Here’s where much of this started. After a formal engineering education and several years of running a high performance business, it became time to put some of the lessons I learned down in writing in an effort to speed up the learning curve for others. The resulting text later became “Engine Management: Advanced Tuning”. My publisher picked the title, not me, but the content was all mine. In this book, the reader will find many of the universal truths of electronic fuel injection that stand the test of time.
With many great reviews and demand for more from both the publisher and fans, I wrote the second book with a greater focus on the speed density systems that are commonly seen in many standalone ECUs. Again, the publisher chose the title, but I was given free reign on content. Naturally, the science had to drive the discussion, so it gave me a chance to put some of the equations I had been using in the live classes at that point into print. This book walks the reader through a practical application of the math to a running engine. Starting from PV=nRT, it walks all the way to cylinder air mass and injector on time as calculated in common speed density systems.
Coming in 2022: Book #3 will dive into the world of OBD-ii diagnostics, emissions, testing, and more. This book will explain the connection between current emissions requirements and on-board diagnostics. It will also give the reader a solid background on how the diagnostics work to help make the right repair the first time based on not only stored codes, but data that is available through the OBD-ii system. It also covers many of the concerns facing high performance enthusiasts and tuners in light of current emissions enforcement efforts.
