    Need a fuel flow sensor capable of 20 to 25 lbs per min. For a efi screw blown application. Race pal one is too pricey. Wondering what else is out there. Thanks,Mike

    Normally turbine flow meters are measured in gallons per minute of GPM. 20-25 lbs per minute is only 3.0 to 3.77 GPM with methanol weighing 6.63 lbs be gallon. That equates to roughly 8 to 11 lbs of boost. If you are going to use a flow meter with a Racepak then it's needs a Racepak calibration K-factor. Not sure you are going to find one cheaper. They have to be made out of stainless steel because of the corrosion with alcohol and have to have ceramic bearings for the turbine for longevity.

    So how much was it from them? Still around $895. So the question now is does it have the K-factor scribed on top for use with a Racepak? Homer mak the ones for Racepak also.
