Starting off, we will monitor basic vitals such as oil pressure, oil and water temperature, and air/fuel ratio through AEM's sensors. We will set warning parameters on our AEM CD7 dash (coming soon in the next article!) so that we can easily monitor vitals while on track. A lot can be told with these basic readings, and it will allow us to have another method of reviewing engine health after each event. We can store the logs and compare things such as oil pressure levels per RPM range over time. Monitoring this data over the course of time can help us catch engine inefficiencies which can lead to catastrophic failures. The earlier we are able to catch such data, the less expensive the outcome can be. Since the F Series motors are finicky to oiling in general and since a good F22 crank can be hard to come by, this data management will be crucial to the team in addition to normal preventative maintenance.
Installation of the Infinity is also easy by using one of the OEM mounting points and provided double-sided Velcro tape that adheres perfectly with the shape of the S2000 chassis in that direct area and shape of the new ECU.
With the Infinity and plug and play harness installation complete, we can now move on to wiring our sensors!
