    Default neat self contained efi setup thatll handle blow thru

    Been reading about these on the various turbo forums and they seem like a great alternative. Throw a pair on a 2000hp tt bbc on racegas could be alot of fun and simple.

    That's pretty cool Tom.
    It looks like they incorporated the ECU right into the throttle body.

    Yes sir even comes with the o2 sensor, really not bad for 1400 and will support 1200 each. Shit a nice csu thatll support 1200 is over a 1200.00. Guy on ls site isbmaking 1100 with one and cut his track time a bit on the big end. Im a carb fan but these deals are so simple its sure making me consider one.

    IMPATIENT 1 do you actually know someone running 2000 HP with this setup on race gas? I talked to FiTech at PRI and was told that the oxygen sensor was not compatible with race gas so now I'm wondering. Also, I was also under the impression that 1200 max boosted HP was the limit with this setup.

    Is there any reason to believe this kit would NOT work on a boat engine? To be more specific, a boat engine with a banks turbo kit on it? Iím assuming if I call and talk to them they will tell me itís not intended for marine use and not give me any input. I really like this set up and it would be cool if it could work. What do you guys think?

    Theyre actually great folks that have welcomed challenges and if folks install bigger injectors in it theyll even help with tuning if needed. From what i can tell theyre doing their best to branch out into all areas.
    Not many companies welcome modification of their product, these guys dont care but wanna stay in the loop to learn more themselves which impresses me. They even used common easy to get sensors and injectors so you dont have to use them exclusively

    No o2 sensor is compatible with racegas for very long, leaded fuels kills most quickly. Yeah 1200 from a single is what its rated but turbo guys are saying two can be used. Still a new product so itll take awhile before wilder setups popup

    I thought I read that they advertised 1200 hp capability with two of those units on a roots blower.

    That would just be a function of injector size though.

    One tb will support up to 1200hp blowthru by injector size. Supposedly the injectors can be upgraded to larger ones but the 6an inlet on the rails is what limits it to 1200 worth of fuel flow. Im sure we ll see a few hit tracks this summer, the na guys are picking up on the big end with it over their dominator carb but that could easily be a crappy tuned carb with no afr reading ability vs efi.

    It looks like their top of the line unit uses 8 injectors for one throttle body.
    They have quite a few components tucked into that small unit.

    There still is going to be similar setup and tuning as with any other EFI system that needs to be done.
    When you start out the ECU doesn't know if it's on a V8 or a jet ski.

    I'm sorry, but if you have an engine that is capable of 1200hp. Please don't use this! Its like going out and buying an Aston Martin, then taking it down to your local oil and lube shop for maintenance.

    If you on are on a budget build, maybe 500hp or something, and want a simple way to get better function than a carb, then I suppose this might be worth it. Even for that kind of setup I personally wouldn't install or recommend it though. Its like all the rest of the garbage self learn throttle body setups. I'm an EFI snob though, so....

    Its not that bad and guys are seeing better tracks times. Link us to another efi setup for 1400.00 thatll support 1200hp blowthru and includes everything but the pump, im curious whatya can come up with.
