Variable Cam Profile Fuel Map Tuning

Here is a good example of a fuel map with a huge spike and VERY tight RPM scaling. This is how a secondary cam lobe (low/high cam, VTEC, VVL, etc.) fuel map looks when matched with a roots type/twin screw super charger that creates full boost at any RPM. Normally the high cam transition area looks much smoother in a fuel map but the air flow from the SC changes that. You can also see how much boost drops when the engine switches cam profiles. While switching to the "high cam" at a lower rpm will move more air through the engine (thanks to the SC/cam profile) the power will not increase due to lack...

An Introduction to Motec Electronics, Setup and Tuning Benefits

For about 30 years, fuel injection has been on an unstoppable journey towards the replacement of the now obsolete carburetor. As the years went by and the benefits of electronic fuel injection became clear, there has been an emergence of manufacturers providing electronic control units of all shapes, sizes, and capabilities. These manufacturers have done everything they can to make calibrating an engine as easy and complete as possible sometimes succeeding, sometimes not.

While there are several companies that supply the hardware and software to tune an engine, in most...

Nissan SR20DET Dual Guide Shim Rocker Arm Conversion, Brian Crower Springs and Retainers and Tomei PonCam Install

The SR20DET is a formidable engine. With it's 2.0 liters of displacement coming turbocharged from the factory, it's earned it's place in automotive history. As people have pushed the SR20 to its limits, weak points in the engine's design have shown themselves and some of those weaknesses have proven to be remedied.

One of the biggest weaknesses the SR20 has is the valve train design. Surely the engineers at Nissan never anticipated the SR20 would turn into what it has, being the go to engine swap for drifters and...

AEM Infinity 506 and 508h Plug n Play S2000 F20 and F22

When Honda built the S2000 they did more than a few things right and provided a great platform to expand upon. One of the greatest features of the S2000 has to be the F series engines, IE: F20 and F22. Honda built these engines to make reliable power from 5000-9000rpm. While both engines produce over 200hp from the factory and pull hard all the way to redline (8500rpm for the F22 and 9000rpm for the F20) the high strung NA engine’s power band does leave the driver craving for more.

One of my personal favorite engines/cars to tune has to be a turbo S2000 or turbo F series...

What is Etuning and does it work?

Etune or Etuning: to create a custom ECU/EMS calibration/map for an engine/car through the internet (from a remote location). This process usually requires datalogs to be sent through email to the tuner who will review said datalogs and email an updated calibration/map back to the customer/car.

Why Etune?

Etuning has opened up opportunities for people in remote locations without any trusted local “tuner”. Brewed Etunes are a safe, reliable way to get your car professionally tuned no matter where you live. Over the past 7 years Etuning has become increasing popular with both our...

Drag style Anti Lag & No Lift Shift aka NLS

Brewed Motors specializes in ECU Tuning including Anti Lag and NLS contact 888-290-3213 or for Track support and ECU tuning/E-tuning

If you have ever driven a car with a turbocharged engine you understand the concept of “Turbo Lag”. Turbo lag becomes even more prevalent on small displacement engines using large turbo chargers to make big HP: VR38, 2JZ, RB26, K20, 4B11, B18, 4G63 are all regularly used with 67mm+ turbochargers to make 1000+ HP. The trick to making power is getting that big turbo spooled up (making target boost) and hold it there throughout an...
