FORMULAS

The basic formula for calculating fuel requirements is (no. of cylinders x injector flow rate) / 6.75, this equals to about a 90% duty cycle. For example a car with 4 cylinders and 430 cc/min injectors, would have enough fuel for (4 x 430) / 6.75 =  255 hp.

Another useful formula is for calculating the percentage increase of fuel flow through the injectors if the fuel pressure is raised. The formula for this is the square root of (new pressure / stock pressure). So for example let's say you increase your fuel pressure from 38 psi to 48 psi, you percentage increase of fuel would be (48 / 38 = 1.26315). The square root of 1.26315 =  1.12, so you have now increased fuel flow by 12%. So if your injectors are 430 cc/min, you would now have (430 x 12% = 51.6) + 430 =  481.6 cc/min injectors.
