I suppose I just prefer to take the counsel of someone who actually works in the industry as opposed to someone who regurgitates information online.

The train of thought applies to any topic.
Want to know about teeth, ask a dentist.
Need legal advice, call an attorney.

We're 16 pages into this latest $hitstorm and, aside from quite a bit of butthurt, not much has come of it.

I said throw a dom on it,,I'm not changing my story until he goes efi.I rather type in numbers than drain fuel and change jets or drop bleed screws down the opening.

well after 16 pages we do know one thing,you don,t have a clue about carbs but im sure one of the custom carb guys will teach you the hard way.hey,its your money.and in the end instead of you being butt hurt you will be cash hurt.

All I know is I'm at page 8 so you guys need to change your page settings. I went with "Custom" page settings. The reasoning I went with custom page settings is because if I'm paying for this site I want all I can get out of it. Don't get me wrong stock page settings or off the shelf page settings will work fine, but I want every bit out of my page settings. I actually called around to some of the best page setting experts out there and this is what they recommended.

Also, can someone tell me the difference between 12.5 AFR HP with carb, vs 12.5 AFR EFI HP?
Thanks, this is a great site!

depending on air flow into the cylinders,,the efi port injected afr will be more even.if you have an innovate lm series afr meter,it reads so fast that you could almost see the individual cylinders firing and get an idea as to whats going on.then of course,back it up w/ a plug reading.
