test n tune video

I got to do some testing last night with the new injector . I let off the button on the top amber and just floored it when the bottom amber came on. I was doing this to eliminate any questions of it loading up on the 2 step because I was tuning it in.

I will say I am not overly impressed with the injection so far , but I don't feel it is tuned in properly yet. So far the injection runs cooler and burns about twice as much alcohol and is slower than my quick fuel carb . I am sure its a little fat and will keep on tuning.

They say injection is easier to tune than a carb, thats a bunch of bs.

Keep jacking with it Randy, you'll get there.

Thats a pretty tough question Nick . This injection works mainly off of pressure and allows unlimited tunability.

The throttle response is unbelievable , but that don't mean squat when you are leaving off of a transbrake at 5000 rpm or so.

What it does allow you to do is leave with a super rich tune off the line and it builds cylinder pressure, you clean it up in the upper rpm range with a high speed lean out.

I like it and I like my carb too .

Gotta lean it out with the cable when not making the pass or in the waterbox, or you will go through the fuel.........

That's why I like my Faith Air induction so much,Tweetybird only uses 2 quarts of alky on a 1/8 mile pass The throttle response is unreal on the injection though!!

That's a nasty BaaaaD engine IMO. 951 Hp (on gasoline), out of a P-51 headed 562 is nice I hope Lem, Jet Boat Bob and I, get to build some more of them, because it's a good race proven combo. Randy took it to the semi-finals of Super-Pro at the BB Ford Bash, then a couple of weeks later he won the Dixie Door Slammers event in Tennessee. Keep up the good work Randy & Becca!
