42 n Performance & Hotrod Business n March 2015 PERFORMANCE AEM Performance Electronics Hawthorne, California Lawson Mollica Director of Marketing Our hottest Racing Electronics Product for 2015 is… … the Infinity standalone ECU for late- model EFI racecars, both domestic and import. We are very excited to parlay our successes last season on Ford Coyote, LS and Mopar Hemi and Viper engines from last season into the Infinity being the ECU of choice on more domestic racecars this season. The ATI Performance Products COPO Camaro set a record using the Infinity two years ago in NHRA SSA/A class, and was knocking on the door of a new record this year in SS/AAA with an 8.28 at 164 mph. The car has weight to lose and could see sub-8s this year. JPC Racing rolled off the trailer at the NMRA Bowling Green All Ford Finals last year with the first Infinity on a drag Coyote. With only some dyno tuning, the guys had set a record in Coyote Turbo with a 7.78 at 181 mph. Also, our ECU is being used by renowned engine builder Ray Barton Racing engines on its Hemi apps, and Nth Moto took its turbo Viper project to the Chicago Half Mile and came home with Fastest Forced Induction Vehicle, Fastest RWD Vehicle, Fastest Manual and Fastest Overall in its first outing. And those are just a few of the highlights … Its best features include… … everything you want in one system at a surprisingly economical price. The custom-designed software is flexible and runs on state-of-the-art hardware. It has a VE-based tuning model, a setup wizard that gets the tuner tuning faster, and a slew of features for today's modern racer. The Infinity has multiple boost control strategies, nitrous control, traction control, two-step, three-step, on-board UEGO sen- sors for closed-loop feedback when tuning, drive-by-wire control, and variable cam timing control up to four cams. It does flex fuel and is multi-fuel capable. The K&N American Iron series Mustang won regionals and runner-up at the nationals in its first season using an Infinity ECU.
