Thumbs Up Licensed To Tune: The Name Is FREAKS, HORSEPOWERFREAKS

It is true, HorsepowerFreaks is now an authorized AEM Infinity Installer and Tuner. We can sell the AEM Infinity and Install them. AEM is selectively releasing the Infinity to tuners who can support their product and have gone through the AEM Infinity training in Los Angeles. Here's a link to the very few authorized dealers for the AEM Infinity.


But don't get too excited yet. No AEM dealer on this list is allowed to sell the AEM Infinity quite yet and they only exist with a Supra configuation and a generic or Supra harness. We are getting our first infinity early next week and it is going in John's E30 / S54 swap. AEM does have the plug n play S54 Infinity on their schedule but it will be a little while before everything gets figured out and released.

The AEM Infinity software uses VE based tuning and was quite easy to use. I was really impressed with how quickly you could dial a car in. The computer is so fast you can literally log every parameter in the system 1000 times per second. Then you can stop the log, click on a spot and flip through the maps and graphs and it follow along your tune and adjust any cell or cluster of cells you want.

The downside is much of the additional functionality and extra features we are used to seeing in our AEM EMS and are required to run our turbo kits isn't there yet. So we need some software changes as well. But it will come some day. Until then we will be playing around with the AEM Infinity here in Portland and will keep everyone informed as the eta when it will eventually be sold with our E46 M3 turbo systems. For those that have our current systems there may be a couple features you could get with the Infinity that you don't currently have such as Flex Fuel and Wheel speed based traction control. However you can still run E85 with our current system just not flex fuel, and you can run our current traction control which is acceleration based not wheel speed based. Would be nice to have a built in accelerometer wouldn't it? I asked in the training. ha ha.
