Engine Management Advanced Tuning Engine Management: Advanced Tuning
by Greg Banish
As tools for tuning modern engines have become more powerful
and sophisticated in recent years, the need for in-depth
knowledge of engine management systems and tuning techniques
has grown. Tuning engines can be a mysterious art, as all
engines need a precise balance of fuel, air, and timing in order to
reach their true performance potential.

Engine Management: Advanced Tuning explains how the EFI
system determines engine operation and how the calibrator can
change the controlling parameters to optimize actual engine
performance. This book takes engine-tuning techniques to the
next level. It is a must-have for tuners and calibrators and a
valuable resource for anyone who wants to make horsepower with
a fuel-injected, electronically controlled engine.

Author Greg Banish is a calibration engineer with extensive
aftermarket performance calibration experience. With over a
thousand unique calibrations performed over five years, he has
worked with enthusiasts and OEMs alike to improve the
performance and driving behavior of a wide range of vehicles.

The book contains detailed equations, graphs, and illustrations.
Also included are valuable and practical examples, including real-
world examples based upon the author’s experience that will help
more advanced readers apply this new information to situations
that are commonly seen during calibration.

Introduction to EFI Systems
Before this book even begins, I wish to make it perfectly clear that this is not an engine design or
combustion theory text. The goal here is for the educated enthusiast, skilled technician, and
automotive engineer alike to all be able to come away with something. To this end, we explore the
basics of engine operation to reinforce what is really going on under the hood. From there, we
move on to the “ins and outs” of modern electronic fuel injection systems and ultimately some
specifics of calibration methods and horsepower production. The focus of this book is gasoline
engines; however, many of the concepts can carry over to other applications. While much of the
material may seem like a review to many, it is important to keep in mind the fundamentals of engine
operation while attempting to change calibrations. A solid understanding of what is happening
inside the manifold and combustion chamber gives the calibrator an edge in tuning.
2006 Ford Mustang
The 2006 Ford Mustang
makes 300 hp out of a 281
cubic engine for a specific
output of 1.07 hp/ci, with
complete compliance to today’
s stringent emissions
standards. (Nate Tovey)
Let’s face it, today’s performance enthusiast doesn’t want to compromise. We want tons of power,
reliability, drivability, and worry-free operation. Gone are the days of living with the compromises
between the horsepower seekers and the emissions regulators. We now live in a time where one
can walk into a new car dealership and simply buy an honest 400-horsepower car that idles quietly,
drives smooth as silk, and is backed by a full factory warranty. Considering that in the heyday of the
muscle car wars 300 gross horsepower was astounding and it still came with a rough idle and
terrible gas mileage, today’s performance car market is as good as it has ever been.
2.2L fuel injected engine
The engine in this Mercedes 220SE is
equipped with mechanical fuel injection
and makes about 120 hp from 2.2
liters. It has limited capability to adjust
for changing weather conditions. (Nate
Tovey)
So how did we get here? First and foremost, the automakers have learned a thing or two about
engine design in the last three decades. Serious advances  in the areas of cylinder head, intake,
and camshaft design have allowed engines to make far more power out of much smaller packages
and displacements. What the OEM engineers call specific output, or power per cubic inch, has
gone way up directly as a result of the increase in flow potential of modern component designs.
Compare today’s injection molded long runner intake with the cast-iron four-barrel paperweight of
the ’60s and it’s easy to see the difference. Other than the obvious weight advantage, the port walls
are smoother and sizes are tuned to take advantage of standing waves to increase port energy at
the same time the valves are opening. Friction has become another area where modern engines
have evolved tremendously. Where there were once solid tappets dragging across an oiled cam
under severe spring pressure, there are now hydraulically damped rollers—or even the complete
lack of pushrods—shortening the path between the cam lobe and valve. Looking at a modern
cylinder head also reveals carefully designed port geometry, combustion chambers designed to do
more than simply seal ports, and often a camshaft or two. The head ports themselves have evolved
to increase velocity, yielding more total flow through smaller valves and better mixing of the air and
fuel in the combustion chamber.
1600 hp drag race engine
This modern engine, although still
carbureted, produces large amounts of
power. But even at over 1,600 hp, it
must still be adjusted to accommodate
changes in current weather conditions
for best performance. (Nate Tovey)
With that said, efficiently designed air pumps don’t run as a working engine without a little help.
Current production vehicles run on electronic fuel injection for a whole list of reasons, not the least
of which are emissions and drivability. Fortunately, emissions and power production are not
completely at odds with one another as the environmentalists would have us believe. The
underlying connection is efficiency. Taking advantage of every drop of fuel in the engine leaves
less left over to pollute our precious atmosphere and ensures that we’re not missing out on our
chance to use the energy in that fuel to push as hard as possible on the piston to move us down
the road. The balance is to make sure that we only inject enough fuel to make the power necessary
to do whatever it is we’re asking the engine to do at the moment. Whether it’s idling at a stoplight,
cruising the interstate, or racing down the quarter mile, there is always an ideal recipe of air and
fuel to pour into the engine to keep things working as close to peak efficiency as possible. The
closer we can keep the engine to this ideal mix at all times, the better the engine will perform.
2000 horsepower fuel injected engine
This Super Street Outlaw engine uses
two sets of injectors, each on its own
rail, to supply enough fuel to make
almost 2,000 hp. With an EFI control
system, changes in weather are
automatically compensated for by the
PCM to keep the engine running at its
peak. (Nate Tovey)
