Just wondering if there are any issues with removing the restrictor for a fun day. 

 

Will it make the car run too lean (if it was dynoed and fuel pressure adjusted with the restrictor in place)?

 

How much difference might it make?

 

TIA.

There is always a suspicion that some racers do it for the race.
Seriously, no problem at all the computer will make adjustments for it. If you have an air flow meter I would just monitor as always.

I always pop my car up 2-3 psi just for safe measure. Gain is about 12 hp, so gain only 10 being a little rich and don't worry about it is my thought

Since I have no restrictor to remove, I just top off the NOS levels in the roll cage (via the well hidden schrader valve). Makes for great passing in the short chutes!
