EFI University returns to the PRI Trade Show this year to once again offer its popular one-day, classroom seating-only XFI training course on Wednesday, November 28. The dynamic course, which focuses on proper setup of an ECU using the latest software, is a perfect opportunity for racing professionals looking to update their skills in EFI for racing applications.
“This is a place where someone can come who really wants to learn how to do this but doesn’t want to experiment on his own car and blow it up,” said Ben Strader, founder and owner of EFI University, describing both his facility in Temecula, California, and the opportunities it offers. “Where else can you go and have access to different types of ECUs and different vehicles and different dynamometers in a structured environment with an actual professional tuner to look over your shoulder and say, ‘Hey, I’ve made that mistake you’re about to make so don’t do that, and here’s why.’”
EFI University teaches real theory and practices that are used in racing today, with an emphasis on building valuable skills and knowledge that allow its students to design and build their own custom applications based on the information and products that available intoday’s market.
A detailed program leads students through the process of engine tuning, understanding electronics, and using computer control.
Strader has taught the EFI University curriculum throughout the US and in nearly a dozen foreign countries. In addition, students who complete the course have access to follow-up support, including the instructor’s contact information, online student forums, and direct contacts with manufacturers reps for specific types of ECUs.
“I think a lot of people walk in the door thinking that engine calibration/engine mapping/engine tuning is a black magic, that it’s some secretive art form that only a few racers get to know, and a lot of racers do try to propagate that myth,” Strader explained. “But I think what they’re coming here for is that search for the truth, and what they find out is that everything that we do and everything that we teach here isbased on math and science. You can explain it, you can prove it on a calculator, and then we take it out of the classroom and into the shop with a car on the dyno, and the math works.”
At the 2012 PRI Trade Show, the EFI University Seminar takes place Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and there is a fee to attend. Register by calling 866/316-7744 or visit www.efi101.com.
