    No one would try a method like that for a process that needs to be controlled to a high degree. Not on engine builds, not on valve builds, not on a submarine, not on an aircraft... no one. We use...

    Yup.
  3. Extrapolating nozzle flow rates based on pressure...

    Extrapolating nozzle flow rates based on pressure is really REALLY a function of the nozzle design. On one project I did, increasing pressure from 50 to 150 psi (3x pressure) resulted in a real...

    Nah, he agreed with you. It does happen every now and then lol.

    500 whp is a very lofty goal for stock turbos. Meaning, just because one guy did it doesn't mean it's a good idea or a recipe for any form of longevity. The ptbi will fuel 500 whp no problem. A...

    Chris;

    I hope you had a great weekend. I took a new girl up to Flagstaff, did some hiking, had awesome coffee, walked in the rain, spent some quality time between the sheets, and am feeling both...

    Chris; No disrespect taken, however, agree to disagree. I quickly skimmed over your wall of text. I'd suggest you do some basic research on pulsations in pumping systems, and there are a few useful...
  9. Pulsations in the fuel system, can reduce pumping...

    Pulsations in the fuel system, can reduce pumping efficiency/capability even on a positive displacement pump significantly -over 10%. Ask too much, fuel pressure crashes and it's going to take a...

    There is a lot of cynicism, yes, but when someone does something that's way out of the realm of normalcy, typically those extraordinary results have more than some cursory words describing them. I...

    The stock HPFP is a positive displacement 3 piston pump with bellows. You can play with pump efficiency by optimizing the control valve settings to it, and you can ride the threshold of pump...

    Something appears to be amiss fueling wise. The stock hpfp, as we know it, cannot supply that much fuel with air/fuel ratios comparable to what we've been seeing. It's either very lean, using a...

    There is nothing to be concerned with as long as you install it properly. All lines are appropriate for the pressures and environment that we're using them in. Steve is, in fact, meticulous, and my...

    Less power. Better transient response. Not N54 application (yet), still a relatively new design. The idea was decreased "time to torque" for tiny displacement motors to increase drivability. I.e....

    Rescaling the map sensor flash only can maintain all of the failsafes, just pushes up the limit. Having the DME ignore boost above ~22 psi is a different animal, I'm unsure if those failsafes are...

    Some issues with drawing in CO2 through the air filters. An intercooler sprayer isn't a bad idea but by the time you get around to having it all complete and functioning well, 9 times out of 10 you...

    Oh, gotcha. If you don't want to fill a meth tank, that's one reason. E50 + 100% meth would be potent, I'm sure. This particular product atomizes much better than typical meth systems, it has...

    Anyone can run 100% E85... the question is, how much boost can you run, at what air fuel ratio, with that fuel? PTBI lets you max out stock turbos on 100% E85 with middle of the road a/f ratios. No...

    I am one of the engineers/developers of it, and I use it with E60 all the time. E30/40 is fine.

    One of the primary goals was to be able to run stock turbos (within reasonable boost ranges... i.e....
