With all this talk about EFI cycle time, flow, and atomization one might
want to experiment in the garage with calibration, pressures, pintel or
nozzle geometry. So what about safety?


Do you use gas or water to flow injectors? Water is much denser (messes up
the calibration) and does bad things if not completely dried out.


If you use gas, what about fumes.  If sprayed under high pressure into
graduated cylinders there must be a hazardous fume or vapor issue. There
must be many sources of ignition in a shop.  If forced ventilation is used
spark proof motors must be used but is that all?  I'm talking about a
garage, not a professional facility.  Any words of wisdom or experience out
there (other than don't do it!).  -Elon
