EFI or Carb


GT4Point6

Recommended Posts

First post. Searched with little results.

 

My question is about the 5.0 mustang fuel delivery:

What are most mustang drivers running? Speed density, Mass Air or Carb?

HP/TQ numbers of each.

 

Thanks,

Richard is only slightly biased - I am sure that has a lot to with the fact that he was dropped on his head repeatedly as a child -

 

I've always run mass air - The Trask's "Musturd",Tony's old car before he sold it to Frank and Sam Stowell's Capri were the only carb cars that I am aware of.

There aren't too many car'bed Camarobirds floating around either. I think the only two carb'ed GM cars are the Graves/Heldin car and Bergman's TransAm. The rest are EFI.

 

IMHO, I'd take EFI . .

I agree with Nick, EFI is really the way to go if you build up a new car. We are making good HP with the carb but still have a few drivability/tuning issues to deal with and not the same throttle resonse as the EFI cars.( However if sure simplifies a lot of the electrical stuff running a carb). I would like to test our car with a properly built A-sedan carb built for roadracing and see what it would do.

Per, I'd like to see you test an A-Sedan carb too! Not knowing their rules... what is the diff? Nick Littleton would be a good person to talk to as he, a former carbed Camarobird CMCer, is now running American Sedan. He was plenty fast in the CMC version which had 3.73s, my car had 3.92s last season. I'm now trying 3.54s. We'll see how that goes!
