Not to be a twit BUT...

Not to be a twit BUT they are electric MOTORS not engines, they do not produce their own power.

Just thought I would mention it.

The forum is "Modern Engine Electronics", refering to electronic controls on automobile engines.
Motors are electric , engines burn fuel, both convert a source of energy to a kinetic energy or form of work ie: horsepower. Neither one "Makes" its own power, they both consume it.
Not sure if your post was intended for this forum or ???

By your definition, would gasoline powered engines also not be engines? They do not produce their own power. It is the fuel which carries the energy...not the engine. Same for the electric "motor". Both, it seams to me, are simply tools for conversion of a fuel or an energy.

I also read it as electric, not electronic.

this will be some good reading for me.
i'm very interested in LS engines, and I definitely want Fuel Injection (other than F.A.S.T. EZ EFI) on my 496.
but feel like its more than i want to deal with (on the edges of my comfort zone)

I'm working on a 496 injected engine also. I'm using an LS1 ECM to run mine.

I haven't much of a clue myself but I just GOT to learn it to enjoy the new motor.

Uh-oh, is it a motor or engine?

Glad to see this new sub forum.

31 Ford here With 88 Gm TPI Engine/Motor, Pretty much just up and quit and will only start with WOT. Maybe the GM engine fighting with the Ford chassis donknow. I'm just now learning all the Abbreviations and what they do out of necessity, Man, MAP, IAC, TPS, ECM, etc etc..what they do, and what values each should be at, Overwhelming for this old dog, but slowly getting it! This I'm sure has been heard before, that old carb. is looking mighty fine about now. First time in 20000 miles the car has let me down and no way to fix it on the road., So i'm glad to find this thread and see what I can learn! Thanx Brian

"The forum is "Modern Engine Electronics", refering to electronic controls on automobile engines."

NO it is not, it is still listed as "Modern Electronic Engines". OOPS

"Motors are electric , engines burn fuel, both convert a source of energy to a kinetic energy or form of work ie: horsepower."

Electric motors, gasoline engines
Rocket motors, steam engines. OOPS

"By your definition, would gasoline powered engines also not be engines? They do not produce their own power. It is the fuel which carries the energy...not the engine."

Without an oxidizer and ignition system the fuel just sits in a tank. OOPS

"Thanks. No humour allowed. I'll try to remember that in the future."

Glad someone got it.
(with this many OOPS's I should run for President)

I'd like to see the forum titled "Modern Engine Electronics", but it's not. Maybe you could fix it?

Or perhaps it could be called something like "Electronic Engine Management" or "Electronic Engine Systems".

Calling it Electronic Fuel Injected Engines would avoid confusion.

+1 to both. The title just reads odd. My initial thought when I first read it was "electronic motors?"

Personally, Cobalt's suggestion of "Modern Engine Electronics" or 123pugsy's "Electronic Fuel Injected Engines" both sound fairly all-encompassing.


Btw, this sub-forum is an excellent addition.

I like engine electronics best- because not all electronic need to be used on fuel injected engines nor do they need to be permanently installed on a running engine.

As far as motors vs engines- there is no definitive difference- get over it.
