Partikelfilter, SCR-Katalysator, Speicherkatalysator und Oxidationskatalysator werden ausführlich erklärt.

Understanding fuel injection and engine management systems is the key to extracting higher performance from today’s automobiles in a safe, reliable, and driveable fashion. Turbochargers, superchargers, nitrous oxide, high compression ratios, radical camshafts: all are known to make horsepower, but without proper understanding and control of fuel injection and other electronic engine management systems, these popular power-adders will never live up to their potential and, at worst, can cause expensive engine damage. Drawing on a wealth of knowledge and experience and a background of more than 1,000 magazine articles on the subject, engine-control expert Jeff Hartman explains everything from the basics of fuel injection to the building of complex project cars. Hartman covers the latest developments in fuel-injection and engine management technology applied by both foreign and domestic manufacturers, including popular aftermarket systems. No other book in the market covers the subject of engine management systems from as many angles and as comprehensively as this book. Through his continuous magazine writing, author Jeff Hartman is always up-to-date with the newest fuel-injection and engine management products and systems.

Downsizing ist ein wirkungsvolles Konzept für Otto- als auch für Dieselmotoren zur Realisierung eines niedrigen Kraftstoffverbrauchs und geringer Schadstoffemissionen. Hierbei werden aus kleinen Hubräumen hohe Leistungen und Drehmomente erzeugt. Downsizing erfordert besonders leistungsfähige Kraftstoffeinspritz- und Aufladesysteme und stellt hohe Anforderungen an die Motormechanik. Der Beschreibung der Teilprozesse motorischer Energiewandlung und der Verlustursachen folgend werden der Grundgedanke des Downsizing sowie die Wirkungsmechanismen und wesentlichen Konzeptbausteine detailliert erläutert. Ein Schwerpunkt ist die Beschreibung neuer Technologien zur Steigerung des Wirkungsgrads und zur Entschärfung der Problematik hochaufgeladener Verbrennungsmotoren. Gesamtkonzepte für Otto- und Dieselmotoren unter Berücksichtigung der Fahrzeugklassen oder Anwendungen werden erläutert und der Bogen zu zukünftigen Konzepten gespannt, wobei auch andere Technologien thematisiert werden. Das Buch wendet sich an Ingenieure, die sich mit der Motorenentwicklung beschäftigen. Studenten des Maschinenbaus finden umfangreiche Informationen über den Entwicklungstrend zukünftiger Motoren.

Das Buch behandelt die Entstehung von Schadstoffemissionen und die Möglichkeiten zu deren Verringerung sowie den Kraftstoffverbrauch bei Otto- und Dieselmotoren einschließlich Dieselmotoren mit Direkteinspritzung. Neben den motorischen Aspekten der Schadstoffbildung und Schadstoffminderung werden Systeme und Verfahren zur Abgasnachbehandlung dargestellt. Die wichtigsten Einflüsse der Kraft- und Schmierstoffe (sowohl konventionelle als auch alternative Kraftstoffe) auf das Schadstoffverhalten werden beschrieben. Neben konventionellen Otto- und Dieselmotoren werden auch Magermotoren und Ottomotoren mit Direkteinspritzung sowie Zweitakt-Otto- und Dieselmotoren behandelt. Auch das Potential der Möglichkeiten im Hinblick auf Verbrauchsabsenkung und Minimierung der Schadstoffemissionen wird dargestellt, ebenso die damit verbundene Verringerung der CO2-Emission. Am Ende des Buches sind die wichtigsten Gesetze und Verordnungen über Emissions- und Verbrauchsgrenzwerte in einer ausführlichen Übersicht zusammengestellt.

A practical guide to modifying and tuning modern electronic fuel injection (EFI) systems, including engine control units (ECUs). The book starts out with plenty of foundational topics on wiring, fuel systems, sensors, different types of ignition systems, and other topics to help ensure the reader understands how EFI Systems work. Next the book builds on that foundation, helping the reader to understand the different options available: Re-tuning factory ECUs, add on piggyback computers, or all out standalone engine management systems. Next Matt and Jerry help the reader to understand how to configure a Standalone EMS, get the engine started, prep for tuning, and tune the engine for maximum power and drivability. Also covered is advice on tuning other functions-- acceleration enrichments, closed loop fuel correction, and more. Finally, the book ends with a number of case studies highlighting different vehicles and the EMS solutions that were chosen for each, helping to bring it all together with a heavy emphasis on how you can practically approach your projects and make them successful!
