Injector Sizing and Locater page

First here's a calculator for getting an idea of what size of injector you need

If this calculator doesn't work you may have to click on the yellow Windows Bar above and allow it to use ActiveX

Fuel Injector Size Calculator

Engine Horse Power(1):
BSFC(2):
Number of Injectors:
Injector duty cycle(3):

Flow Rate: Lb/Hr     cc/min

* NOTE: Unless otherwise noted, all injector flow rates are calculated at a fuel pressure of 43.5 PSI (3 BAR).
(1) Whenever possible, use actual dyno results for engine horsepower.  If no dyno results are available, consult with your engine builder for a horsepower estimate.
(2) BSFC is usually a number between 0.4 and 0.7 for gasoline engines.  Although BSFC can be estimated, it is best to determine an actual number on a dyno.  If a dyno is not available, the following numbers can be used as a rule of thumb:

  • For naturally aspirated engines, estimate BSFC to be 0.4 to 0.5
  • For nitrous engines, estimate BSFC to be 0.5 to 0.6
  • For forced induction, estimate BSFC to be 0.6 to 0.7
  • For rotary engines, estimate BSFC to be 0.6 to 0.7
  • For engines running methanol, double the appropriate gasoline BSFC (e.g. a forced induction methanol engine has a BSFC between 1.2 and 1.4)

(3) Injector duty cycle should be 0.8 (80%) or LESS.  Numbers higher than 80% are generally NOT RECOMMENDED.  If maximum injector duty cycle is not known, use 0.8 as an estimate.

To calculate the horsepower capacity of injectors based on their flow rating:

Fuel Injector Maximum HP Capacity Calculator

Injector flow rate: lb/hr
Number of injectors:
BSFC:

Fuel Injector Max HP*:

*NOTE:  This formula calculates the maximum horsepower that fuel injectors in proper working order can produce. This formula WILL NOT be accurate if the fuel injectors in question are damaged, clogged, or modified.  This formula will also be inaccurate if the rest of the fuel system cannot produce enough pressure and volume to supply the injectors.  All calculations  should be made at 43.5 PSI unless otherwise noted.

 

Here is a list of factory cars and their injector sizes

and below that is a list of companies that sell injectors
