I have never performed that type of thing, unfortunatley. I work on the general publics rides and dont have a lot of time (or $$) to buy equiptment and spend the time to learn those types of procedures.
Seems to me a laptop and tuner program is needed, a passthru device to connect to the car is also needed. the passthru devices seem to be pretty spendy for a small town boy like me.
I have a pretty good grasp on OEM systems and CAN systems and performing diagnostics and repairs, I never had an opportunity to dive into custom and performance work.

What type of vehicle/year are you working on. I have a bit of experience with tuning and changing MAF tables, scalers, timing, fuel trims, etc.

These guys to me are about as good as it gets as far as building your own engine management system..Just getting their manuals is an education in itself..

I will agree, but I would also caution anyone looking to start a project like this that it is not as easy as it looks or sounds. I did 3 start-from-scratch builds with another diy source controller and it was a nightmare. I did learn alot and eventually got them all to work...only to upgrade to another one two times

When I was planning on converting a LS6 454 over to fuel injection back in the early 90's, I talked with the boys from Electromotive when I was at SEMA. They're theory at that time for my project of fuel and spark management was using their box and have a chip burnt for it after I worked out the tables.

Over the past 20 years, I was hoping that technology would have advanced itself to a point where tabling would be passe' and a self-learning programming would have taken over similar to what F.A.S.T has done.

If I wanted to do the same conversion to EFI and spark management, what is the consensus of the Group today and how would you handle it?

I think FAST is pretty good, but I have not used one personally. There are some universals out there like AEM as well that I think are pretty good. I dont know that there is a single answer to the questions. It depends alot on experience and knowledge of the builder and the engine in question. I would tell most people to stick with oem or kit type systems if at all possible. The low budget appeal of the diy scene is always there, but some folks are just not going to be capable of doing it successfully.

Yup! What you working on? What software you using?

There's a ton of EFI information, conversions, bin files and tuning at:

Megasquirt is way cool but you can do all that with GM junkyard parts. Tuning GM OBDI systems is easy and cheap.
