Myth.


A carb would not be able to keep up with the fuel requirements of a Top Fuel Funny Car.

This is for just one cylinder... first part of video at idle, then at full throttle......8 gallons per minute for each cylinder:

My house is at 7K feet. I've ridden to 14,100. One of my favorite rides around here varies from 3,500 to 12K. I've had both a carb and now the FI. For me, it's FI all the way.
