    Check out the newest EFI

     



    It's from FAST, so the quality is there as well as the tech help!!! The new system is called the Sportsman XFI, it's one step above the EZ system and offers a whole host of tuning options and data acquisition!!! Neat system!!!!!

    Here's the link;

    Dave - I looked at that the other day while on the FAST site. I'm wanting to get into EFI. I've spent my life learning to tune a carb (still learning too) and I guess it's time to learn something new.

    I like that it has the self tuning capability of the EZ system, but you can still make adjustments if you want to. Sounds like a good starting place for a newbie like me. Has room to grow, too. Works with boosted and nitrous setups.

    I like the write-up on it, and the tech information from FAST.... Sure seems to be a nice place to start for EFI on "tween" (someplace between street and race) engine!!!

    Competition improves the breed. Between FAST, MSD, Edelbrock, and Holley, along with a handful of lesser knowns, this technology keeps marching along. In a way I'm surprised it's taken as long as it has to evolve, but hey, they're moving quickly now. Perhaps the cost differential (perceived or real) is what has held it back, or perhaps a level of technophobery (probably combination).

    It appears to my less than all knowing eyes that the market now is offering enough variety in system configuration that it's easier to configure/purchase a system with a wide variety of motivating criteria. Earlier this year even an old stick in the mud Luddite like me stepped up to the Atomic EFI system when one of our members put an unused complete system up for sale here. While it lacks some of the sophistication of this FAST product, it is well suited for a standard, "cookie cutter" hot rod application for street use only. My choice was driven (not solely) by the simplicity of the wiring harness provided. I hate cluttery, rats nest wiring in an engine compartment, and covers to hide a myriad of "stuff" from view just isn't my thing on a rod. Common to most of these newer systems is the included LED screen for tuning rather than the previously preferred use of a laptop computer. I suspect the vendors learned that in a strong majority of applications the vast number of choices the laptop enabled were just overload for the typical customer. Now there are a set number of parameters to choose from that target, probably, 90-95% of the users. That along with designed in self learning features make initial start up and fine tuning comparatively easy for the less than engineer types.

    What a time we live in.

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Luck occurs when preparation and opportunity converge.
