Engine Pro, Dart and FAST Talk Tech

Apr 14, 2010

Surrounded by more than 100 years of automotive history, Michigan engine builders and technicians learned about the latest advancements in engine technology at a seminar hosted by Engine Pro.

Founder and president of Dart Corp., Richard Maskin, was among the presenters at the seminar, held in late March at the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, Mich.

Maskin told the 100 attendees that one key component in achieving maximum engine power is to focus on cylinder wall finish to maximize ring sealing capabilities, according to a press release.

The latest advancements in fuel injection systems were outlined by EFI experts from FAST (Fuel Air Spark Technologies). Senior systems engineer, Lance Ward and lead technician David Page explained how monitoring engine sensors with a laptop computer and modifying the ECU to respond to various environmental conditions can increase performance in engines with EFI systems.

The engine technology seminar was the latest in a series of seminars hosted by Engine Pro to help engine specialists stay on top of advancements in their industry, according to the release.

Meanwhile, the Gilmore Car Museum opens its exhibit, “White Lightnin’ and Rollin’ Thunder-”The History of Stock Car Racing,” on May 1.
