These manifolds can accommodate any port design the customer wants.
Kinsler can help the customer select a port for his engine combination,
by varying both the shape and volume of the CNC ported runners.
The manifold was released in February, and Kinsler has already made
some extreme variations to suite their customers.
Some have been made for EFI road racing and for street use, with
throttle position sensors, fuel rails, and nozzle bosses for EFI nozzles.

 NewModel HP (high pressure) Nozzle Lines
Slim, sleek, lightweight



 HPHP Series W Nozzle 1940 crop web

   The line end fittings and collars are our own design, made in stainless.
   The lines are assembled in our shop, using an eight-crimp die set.
   They have a 5/16” hex at the barrel valve for easier installation.
   You can rotate the fitting in the line after installation.
   The PVC sheath is crimped under the collar; no braid showing:
   protects from dirt.

   The fitting for the nozzle has a 45-degree seat to properly match the
   angle on the nozzle.
   It is bent 65 degrees to let the lines run snug over the valve covers.

   The line is smooth bore Teflon 3/16”ID, with stainless braid, covered
   with black PVC, .275 OD. This is rated at 3,000 psi working pressure,
   with a minimum burst pressure of 14,000 psi. We have tested ten of
   these line assemblies to 15,000 psi without a failure.

       NEW: Series 2 Tough Pump
sizes: 8.68 GPM, 10.62 GPM, & 12.58 GPM at 4,000 Pump rpm, at 100 psi pressure. These are just as rugged as the Series 1 Tough Pumps; will handle
dirt in the fuel better than any other pump.


 Applications: 600 plus cubic inch naturally aspirated Methanol, Supercharged or Turbocharged Methanol up to 2,000 HP, Top Fuel Harley Davidson (requires special seals for nitro). These pumps are good to 300 psi continuous.

The biggest problem racers have with their mechanical fuel pumps is wear, due to gears and housings that aren’t hard  enough. Our pump has very hard gears and a hardcoated housing to hold up very well against dirt... we have yet to have one wear out in the field due to dirt passing through them.

Total pump failures are another problem. Our pumps are made with very premium metals, coatings, and very close tolerances to give extreme durability... we have never had one of our pumps fail in the field.

It was great watching Dario Franchitti win his third Indy 500, with his Chip
Ganassi Racing teammate Scott Dixon taking second; both running Honda
Engines. We had our equipment on both of these cars.

During qualifying, Chevrolet engines took the ten top spots, so it looked like
they might dominate the race. After being absent from Indy since 2003, they
had come back with a vengeance!

Final top twelve, by engine: Honda, Honda, Chevrolet, C, C, C, H, H, H, C, C, H

Doug MacMillan & Miriam MacMillan


G/BFCC Record  234 MPH  Hondata's RSX
Bonnneville land speed record.
Miriam Drove the 1990 JDM CRX with
Kinsler Fuel Injection individual throttle bodies
to record MPH 183.718 and 187.077 naturally

Torrance CA.Thursday 28th August 2008 
World’s Fastest Acura

Los Angeles based Hondata co-owner

Doug Macmillan and his wife Miriam set

5 Bonneville land speed records at Speed

Week at the Bonneville salt flats in Utah

this past week. 

Doug Macmillan started the week by

setting a new record in the G/BGCC

class of 221.652 mph in his 2L K20A

Acura RSX running twin Rotrex

Superchargers, installed by Norco,

CA based

This record gave him his goal of

acceptance into the vaunted Bonneville

200 mph club. He went on to also take

the G/BGALT record at 208.646 mph.

The crowning glory of the week however

 was the G/BFCC record, originally set at

an impressive 226 mph in 1990. Doug

has previously thought this record was

out of contention, until he saw the

performance of the K20A engine,

built by Joe McCarthy of Prototype

Racing in combination with the twin

Rotrex Superchargers fitted by Supercharger

experts Kraftwerks. At the 4000 ft altitude

of the salt flats, the supercharged K20A

was good for around 600HP . On the

qualifying run, Doug scraped in with a

227 mph pass, going into a spin after the

 fifth and final mile, flat spotting all 4 tires.

On inspection, 2 of the tires were throw-

aways and two passed marginally. The

team only had 2 spares which Doug

could use, so the decision was made

to swap the 25” tires from the rear to

 the front and put the spare 26” tires

on the back. This decision was fraught

with anxiety, as it changed the gearing

of the car and would require more

horsepower to get the RSX up to a

record speed. During the first pass,

Doug didn’t make use of the nitrous

 bottles in the back – at this point used

 for ballast only. Now the team needed

 the extra horsepower that the nitrous

could give, only Doug had never tuned

this engine with both blown and fuel

combinations. It was a case of “give

it your best guess”, and who better

 than tuning guru, Doug Macmillan!

The RSX pulled an impressive 234 mph

 with the additional 100 HP nitrous shot

and stopped straight this time, with no

drama. That this speed was achieved

in a production chassis, with off the

shelf Honda gearbox parts and camshafts

is a testament to the strength, quality

and engineering of Honda products.

Hondata’s RSX is now officially the

world’s fastest Acura!

Not to be out-done, Miriam, driving a

1990 JDM CRX breathing through a

set of Kinsler individual throttle bodies,

 started her week by breaking Doug’s

G/GCC record on the 3 mile short

course. The CRX had a power curve

almost perfect for the occasion. The

Kinsler ITBs moved the power peak

 (293 sea level, about 255 at altitude)

up 1000 RPM to 9700 RPM and

increased the power by 30 HP over

Doug’s engine from last year. Gearing

this year was optimized for the course

lengths. With these two major

improvements in hand, Miriam bumped

the gas competition coupe record from

 167.988 mph to 178.584 mph on the

three mile short course. This qualified

 the record and car for the 5 mile long


On her long course qualifying run, Miriam

recorded a speed of 189 mph. However

 at the 1-½ mile mark, the belly pan broke

 off and was found scattered over the

course. The team had their work cut out

for them to fabricate a new belly pan in

order to run the back up the next day.

This was accomplished by begging and

borrowing bits of scrap tin and securing

it with nuts and bolts to what was left of

 the fiberglass belly pan and the underside

 of the car. On the morning back up run,

Miriam put the car sideways at 170 mph

at the 1 ¼ mile mark and it was later found

that the height adjustments made the

previous day had given the car 1/8th

toe out on the rear wheels, making the

 car unstable at speed. Back down to

the ground for this little car!!

Miriam went out again on the same record

the next morning and qualified again at

186 mph. This time the car behaved well

 and was much more stable. The back up

run the following morning netted 188 mph

 making the record 187.077 mph.

Back on the short course on the second to l

ast day, the CRX qualified for the G/GALT

record, which was set by Doug the previous

year at 167.346 mph. Miriam bumped this

up to 183.352.  The CRX was the last car

to run on the short course and achieved a

back up speed of 184.085 mph with the

record standing at 183.718 mph. This

record and car are now officially long

course qualified. We believe that with

aerodynamic and engine work, building

on what we have learned this year, 200 MPH

will be possible on our naturally aspirated

2 litre K20 powered CRX.

We would like to thank all our sponsors,, Prototype Racing,

Church Automotive, Eibach, Tein, Kinsler,

After Hours Automotive, CPL Racing, IPS,

RC Engineering and Hitech Exhaust and

especially our team of Craig Corbin (,

Joe McCarthy, Oscar Jackson, Daniel

 Butler and Ryan Zamora for their very

 hard work during the week.

Motovated Design and Analysis

"Kiwi Peter Caughey has clinched his third World Superboat Championship in his Motovated Superboat in drizzling conditions at Featherston today.

Cantabrian’s Caughey’s time of 45.52 seconds was enough to beat fellow Kiwi and Sprintec driver Leighton Minnell (47.18 seconds), who was racing in his third only Superboat race, and ironically in the Sprintec boat Caughey built and won the 2004 and 2005 New Zealand Championships in.

Today’s result backed up Caughey’s win in the first round of the World Championship at Meremere last weekend.

Pumping out 1000 horse-power and reaching speeds of up to 140 kilometres per hour, the superboats complete 3 laps of a tight, twisty circuit around shallow channels in less than a minute with no brakes.

“This fantastic result hasn’t come easy – we’ve been working hard on the boat and I have to pay tribute to my navigator Karen Marshall and our team of sponsors and supporters, especially Motovated Design Analysis, whose sponsorship has made competing in this Championship possible,” said an elated Caughey.

“Today’s bumper crowd at the Hire Company-sponsored event were treated to some of the best sprintboat racing you could ever ask for,” continued the 5-time New Zealand and now 3-time World Champion.

In the 650 horsepower Group A boats, it was an all-Australian and all-Sprintec affair in which occasional V8 Supercar driver Nathan Pretty edged out Victoria’s Ted Sygidous to win the World Championship ahead of another Australian Slade Stanley, also in a Sprintec.  

“Lower Hutt’s Ray Ferguson was looking good for a strong result before he chucked a conrod out of the side of the block of one the largest engines in the sport - a 700 cubic inch Chevy,” said Caughey.

‘Overall it was a sensational weekend – to clinch the World Championship is one thing and to see the Sprintec boats I’ve built and prepared go 1-2 in the Superboat and Group A categories is just amazing.”

After a hectic few months of preparing boats and securing sponsorship, Caughey is looking forward to some family time camping in the South Island.

“Then the next challenge will be to capitalise on these fantastic results and entice a major sponsor for the 2010 World Superboat Championships in Australia,” said Caughey.
