Exciting news surrounded the AEM booth at SEMA 2011. AEM has just released that they will be coming out with an all new stand alone EMS ECU that will be called Infinity. AEM is clamming that this EMS will be a “game changer” when it comes to aftermarket ECU’s.

Motec, the current manufacturer to beat it seems, has had dominance over the high-end section of aftermarket automotive ECU’s for several years. This could all change if AEM gets their way.
