Lower Hutt, New Zealand
Do you want to learn how to tune engines like a pro?The world of performance engine tuning can be confusing and daunting. We find many keen novice tuners or performance enthusiasts who would love to pursue a career in engine tuning, but don’t know where to start. If this sounds like you then read on!
STM’s EFI Tuning Stage 1 course runs for 1 day and focuses on engine tuning theory backed up with a practical dyno demonstration(video) of the concepts taught. The course begins with the basic operation of the 4-stroke engine, and then moves onto the fundamental components of a modern electronic fuel injection system. Each input and output in the EFI system will be discussed with an emphasis on a friendly atmosphere which encourages discussion and interaction between you and the tutor.
After covering the basics, the course moves on to the techniques used to actually tune the engine. These are the hard-learned lessons that have come from STM’s experience tuning literally thousands of engines over the last 11 years. We will show you the tricks of the trade which let us achieve a perfect tune without risking damage to your engine.
In particular we will concentrate on the following areas:
