# What does adding bigger injectors do?

## What does adding bigger injectors do?

Bigger injectors will deliver more fuel, but in petrol engines this means more air is needed to keep the mixture at the best combustion ratio. So if you turbo charge, or supercharge, the bigger injectors will give more power. Otherwise they will decrease power and waste fuel, like running constantly on the choke.

What are the dimensions of a GM fuel injector?

Their height and O-ring dimensions remained the same, but the electronic connector changed to match the current LS3-style injectors using a USCAR (U.S. Council on Automotive Research) / EV6 connector. This truck injector is 0.370-inch taller than its LS3 cousin, but uses the same electrical connector.

What kind of engine did Chevy have in 1997?

Chevy placed a vortex or mini tornado within the combustion chamber to efficiently blend gas and air together. Vortec engines are the base engine used in all Chevy cars and trucks and come in a variety of horsepower and torque ratings. During 1997 Chevy still had a big block engine, the 454 cubic inch.

### How much horsepower does a 500cc fuel injector have?

All of these figures are assuming that you are running an average fuel pressure of ~43psi and at 90% duty cycle. Conversions. 500cc per minute is approximately equal to 49lbs per hour which is equal to approximately 100hp. lbs/hour = cc per minute / 10.5. lbs per hour = HP / 2.04. cc per minute = lbs per hour x 10.5.

What’s the maximum fuel flow with a fuel injector?

So, 322cc divided by 5 = 64hp maximum fuel flow with this injector. If you want to be pedantic, it’s the mass of the fuel (not the volume) which is the critical factor.

What’s the fuel pressure on a 1996 Chevy k1500?

Alright guys im relying on someone to help me out here with the actual PER GM specs for the Vortec Fuel pressure. I have done alot of searching and know that anything over 55 etc is good however my buddys truck (1996 Chevy K1500 5.7L 4L60E) has a P0300 code and after alot of digging i checked the fuel pressure.
