If you’re like most automotive enthusiasts, the thought of working with EFI might not send shivvers up your spine, but it does come with an air of mysteriousness. To help enthusiasts get over their aversion to electronic fuel squirting, the folks at FAST invite you to attend one of their EFI courses. These highly popular fuel injection training programs include courses that are tailored to the participant’s experience level.
EFI Fundamentals 101
This is a course for anyone that is considering the inclusion of EFI on their previously carbureted engine. During this course, instructors will teach basic terminology, the components that make EFI, installation fundamentals, and show live demonstrations of both the EZ-EFI and XFI systems. This is not just a book reading course, as participants will have the opportunity to practice setting up and troubleshooting each system.
Intro to XFI 201
If you have a basic knowledge of EFI and the fundamentals class is information you already know, then the Intro to XFI 201 course might be for you. To attend this class, you must have either completed EFI Fundamentals 101, or have equivalent EFI experience with any brand. This course revolves around the XFI Sportsman Engine Management System to show participants the best installation practices, system setup, and tuning processes by engaging in hands-on experience.
Advanced XFI Tuning 301
If you have completed both of the aforementioned courses, then this is your next course. This is the most advanced training that FAST offers, and is designed for racers and tuners who are familiar with the XFI system. This course covers wiring theories, ignition strategies, boost and nitrous controls, staging controls, Intelligent Traction Control, and dynamic power management.
FAST Ignition Basics 101
Their is also a FAST course to give insight to those interested in learning more about ignition systems. That is where FAST Ignition Basics 101 comes in.
