Engines equipped with fuel injection provide more power and torque than their carburized counterparts. The precision of fuel injection and modern electronic controls allow for a fuel supply that can be adapted to the driver's demand. When I asked Mark about the initial cost of an EFI system compared to a carburettor, he said that it was worth it for the overall increase in performance and consistency. Carburettors can be adjusted to provide an accurate fuel supply, but that setting cannot be changed by external effects.
The Edelbrock universal EFI sump kit is designed to provide the high-pressure fuel needed for EFI applications in vehicles that still use a mechanical fuel pump. Adjusting a carburettor requires hand tools, while EFI requires entering information into a portable controller. EFI systems offer a number of advantages over carburettors. The most obvious is the increased power and torque, but there are other benefits as well. EFI systems are more efficient than carburettors, meaning they use less fuel and produce fewer emissions.
They also provide better throttle response and improved idle quality, making them ideal for performance applications. EFI systems are also easier to tune than carburettors. With a carburettor, you need to adjust the jets and other components manually, which can be time-consuming and difficult. With an EFI system, you can make adjustments quickly and easily using a laptop or handheld controller. Finally, EFI systems are more reliable than carburettors. Carburettors are prone to wear and tear over time, while EFI systems are designed to last for years with minimal maintenance. In conclusion, EFI systems offer a number of advantages over carburettors, including increased power and torque, improved efficiency, better throttle response and idle quality, easier tuning, and greater reliability.
