    $High Dollar Injectors---Worth It?

    Doing some research on the latest 160lb/min - 1650cc/min injectors available, and came across the latest rave Injector Dynamic PN1700. and FIC 1650cc/min injectors. Both cost about $1400 for a set of 6. I do think these are both high impedance, which is not a requirement for the FAST...

    What size turbine wheel (Inducer) is needed to make 1000Hp at the tire?

    What is the smallest turbine wheel do you think can meet this Hp goal? Lets keep the compressor wheel under 82mm. What is the largest exhaust wheel you would go with to meet this goal and still have "decent" spool response? Thanks

    Loading effects on AFRs

    I have been thinking about some data logs I took of some runs on a back street near my house. The first log is were I did a nice linear roll into the throttle ion second gear. The tires hooked decently and I ran it up to about 6500rpm before shifting into third and letting out. In viewing the...
