Fesler Built’s Pro Touring Series – Part Two: Choosing your Engine/Transmission

September 14th, 2015

  1. Modern or Classic Engine – The first thing you want to decide when designing the engine/transmission combo for a pro touring car is what kind of engine it will have. Some purists prefer an older, more authentic, carbureted engine, but the style tends to lean towards a modern, fuel-injected, power plant, like an LS.

While it’s true that a properly tuned carb can yield as much power as fuel injection, and it certainly can be cheaper and faster, electronic fuel injection can give much better gas mileage and better throttle response, to say nothing of the ability to “tour” without having to adjust the carb for different altitudes.
