Recently Bob and Jennifer contributed content for an online publication. The amount of information they needed was minimal but Bob and Jennifer decided to expand on the content and provide it for anyone who might benefit. Key elements to engine tuning Optimum Air/Fuel Ratio in drag racing Is Ignition Timing the First Thing to Dial […]

Optimum Air/fuel ratio

Is there an optimal air/fuel ratio for drag racing engines? While air/fuel ratio is important for fuel system management, there is no one optimum air/fuel ratio.  These depend on engine type, fuel type, and engine modifications.  Below are examples of some optimum air/fuel ratios for specific drag racing engine examples: engine induction fuel air/fuel ratio […]

Low Cost 1,200 & 1,500 HP Blown Alcohol Racing Engine Combo’s

Disclaimer: All of the following engine profiles cannot be guaranteed to work adequately right out of the box.  In any of these engine profiles, jetting combinations were determined from similar running engine profiles previously analyzed with ProCalc.  Spark plug readings and engine temperature measurements are needed from incremental runs to determine if jetting adjustments from […]

Good Fuel Pressure with a New MFI System

Setting up a new MFI fuel system: main bypass adjustment to control the air to fuel ratio adjustment of the combination of the main bypass and nozzle sizes to maintain an optimum fuel pressure range from the lowest to highest engine RPM. Changing the main bypass jet for tuning affects the air to fuel ratio […]

Pulsing the Fuel Curve

Outlaw ProMod drag racing setups with mechanical fuel injection are hitting over 4,000 horsepower. The oversize PSI screw blowers at high overdrive ratios are common. These are not legal in most national drag racing classes. But in eighth mile outlaw racing, they are common. Horsepower levels in the 3,000’s are typical on the launch with […]

Kind words from Jim Kinsler

When we released our latest book, High Horsepower Tuning for Mechanical Fuel Injection, we received a very kind letter from Jim Kinsler of Kinsler Fuel Injection: To: Bob Szabo I have enjoyed reading through your “High Horsepower Tuning for Mechanical Fuel Injection”. Very nicely done! Bob, it is nice to see how thoroughly you do […]
