I made a new fuel log for our tunnel ram set up. What do you think?

Well I don't know why the last 2 don't show. (mod could you fix them?)

Anyhow we had the standard 8 port Enderle distribution block mounted to the bottom of the plenum. It seemed to drain and cause hard starting. Hopefully this helps.

It goes to a Racepak 0-150psi pressure sensor mounted on the side of the plenum.

 Where is your barrel valve? If its above your nozzles you haven't changed much.
I just use the shut off each time and it clears the lines well enough.
I noticed you have Skyveiw listed as your track. Where do you race now?
A bunch of Skyveiw racers ended up at Empire Dragway.

Yes the barrel valve is above every thing. I am hoping this creates a low spot (trap). The way it was, it was pitched all down hill to the nozzles.

Yea we live <15 miles from Skyview, and its a shame it closed. With the covid going on we have not raced much just a few times to Empire and ESTA and not at all in 2021, . Looking forward to going to Empire a few times this coming year.

You may not like the drive but you should like the track at Empire, it just keeps getting better every year.
If you plan on running a bunch you can rent a pit spot for the season and leave your stuff there.

We kind of have two choices, ESTA or Empire, and the owner of Empire has done a phenomenal job with the facility over the last few years. Everything about it is top notch! The staff actually likes their jobs and are very friendly and helpful. The drive is actually worth it and not to bad at all.

Their 2022 schedule was recently posted!!!!!!! Hopefully a IHRA national is in their future, the family and I attended the last one they had years ago, but I will settle for the pro mods. ;D

Unfortunately, as far as I know, SKYVIEW is just sitting there rotting away. It could be a nice facility again, with a new owner.

If you see our orange 69 Camaro this year, come say hi.
