Fuel Injection

I have seen treeroot take on some obstacles and the only thing that stopped him was the carb.

Maybe you need a better fuel injection system

Love to have the simplicity of a carb. If I could rip off all the emissions stuff and go to a carb, I would in a heartbeat.

I know carbs and am pretty good at dialing them in. Had good luck with a Weber on an Isuzu, rejetted a work car that would die on left hand turns (NOT good) and had the thing running better than any other one in the fleet (this enterprise included precision drilling of the stock jets, not for the faint-hearted). Years of twiddling with motorcycles taught me a lot about carbs. They hold little mystery for me and perform well.

Go fuel injection.

What's funny is that the reason we exist is that for years they used magnetic tape, reel-to-reel even. But don't laugh, some things are not as advanced as you might imagine. Think Apple Macintosh Plus and you might (or might not) be on the right track for some parts of your hundreds of million dollar satellites.

BTW, it's been almost 8 years since I last worked on a carb, so the bad memories of flooding, vapor lock and elevation tuning are fading. Roll dream sequence. Actually, I like the EFI in my truck and once I get nailed what's causing the wonky idle and mid-throttle stumble, I'll be much happier. I'm pretty sure it's the fuel pressure regulator, but don't have the SST fuel pressure tester to check. If only Toyota had put a friggin' Schrader valve on the fuel rail, it would be simple. But no, gotta use the cold start injector port. :-/

Anyway, it's been said before and it worth repeating... IFS, er, EFI is for losers.

The launch vehicles I worked on had to have 1960s electronics custom manufactured because that was the design that was qual tested. Mac Plus? I only wish. What is the cost of sending a 3lb. NOT gate up in the air?!?

Drill your fuel rail and install a Schrader valve or pressure sensor.
