New from Dynatek Racing is their Classic Fuel Injection. The retro-modern fuel injection combines the all-visual impact of 48mm IDA downdraft carbs with unmatched driveability and performance. Unlike those cantankerous carbs, the new Classic Fuel Injection provides instant starting (regardless of weather conditions), crisp throttle response, and even impressive fuel mileage compared to a 48mm downdraft setup. The key to this impressive performance is the fact that the new Classic Fuel Injection combines nostalgic good looks with modern technology. Thanks to a sophisticated management system, the Classic Fuel Injection has all but eliminated hard starting, plug fouling, and the basically compromised air/fuel mixture associated with downdraft carburetors. The best part about this retro-modern injection system is the self-learn (closed loop) capability that can perform the majority of the required tuning all by itself. Kits are available for small-block Chevys, Ford 302, 351, FE, and even 429/460. Dynatek will soon release systems for the LS1/LS2 and 5.7L/6.1L Dodge Hemi applications.
