View Full Version : running out of fuel up top

08-23-2005, 11:07 PM
i was at the track tonight, and ran a 13.96. after the 1/8 mile it seemed to be running out of fuel at the top of the rpm's and i dont know why. its the stock fuel rail with 42# injectors, acufab regulator and im not too sure on the pump. i just figured it should be going faster than that because i trapped 91 mph, really low for the time i think. please help me out on ways to solve this problem :confused:

Chip? Boost? Fuel pressure? Scan tool data? Time slip?

With some data, we might be able to sort something out....

I'd suspect fuel pump ...

This an 84/85 or 86/87? The latter should be able to better that with no more than a chip change if all else is working well.

How much boost were you running? Pump gas or race gas?
