The information age is here...with the proliferation of silicon based electronics, many meaningful physical attributes can be measured and manipulated to optimize the performance of an internal combustion engine. Sensors that measure temperature, pressure, acceleration, velocity, distance, gas composition, electromagnetic
frequency and intensity can be utilized to record exhaust gas temperature, inlet air temperature, engine coolant temperature, manifold pressure, fuel pressure, cylinder pressure, fuel flow, blower boost, engine torque, engine speed, ignition timing, exhaust gas oxygen content and much more. Properly sampled, conditioned and analyzed, this type information can be utilized to
safely optimize an engine combination in a matter of hours.
