Why would you build a motor and only run 305s, even with an AFPR? No ECU?

even with an ECU; raising the fuel pressure = larger injectors

305cc injectors @ 100psi = 420cc injectors = 220rwhp

I thought about doing it. It's done with the EMB all the time. The "ECU" has no way of knowing (unless you tell it) that there is more pressure, so if you just tune your maps like there is no FMU, then you can support lots of HP with a perfectly controlled AFR.
