New Service Converts Intakes to Fuel Injection
Injector Bosses and Fuel Rail Stanchions Can Be Installed on EFI Intakes
Wilson Manifolds has added a new service: the installation
of injector bosses and fuel rail stanchions on intake manifolds. Aimed at the
street-strip, drag racing, and off-road markets, this service is particularly convenient
for hot rod enthusiasts, racers, and engine builders who are converting to fuel
“To obtain efficient atomization,” says Keith Wilson, “the
injectors must be positioned precisely in the intake tract. If not the fuel
mist collides with an intake wall and vapors degrade into large droplets. In doing
so they enter the chamber in less than perfect form and power is lost.”
Wilson, renown for improved airflow, airfuel distribution,
and horsepower gains via their ported and sheet metal manifold designs,
spacers, fuel rails, elbows, and throttle bodies, says that they adapt existing
manifolds or supply new manifolds with all necessary provisions for fuel injection.
Porting work, nitrous provisions and burst panels can also be provided if necessary.
The two most popular fuel injection throttle bodies
currently in use are the 4-barrel style and the large single-bore style that
functions with an elbow. Four barrel throttle bodies are popular on naturally
aspirated street-strip and Baja engines; large single-bore units are commonly
used on drag racing turbo and supercharged applications as well as large
displacement or powerful naturally aspirated engines.
