AEM Press Release – AEM Expands Porsche 997 Plug & Play Infinity ECU to Include Both Naturally Aspirated and Turbo Models!

May 22nd, 2015 by Ernest Lo

AEM_30-7109_30-3905

AEM has expanded its Porsche 997.1 Infinity ECU to include the 2005-’08 Carrera, Targa and GT3 in addition to the 2007-’09 Turbo and GT2 models. The Infinity ECU part number is PN 30-7109, and the new Infinity Plug & Play Adapter Harness for 997 Porsches is PN 30-3905. When combined with AEM’s Plug & Play Adapter Harness, the Infinity completely replaces the factory Porsche 997.1 ECU and does not require any additional accessories, sensors or modules for proper operation. Installation can be completed in about an hour when using all of the factory sensors.

Full Drive-by-Wire and VarioCam Plus Control
The Infinity ECU for Porsche 997.1 models provides two Drive-by-Wire profiles and complete control of the engines’ VarioCam Plus variable valve timing system for optimizing mid-range torque. The factory Sport button can be used to change DBW throttle curves.

Full Engine Support for Mass Airflow Sensors, Wastegate-less Turbos and More
AEM’s Porsche 997.1 Infinity ECU supports stock mass airflow (MAF) sensors and does not require the addition of a MAP sensor for operation. The factory wastegate-less variable turbine geometry turbos used in the 997 Turbo and GT2 are also supported, as are the factory electronic bypass valves.

The Infinity ECU also provides full support for:

  • Stock charge pressure sensor (Turbo models)
  • Engine compartment temp sensor
  • Engine blower fan
  • Electronic water pump (Turbo models)
  • Dual stock fuel pumps
  • Dual stock EGT sensors (Turbo models)
  • Dual stock wideband air/fuel sensors

Plug & Play Harness with Expansion Port
AEM’s sealed, weatherproof Plug & Play harness (PN 30-3905, sold separately) includes an AEMnet port for communication with other AEMnet enabled devices and CAN integration of the factory inputs for brake switch, clutch switches, cruise buttons, wheel speed sensors, sport button, coolant fans and A/C. The factory dash remains functional on all Porsche 997.1 models (coolant temp, oil temp, oil pressure, tachometer, dash lights/notifications, boost pressure readout on Turbo models, etc.).

An expansion port with a Deutsch DTM 12P connector is included in the Plug & Play Adapter Harness for adding common aftermarket sensors including fuel pressure, air inlet temperature, MAP, boost control solenoid (on Turbo models) and ethanol content. The expansion port also includes a sensor ground, 5v reference, power from relay and high side output for activating a solenoid, and switched inputs for boost target, no-lift shift, etc.

Racing Enabled Functions via Configurable Cruise Control Buttons
The Infinity programmable ECU delivers the ability to enable racing functions through the Cruise Control buttons on all Porsche 997.1 models. Using InfinityTuner software, users can now select from 8 modes for fuel maps, timing maps, Lambda target and more, and select maps on the fly using the factory cruise UP (+) and DOWN (-) buttons, eliminating the need to wire in and mount an ancillary position switch.

Users can configure the CRUISE CANCEL as a temporary three step limiter switch through the InfinityTuner software (vehicle speed or time after launch dependent), and can set rev limits at specific rpm by points or set a flat limiter and use it as an RPM hold for launches.

Launch anti lag, traction control slip target and rolling launch can also be programmed.

Traction Control
The Infinity is able to use the factory wheel speed/ABS sensors for traction control via fuel cut, spark cut, spark retard or retracting DBW throttle response on all 997 models. This eliminates the need to install additional sensors for traction control.

The CRUISE SET/HOLD can be configured as a traction control enable or disable button through the InfinityTuner software. Users can define a specific slip target for traction control in the software and turn it on or off using this button, or set two slip targets and use it for a mild and aggressive traction control strategy.

User Definable DBW Throttle Response
Using the Sport button, users can define throttle curves in the InfinityTuner DBW software and take full control of throttle response. This allows users to change throttle response rate on the fly and is ideal for setting rain mode throttle curves.

Fits In Factory ECU Location
AEM’s engineers have designed the Infinity ECU and harness to fit in the factory ECU location under the shelf to maintain overall weather resistance of the electronics.

Enhanced Security
Users can configure a number of analog, digital or CAN inputs to enable starting when using the Porsche 997.1 Infinity ECU and Plug & Play Harness. The supplied base calibration is configured to allow factory like starting with the clutch switch, or by pressing the cruise control enable button to effectively bypass the clutch switch. For added security, users can install a hidden switch to enable starting, and can fully disable the 2D Start Enable table and password protect it, preventing starting until the table is unlocked and re-enabled through password input.

Infinity ECU Features for Porsche 997.1 Turbo and N/A Models:

  • Base calibrations included for naturally aspirated and Turbo models
  • Supports all factory sensors including MAF sensors
  • Retains full functionality of factory gauges
  • Programmable Drive-by-Wire enabled through factory Sport button
  • Variocam Plus control
  • Multiple boost control strategies (Turbo models)
  • Map switching enabled through factory cruise control buttons
  • Three-step rev limiter enabled through factory cruise buttons
  • Traction control enabled through factory wheel speed sensors

  • Outputs to 3rd party dashes and data loggers
  • Industry leading data transfer speed (up to 480Mb/sec)
  • Integrated engine protection strategies
  • Sealed enclosure and IP67 rated comms ports

The Infinity ECU makes state-of-the-art ECU technology affordable for both professional teams and amateur racers. Built around a latest-generation 32 bit floating point 200MHz automotive processor and Real Time Operating System (RTOS), the Infinity is capable of processing 400 MIPS (millions of instructions per second). To our knowledge, the Infinity ECU currently has the fastest processing speed of any aftermarket Motorsports ECU available. This processing speed combined with a RTOS provides more accurate ignition timing for increased power, more responsiveness to truly custom tailor the driving experience to the driver, allows the Infinity to perform more computational features without a sacrifice in processing performance, and enables tuning of features and sub strategies without affecting other features and sub strategies. It allows you to do more, faster, in a more stable programming environment.

AEM Press Release – 2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata & Kia Optima Can Be Upgraded with AEM Street Legal Air Intake

May 18th, 2015 by Ernest Lo

AEM_22-685C

Sixth generation Hyundai Sonata as well as third generation Kia Optima models come standard with the 2.4-liter Theta GDI direct injection engine. This new engine makes more horsepower than the standard inline four that it replaces, however many 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima 2.4L owners are looking to add more power with an AEM cold air intake. AEM 50-state street legal air intake 22-685C differs from the alternate AEM cold air intake system available for 2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata & Kia Optima 2.4L models because AEM designers retained the use of the stock air filter box. Designing AEM cold air intake, number 22-685C, around the stock air filter box allowed AEM Intake designers to retain all factory connections, including stock emissions control equipment, to create a 50-state street legal air intake system. Installation of the AEM 2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata & Kia Optima 2.4L 50-state street legal air intake is incredibly easy compared to the alternate AEM cold air intake and only requires minimal tools with a reduced installation time.

The maze of accordion like intake tubing, and noise baffling installed at the factory adds a source of restriction to stock 2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata & Kia Optima 2.4L models. Included in the AEM 50-state legal air intake system for 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 Hyundai Sonata & Kia Optima 2.4L models is a free-flowing mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube. This new aluminum AEM air intake tube is designed to eliminate the restriction found in the stock air ducting. Restriction isn’t the only trouble with the stock air intake as it also creates turbulence in the incoming air. The mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube used in 22-685C has a smooth and consistent internal surface for reduced airflow turbulence. By reducing air intake tract restriction, and turbulence, AEM is able to increase horsepower, torque, acceleration, and provide better engine sound with the installation of an AEM 50-state street legal air intake system.

To complement the engine compartment of 2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata & Kia Optima 2.4L models the AEM intake tube is protected with a durable charcoal gray powder coat finish that will look great for years to come. An added benefit of the AEM mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube is that it will eliminate the stock intake noise baffling system. This will give 2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata & Kia Optima 2.4L models a sportier engine sound. To accompany that sportier engine sound AEM 50-state street legal Sonata and Optima air intake 22-685C is tuned to provide more horsepower and torque across the RPM range. Making usable horsepower increases in common RPM ranges is a design goal at AEM as this yields a performance upgrade that can be used even during normal driving situations.

AEM Dryflow air filters are performance designed to reduce restriction over typical paper air filters. The AEM 2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata & Kia Optima 2.4L 50-state street legal air intake system includes AEM Dryflow replacement air filter 28-20448. Using an AEM Dryflow replacement air filter helps to reduce the restriction inherent to stock disposable paper air filters as well as save time and money on maintenance. AEM Dryflow air filters are built with a robust synthetic air filter media designed to be washable and reusable. An AEM Dryflow replacement air filter can go up to 50,000 miles between cleanings under normal highway driving conditions. When it’s time to clean the air filter, it can be easily completed using AEM air filter cleaner, number 1-1000. Cleaning is performed by following a simple four step process. Because an AEM dry filter does not require oil, the air filter can be returned to service sooner and with less effort.

The AEM 50-state street legal air intake system 22-685C is an incredibly fast and easy upgrade for 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 Hyundai Sonata & Kia Optima 2.4L models. By retaining the stock air filter box, installation of AEM 50-state legal air intake 22-685C can be completed with minimal tools and less time than the alternate AEM air intake system for 2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L and 2011-2014 Kia Optima 2.4L models. Simple to follow step by step instructions are included and there is no need to make any other modifications to your Korean built car for increased performance. AEM performance air intake 22-685C is street legal in all 50 states for 2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L and 2011-2014 Kia Optima 2.4L models making this performance upgrade available in California and other states adopting California emissions standards. AEM is so confident in its products that AEM backs its Dryflow Air Filters and Cold Air Intake Systems with a lifetime limited warranty.
