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 […]

E85 as a Racing Fuel

E85 is examined as a racing fuel.  E85 is a combination of ethanol and low octane gasoline.  Some racers report more power from E85 than from methanol.  On the other hand, when the Indy Car League converted from methanol to straight ethanol, dynamometer tests revealed a reduction in power after the conversion.

BRACKET RACE TUNING BLOWN FI THE DAY BEFORE

In our drag racing, we did use air to fuel ratio as a controlled value to get the engine into a linear range. That task is an extensive explanation through out writings. The linear range is where the engine is completely predictable. We achieved that very well in our racing.
