SELECTING THE RIGHT INFINITY ECU
The Infinity ECU is designed for maximum flexibility across many types of applications. It is available for a wide variety of vehicles as either a Plug & Play Application or Supported Application. Certain independent tuners have integrated the Infinity onto 3rd Party Applications and we have provided a list as a service to our customers (please read our disclaimer on this page).
Choose the ideal Infinity ECU based on your application’s ignition and fuel injector output requirements using the Infinity Specifications Chart, and then choose between our available Plug & Play or Universal harnesses to create the Infinity solution that suits your specific needs.
SUPPORTED vs. PLUG & PLAY APPLICATIONS
The Infinity ECU delivers comparable tuning functionality regardless of application type. It is available for a wide variety of applications in two distinct forms:
Infinity Supported applications refer to an engine family or cam/crank pattern for which the Infinity ECU has been tested and validated to run. However, certain ancillary vehicle systems (such as factory instrument clusters, automatic transmissions, and certain drive by wire throttles), may not be supported.
The setup Wizard included with the InfinityTuner user interface software dramatically simplifies initial tuning configuration to help ensure successful initial startup for Supported applications.Wiring is required for Supported applications. AEM offers Universal wiring harnesses in several iterations and detailed application-specific wiring instructions/schematics.

AIRFLOW MODEL BASED CALCULATIONS
Infinity’s airflow model based systems greatly reduce the amount of time it takes to set up and tune an engine by eliminating many of the lookup and trim tables (correction tables) necessary in previous generation ECUs…
The Infinity’s airflow based, or volumetric efficiency (VE) based models calculate an engine’s fueling requirements in real time based on an advanced algorithm that has various modes for calculating air flow. Once the user inputs an engine’s basic parameters (displacement, number of cylinders, injector size) and methods of calculation for airflow they can begin tuning the engine’s VE table in the software.
InfinityTuner USER INTERFACE SOFTWARE
InfinityTuner is optimized for speed and performance. The software has the power to control a multitude of features found in today’s modern racecars, and features an advanced tuning Wizard to reduce set up time...
An ECU Setup Wizard takes complex calibration setup work and simplifies it through a smart interface that features tabs for quick set up of vital engine functions. Each tab includes a description of the function.
InfinityTuner software is highly flexible. It allows you to choose from multiple strategies for boost control, idle control, traction control, charge air temp blend, launch control and more.
All controls in the Infinity ECU are synched to logged data which allows users to edit calibration data during log playback to minimize tuning time. AEMdata, AEM’s advanced data logging analysis software is also included for more detailed review of data logs.
ULTRA-HIGH RESOLUTION FUEL CONTROL
The Infinity ECU calculates injector pulsewidth in units of 1/10th of a microsecond (0.0000001 second). Individual cylinder fuel trim is included and user adjustable vs. engine RPM.
ACCURATE IGNITION TIMING UNDER ANY CONDITION
InfinityTuner software features several 3D ignition trim maps (coolant and air temp based), and its back-end timing code is tested to 100,000 RPM. Individual cylinder ignition trim is included and is user adjustable vs. engine RPM.
FLEX FUEL COMPENSATION
Flex fuel compatibility is included, and the Infinity is able to make automatic adjustments for ethanol content in the fuel with the addition of an ethanol content sensor (sold separately)…
The Infinity can be set up to compensate for changes in fuel stoichiometry based upon ethanol content, in addition to changing the closed loop air/fuel ratio, ignition timing, and boost targets.
The Infinity has the ability to run two separate fuel types simultaneously through staged fuel injection.
DRIVE BY WIRE CAPABILITY
The Infinity ECU can control one or two drive by wire throttle bodies and includes auto calibration for DBW sensors…
It includes idle control, an optional drive by wire rev limiter (for use as a launch limiter, holding limiter or in conjunction with other rev limiters) and necessary failsafes based on redundant sensor inputs. Traction control via drive by wire will be added in the future at no additional cost for existing Infinity ECU owners.
The Infinity ECU uses a coolant temp based idle control model…
It includes an RPM vs. Engine Speed Rate idle decel feature that provides accurate control of the IAC and allows for adjustment of engine braking. The Infinity’s idle TPS offset provides smoother off idle drivability when necessary, like driving in the pits or return lane following a drag race pass.
MULTIPLE BOOST CONTROL STRATEGIES
Choose from time, gear, vehicle speed, switch based or other boost control strategies…
The Infinity’s boost control includes two 2D base duty tables and two 2D boost target tables. The secondary tables can be used as trims or adders, and users can choose from multiple variables including IAT, MAP, Baro (kpa), throttle %, flex fuel content, boost target and more. Please visit our Forum for an in depth review of the Infinity’s boost control capabilities.
The Infinity’s software allows you to run a single-stage wet or dry nitrous set up (four-stage available soon)…
This feature includes nitrous fuel enrichment, ignition timing retard and solenoid triggering in addition to more advanced controls like a timing delay to account for nitrous bleed out. This feature can also be set up for water/methanol injection tuning. Four stage nitrous will be upgraded for free for existing Infinity users when it becomes available.
VARIABLE VALVE CONTROL
Set base duty, limit and VVC cam target for up to four cams through the InfinityTuner Wizard…
The VVC control offers independent Intake and Exhaust cam position 2D target tables and control of up to four camshafts, each on an independent closed-loop PID loop for accurate target tracking.
The Infinity includes up to four separate ignition maps, four separate Lambda target maps and two separate VE maps with independent values. Using AEM’s 12-Position Trim Pot, this powerful feature delivers many valuable tuning options including…
- Multiple maps for multiple track conditions (practice map, rain map, qualifying map, etc.)
- Change boost target
- Change Lambda target
- Change ignition target
- Tie boost, Lambda and ignition targets together and change them all
- Ideal for test mapping during tuning
- Change boost base duty
- Control PWM switches (like water/methanol injection)
- Choose between 2 VE tables for VVC or when restrictors are in place
- Blend by VVC cam position
INTEGRATED ENGINE PROTECTION STRATEGIES
Multiple engine protection strategies are incorporated into the Infinity ECU…
Available strategies include:
- MAP (create limp mode using Assumed Pressure Ratio table to compensate for pressure if sensor fails or goes out of range)
- Overboost (fuel cut until boost/throttle decreases)
- Fuel pressure (injector flow compensated for variations in pressure, sensor required)
- Oil pressure (trigger warning light or limit RPM if pressure drops below set value, sensor required)
- RPM (rev limiter)
- Coolant or oil temperature dependent engine rev limiter (fuel and ignition cut, sensor required)
- Knock control with individual cylinder windowing, signal conditioning and feedback
- Lean protection (fuel and ignition cut)
The Infinity’s diagnostics software can be configured to constantly monitor signal and current quality to alert the user of a potential issue before it creates the potential for engine damage.
DUAL INTERNAL WIDEBAND CONTROLLER
A 2-channel Bosch wideband controller is built into the Infinity ECU for twin turbo or individual bank exhaust gas measurement. On board control of the sensors ensures reliable sensor operation and intelligent control of closed-loop feedback.
LIGHTNING-FAST DATA LOGGING
Infinity’s logging feature supports 2 different file systems. A custom file system option will support 100 channels at up to 1 KHz/channel using an included high performance USB flash drive…
A standard FAT file system will support 10 channels at up to 1KHz, 20 channels at up to 500Hz or 100 channels at up to 200Hz. The Infinity includes a 4GB USB memory stick and the user can replace this with up to 64GB. Additionally, the user can also log direct to the PC at up to 500Hz when connected.
What’s the difference between FAT and RAW file systems? For the purposes of the Infinity, both have inherent advantages based on what is most important to you. File Allocation Table (FAT) file systems (commonly FAT 32) will log 10 channels at up to 1KHz/channel and 100 channels at up to 200Hz/channel. They are also readable by most PCs when you remove them from the Infinity comms port and insert them into a PC USB port, allowing you to access the data remotely from the ECU. With a quick switch of the file extension after downloading, users are able to access their data in InfinityTuner or AEMdata.
The custom file system for Infinity data logging (referred to as RAW) is much faster; able to log up to 100 channels at 1KHz/channel. It is also more robust in its ability to capture data. If for any reason the memory device is prematurely removed from the comms port on the Infinity it will retain the data until a few seconds before it was removed. With a FAT file format, if it is removed before being fully written to the storage device all data could be lost. However, unlike the FAT file format, you cannot remove the memory device and insert it into a PC to see the data as Windows will not recognize the custom format. This means that while your data is safe if it is prematurely removed, you will need to have it installed in the ECU and connect your PC to the ECU to download it.
AEMdata DATA ANALYSIS SOFTWARE
AEMdata provides an advanced interface for viewing the log files generated by the Infinity ECU.
DUAL KNOCK SENSING
Dual knock signal conditioning circuits allow for precise measurements of knock levels. The Infinity can utilize both Piezoelectric and Flat Response type knock sensors.
The Infinity ECU is constructed using automotive-rated components designed to withstand the harshest racing environments…
Its aluminum enclosure and IP67-rated connectors are sealed to make it suitable for engine bay mounting. An advanced wear-leveling strategy for flash memory ensures a lifetime of reliable performance.
The Infinity ECU is able to transfer data via industry-leading High Speed USB at up to 480 Mb/second. It features a fully-sealed IP67 communications connection system.
Infinity is AEMnet enabled and will soon communicate with all AEMnet-equipped devices. It is able to output to many 3rd party dash/logger devices (not all 3rd party dash/logger devices may be supported). Call AEM technical support at (310) 484-2322 for more information.
A powerful input simulator feature is included that allows the user to simulate input channels to the Infinity EMS. By simulating operating conditions users can validate tuning changes before running the engine.
Infinity uses the latest printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing processes for Ball Grid Array (BGA) and Quad Flat No-Lead (QFN) components. Its PCB size is roughly 5.5” x 5.5”.
