cobalt327 It wouldn't surprise me if they attached an ad somehow. I don't know why ads would be keying on my posts though.

I see where he's all over the 'net w/it, yeah. But as far as him violating the policy here, I'm not sure he has- but one way to bring it to the attention of the powers that be is to hit the 'report post' icon and see what they'll do about it.

Mr fix it might even be a sock puppet.


Sock puppet!! LOL I thought so to at first but I dont think so he's posted after this thread. I don't think he knows about the testimonial ?

Jester

Cobalt! Sock puppet on your post is yellow and has an ad attached I use fire fox and its the only ad I see on this sights threads???? My ad blocker Is on and working too !!!!

painted jester Cobalt:

google "Testimonials - Real Street Ram" to see a Hotrodders testimonial!!!!!!

There are three testimonials on this company's web sight They are all Emails except for this one that is cut and pasted on their web sight, From a hotrodders post on this thread! It just strikes me as wrong! I wonder if Mr fix it knows?

Cobalt: LOL Whats IANAL LOL?

Yes its old ! I was on another thread and saw his Add was posted and bellow that thread was this thread; so I posted on it, (my thoughts)! What this guy got was free advertising that would cost big money for you or I or anyone else to do If we had a brain storm modification of a product! He has a captive audience on this sight! It just struck me as wrong!

painted jester Very interesting , I have 4 Weiand tunnel rams, among others! But you don't sell the top plenums separat from the Weiand bottom ! So if I modified the tops for track use on different configurations I would need to buy whole intakes from you or if a top plenum was damaged in a wreck or say a carb fire and damage happened I cant buy a replacement top??

Your on a lot of auto web sights pushing this product, I don't see how Hotrodders is letting you get away with this when we other members cant even mention on a thread we have a used fender some one needs and are told to P.M. or put it in our classifieds!!!!!! Who do you kiss to run this advertising!

All your posts on hotrodders are on your product and your only thread is on your product that tells me your only interest on hotrodders is free advertising of your product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

New Dyno Results

Got some new dyno results on an engine with more cam and heads than the Goodwrench stuff I posted before. We made +20lb-ft or more than the RPM from 2000 to 3200RPM, and beat it everywhere except the very top of the rev range. Very pleased, as the RPM is nearly unbeatable in every test on mild engines.

Here is a link to a statement by Jim McFarland, who knows as much about mixture quality as any living human:
http://www.maxchevy.com/columns/mcfa...farland-1.html

Port injection runs at 50-60psi fuel rail pressure, while TBI runs at 12-15psi. Plus with the injector next to and pointed directly at the intake valve, port injection does not give the fuel the opportunity to drop out of suspension while moving through the manifold. So with port injection you can set things up so the fuel evaporates at just the right time.
That makes sense. Thank you for the clarification and the reading material

Atomization and distribution is the key to driveability - that is why I divided up the plenum. With carburetors, you need velocity through the venturis to get the metering to be correct at low RPM. But with TBI, the computer calculates the injector pulse width based on MAP and RPM - you don't need velocity through the throttle body to meter the fuel.

All that said, I have not built what you are talking about, so if you do it, let us know how it works out!
