Re: Thompson power blast plate- Carb innovation?

Very similar Andy, fuel that is thoroughly mixed with air has a better chance of a complete burn in the combustion chamber compared to a concentration of fuel. It appears that device breaks up the fuel to assist in that area, which if their dyno sheets are correct is allowing for a more complete burn. Similar to fuel injectors, if they simply dumped the identical amount of fuel in the form of a stream rather than a patterned mist that system would be terribly inefficient.
