Calibrated Success EFI Training - Tuning - Consulting So you've decided that fuel injection is for you, but want to know more. Many questions surround what appears to many as more of a black art than science. Engine tuning used to be the hallowed ground of vehicle engineers and cutting-edge hot rodders. For years, the carburetor filled the needs of enthusiasts and provided simple adjustments at the end of a flat-bladed screwdriver. But today, electronic controls for engines are the norm. Even the casual enthusiast who actually drives his favorite hot rod on the streets can easily see the benefit of increased precision when he fires the car up for the first time each spring. A properly tuned EFI system rarely needs anything more than the turn of the key to come to life.
Greg Banish is a mechanical engineer and motorsports enthusiast who works as an OEM calibrator by day and professional engine tuner in his spare time. After studying for a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering at GMI Engineering & Management Institute (Kettering University), he wrote his thesis on vehicle instrumentation and measurement. Putting this education to practical use, he founded his own performance shop outside of Detroit and has served local enthusiasts, shops, automotive companies and OEMs. Greg spent three years working for General Motors as the hybrid powertrain calibration engineer responsible for the Chevrolet Volt fuel economy and emissions. Now he works for Lotus Engineering as the senior calibration. He is a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers and SEMA.
To this day, he continues to serve the performance industry providing EFI calibration and consulting services to shops as well as authoring two books on EFI tuning. (Engine Management: Advanced Tuning, Designing and Tuning High-Performance Fuel Injection Systems, both from CarTech books S-A Design Series) With over a thousand aftermarket calibrations performed, he has had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of engines and control systems.
