All modern cars use fuel injection to deliver fuel to a combustion engine. Proper fuel flow from the fuel tank to the engine is necessary along with computer(s) to precisely open and close the fuel injectors, control fuel pressure (direct injection) and update instantly with many different factors including elevation, density, heat, temperature and flow. This injection control needs to be injected at the most efficient time with the proper opening times in the combustion process which is set by the engine calibrator. Before you get to this point, you must first have a proper mechanical parts plan to supply enough fuel for this control.
There are many different strategies or Models on how to control fuel injection. Mass Air Flow and / or Speed Density being the most popular in the OE environment. As technology gets better so do ideologies of these Models. Volumetric Efficiency, Throttle Mass Flow and Manifold Gauge Pressure are just a few examples. These can be combined in a closed loop (ECU controlled with sensor feedback info) or open loop setting (calibrator controlled, not controlled by the ECU). The more resolution, the more precise outcome can be achieved. Emtron Engine Management, Pectel (Cosworth Electronics) and Link ECU’s do a fantastic job giving all the necessary tools for the engine calibrator to map an engine at the highest level. For example if needed, you can get creative and create custom strategies for control. This is the main reason FLI chooses to be manufactured trained and gives the necessary product support for each company.
The two main modern locations of the injectors in the engine are “port injection” where the injectors are mounted on the intake manifold and “direct injection” which are mounted in the combustion chamber. Direct injection is a popular replacement for port injection due to combustion efficiency. Direct injection allows fuel pressure to be from 500 PSI at idle to 2500+ PSI at wide open throttle! Better fuel economy and more power with less displacement can also be achieved using higher static engine compression.
