Default argument thread


carburetion>fuel injectedness.

its as easy to tune as it is to turn a screwdriver, less stuff to take a crap on you on race day, it weighs less overall, dont have to buy a whole new injector set to support other mods, and it is a cleaner, much nicer looking engine bay.

Perhaps, but your argument about not having to buy a new one to supposrt mods isn't necessarily true. If you're running a stock 550/600cfm carb and you go FI, you'd want to upgrade.

Not to mention certain injectors, such as those on diesels can be "turned up" with a computer program, which is much easier than P/P or new parts on a carb.

I'm not sure i'm gonna agree with you on that one... been fukin with my carb for a long time cuz there's no talent around here that can work with demon carburation... thus, i am learning it myself... but as simple as a screwdriver... nope, dont think so...

well, of course youll have to buy a new one (stock was a 600 on my 83) when you go f/i, and even then, its just a carb(that has to be converted to blow thru) and intake manifold.

as well, i know nothing(other than i tried to get one and they tried overcharging the **** out of me) of the bg carbs, and yes there is a lot more to the tuning when you factor in changing jets...but the simple tune that gets done every month takes a couple minutes out of my day

Injection = No tunning

unless you just have a nack for breaking things or area always playing with your car.

how about this one then...

computer gaming ****ing owns consoles, of every sort.

emulators are available that cover every single console released since the commodore 64, and being that computers are backwards compatible, a game release 10 years ago will work on practically every home system today. the new xbox and playstation may be up to computer strength in terms of graphics and computing power, as well as being a dedicated game box, but you still will not be able to patch those games, or mod them like you can with most of todays computer games. console=teh suck

Agreed.

Mouse = much easier than a controller for shooting games.
