For years, EFI University has been recognized as a trend-setter and industry leader for their unique approach to providing the professionals and enthusiasts of the performance aftermarket with the technical knowledge and skills required to successfully wade through the complicated world of electronic fuel injection.
Using both hands-on dynamometer training and in-depth classroom discussions, EFI-U is out to protect the performance aftermarket industry and separate their students from the increasing trend of “professionals” who received their training from internet forums and YouTube videos, where easily separating fact from opinion is next to impossible.The best part is that the school’s courses are structured so that they can be condensed into several days instead of several months; limiting your costs and time away from home and work.
EFI-U has officially announced their class schedule for 2017; along with a number of new courses, introductory EFI-101 course locations, factory training programs, and manufacturer partnerships that will be sure to better the aftermarket industry as a whole.
In addition to the school’s professionally recognized online courses and brick-and-mortar classes like EFI-101, Advanced Turbo Concepts and the Accelerated Certification Program (more on this later); EFI University has announced three new courses that will further expand their reach into the industry beyond just performance EFI tuning and dyno operation; Competition Engine Development (CED), Motorsports Wiring and Configuration (MWC), and an OEM “Reflash” Training Course (RTC).
The CED course is a three day class designed to teach students important topics related to engine assembly and diagnosis at the competition level, while assembling a real engine. Students will learn topics such as what needs to be measured, how to use measurement tools correctly, proper documentation skills and procedures, finding and understanding problem areas, and clearances and tolerances for various applications.
Students will also dive into more advanced topics such as engine theory, component identification, piston shapes, and the differences in technique for assembling and planning a naturally aspirated build versus a forced induction application.The MWC course is a three day hands-on course covering everything from the theory and design of electrical systems to ECU inputs and outputs, electrical interference and shielding, assembly techniques, accurately deciphering circuit diagrams, and prepping and building a loom. By the end of the course every student will have constructed a functional motorsports-grade harness.
The RTC course is a two day class, featruing a mix of classroom and dyno time that teaches students the craft of tuning late-model LS engines using a factory ECU with aftermarket tuning software, which is perfect for the enthusiast looking to add basic bolts on and wants the vehicle to perform at its best.
The course uses both EFILive and HP Tuners software and covers topics such as scanning, data logging, rescaling sensor calibrations,VE based tuning, ignition table operation and compare dyno tuning versus road tuning. Students will experiment with the school’s 700 wheel horsepower procharged 2016 Chevy SS.
New LocationsThe bulk of EFI-U’s in-depth courses are held at their headquarters in Lake Havasu City, Arizona; but their entry level EFI-101 or more advanced Dyno Tuning Workshop are held at a number of shops across the United States throughout the year, including Seattle, Memphis, Atlanta, Miami, San Francisco, Milwaukee, Richmond, Houston, and Oklahoma City just to name a few.
