NHRA Wild Horse Motorsports preseason testing

Read those spark plugs for good NHRA drag racing preseason tuning; check https://airdensityonline.com/track-results/Wild_Horse_Pass_Motorsports_Park/ for current air density, density altitude, water grains, temperature, humidity, uncorrected barometer, wind speed, wind direction, dew point, saturation pressure, vapor pressure in imperial or metric units; yesterday’s record  and tomorrow forecast  already determined in air density units.  Check https://airdensityonline.com/free-calcs/ for free […]

Good Fuel Pressure with a New MFI System

Setting up a new MFI fuel system: main bypass adjustment to control the air/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 and fuel […]

Solutions to Idle Lope in Mechanical Fuel Injection

Customer Inquiry One of our customers recently inquired about idle lope in his funnycar dragster.  ‘What can I do to minimize idle surge on our funny car?  It’s difficult to stage at the starting line.  It has a Bruno (torque converter), Lenco transmission, Enderle Bird Catcher fuel injection hat, Enderle K type barrel valve with […]

Rons Low Cost Throttle Body Fuel Injection CFM & HP Capabilities

Rons Fuel Injection has provided us with air flow data for their throttle body setups.  We analyzed the power potential of these simple and very popular fuel injection systems. Racing engine size capabilities were determined at the flow CFM numbers provided by Rons Fuel Injection.  For 100% air density, horsepower capabilities were also determined. Rons […]

Top Notch Fuel Injection Tuning

Due to popular demand, we can now provide our ProCalc fuel injection jetting calculator already set up to run your fuel injection combination. This special service includes an extensive evaluation of your fuel injection setup and a custom fuel injection manual all about your engine. We have already done different fuel injection configurations, fuels, and […]

Fuel Injection Jetting: More Power

Pro-Calcs, our on-line MFI jetting calculator, was upgraded: 1. nitro methanol fuel mixtures; Pro-Calcs will determine jetting for nitro additions to meth’l from 0 to 100%; by volume or weight; also procedures for E85 and for gas. 2. correction to data conflicts from various jetting combinations 3. jetting printouts in CVS format to down-load into […]

Fuel Injection Setup & Tuning

… by Experience & Gut Feel Throughout the racing community, experience and gut feel are the most common methods for the selection of nozzle and jet size numbers for setup and tuning of mechanical fuel injection. It is a form of iteration or ‘connecting the dots’. Given enough time and expense, experience from good and […]

Uniform Standard of Units

Throughout our publications, air intake and fuel delivery values are converted to a ‘uniform standard of units’. That is “pounds per revolution”. The tuning demands for weight of air and weight of fuel become easy to understand, record, and analyze with that numerical value. And easy to change in fine tuning increments with this simple […]

Simple Fuel Pressure Gauge for Peak Fuel Pressure Reading

We used a simple fuel pressure gauge with a peak hold needle to record our highest fuel pressure value from a run.  The gauge is an all stainless, bottom 1/4NPT pipe, glycerin filled gauge with a maximum indicating needle. Glycerin filling is needed to dampen the needles from racer vibrations.  Stainless is needed for resistance […]
