Congradulations to the Greg Means racing team for winning the Nostalgia Eliminator I drag racing class at the Sacramento Funny Car fever race. Greg’s setup lasted to a final round win. Not too long ago, Greg took his team to a high altitude drag race track, adjusted for the altitude, and ran his number right out of the trailer. That level of preparation set him up for the win at that event as well. The team runs a supercharged small block V8 dragster, making over 1,000 HP with a very reliable and repeatable combination. His Enderle fuel injection is tuned by Ashlyn Means. Racecarbook.com and Airdensityonline.com are proud of the Means team in successful efforts such as these.
Mechanical fuel injection is holding its own against EFI and racing carbs in racing. It is simple, lower cost in many applications, and good for fuel pressure increases for more response & power. One recent application tested racing carbs, EFI, and mechanical fuel injection all on the same racing engine. Another recent application tested mechanical fuel injection against racing carbs in a factory developed combination. In both applications, mechanical fuel injection was good for about 5% more horsepower. Fuel pressure is limited in common EFI racing packages. Reduced flow from the venturi’s is a limit in carbs.
