Default FlyEFII

Hi there

Does anyone know this?
https://www.flyefii.com/products/efii-systems/

I'm considering to purchase a fuel injection and ignition system, but have few information about the various systems reliability and performance.

Can anyone help?

Thks

Welcome to VAF.

FlyEFII is a paid advertiser on this site and I believe a number of people have used this system.

Do a search in this forum for EFII or system32 and there are a number of discussions. You are sure to get a number of responses on this system (and possibly regarding the SDS system as well).

I can't speak to either one personally, but do plan an EFII system from either SDS or FLYEfii. From what I can tell they seem both vendors have a very good setup and just depends on what you are looking from the system.

Carlos----definitely takes some prior planning for the systems. More involved plumbing, duplex sleector valve, AND if you are putting it a 6A it will be a task, since there are differences between the 6A and the 7A that is more common with this type of system.

Carlos, welcome aboard

Whatever you do for the EFI, pay attention to what Tom said about planning the fuel system to support it.

Carlos,

I put an EFII in my 6A. Tom mentioned that it is a "task". I have no point of reference for a 7A, but I installed it in mine. If you get serious, PM me and we can discuss over the phone. There are things I can share from my learnings. You can also look at my website. Many pictures.

Paul

The page you linked shows a system no longer available. That system was based on re-badged SDS ECU, in a model now considered obsolete by both SDS and EFII.

EFII is introducing its first ECU, called System 32. There are beta units out there, but I don't know if the system is actually available at this time. There is no manual for download, so not much is known beyond promotional material:

SDS has been building EFI ECU's for a long time:
