The first camp are the hard liners who had. drunk the punch long ago….theit magic box works and of course if you have it and it works its what everybody should have……right?
The 2nd and 3rd camps are more recent converts finding that technology has triumphed past having to read a Microsoft manual. I was into consumer electronics when the chip came on the scene and blew the stereo world off the planet……..the similar sort of advancements have now made aftermarket fuel injection to the simple man.
The whole thing that made this possible was the proprietary software for the learning, active fuel injection systems in today’s new cars. The copywrites off the aftermarket industry took the learning software and BOOM our fuel delivery problems are finally addressed.
So, not talking down to the folks with those early systems those were trying to make things batter but it was the next generation of logic circuits and some deep thinking that have juiced up the punch and brother, if you drink THIS stuff you will KNOW things are better!
Why is fuel injection needed? I mean our beloved Qjets have seen our classic coaches keep the faith for many decades so in one way we feel obligate to our 4 holes juice squeezes. The problem is we’re not squeezing Apple’s anymore……theyre oranges now and the pearl are clogging up the hardware!
What made diesel engines viable? Pressure….superchargers and turbo……..diesel when pressurized is much more combustible are powerful……in an effort to reduce evaporation pollution, our fuel formulations today to not spontaneously evaporate like diesel at ambient pressure. Gasoline today need a to be pressurized and mechanically broken up to the 14.1 air to fuel ratio to burn efficiently……and that fact comes so true pulling mass.
This is why pressurized fuel injection will be….heck it already is, the future. Those early duely guys were right….and now they have completely answered the question for the aftermarket world.
So all fuel injection systems and experience have brought us to where we are today. Those early pioneers have shown the issues to make fi improved and now they are…….. Highly computer controlled, easier to install, trouble shoot and operate. No longer needing to hide away the electronics from the heat experienced in a typical engine compartment I wish Rostra cruise controls would do something about heat and their electronics! with taking the heat out of the intake with block off plate, heat no longer effects electronics and having the ebl system totally incorporated (not an add-on) into basic operation its no longer a big deal black box magic thing. Very DIY, FiTech or Sniper systems fill the bill today.
Our next roller cam 455 is being fitted on our driving test stand with the Holley Sniper system ….. Because of such an improvement we’re delivering fuel to it via the FiTech Forced Fuel system for our application (shallow sloshing tanks need it)Both systems need a constant fuel supply which the carb float bowls were put into a carb for. The Forced Fuel unit does that…………Both FiTech and sniper need are only 2 sensors installed into the motor…..water temp replacing the original “Christmas tree” sensor on the front of our intake and an fitting welded to 1 exhaust pipeactually the system comes with a bolt on sensor fitting……naaaaaa, have 1 welded in. On our “Mutcedes” test stain I can’t wait to dial in the Sniper system BEFORE we install it in the coach…..Hey Ross V., watch this! The EM-50 will benefit from all this work……stay tuned for this one!
So I hope this has taken away some of the prevention on what to do about you constant vapor loxk, fuel smell and poor performance.
I’ll be sure to keep you guys up as we put this all together.
Thanks for stopping by, come back again and see more about fuel injection……..
