Hey list
Poking around the Dialynx site led me to find that on their 300hp Sport-Q
copy, they use a Mercedes V8 fuel dist and flow plate. Being one that loves
to expirement with stuff this sparked my inerest. I've looked into it a
little bit, and I think I know exactly what to do. One question though, the
CIS expert people might know. The 5 cylinder fuel dizzy is from a 6 cylinder
but with one hole blocked off. Now with the V8, there would be 3 holes
blocked off. (these numbers are only for explanation) If the plate is pulled
up X amount, on the V8 it would squirt 10cc/min of fuel into each of 8
cylinders giving 80cc/min of fuel. Now if I have 3 blocked off, will it
squirt more fuel from the remaining 5 injectors, or would it still be
10cc/min per injector? If I am still flowing X amount of air, I would need
16cc/min flowing from each injector to equal the same 80cc/min.
Thanks for any help,
