    they Both operate the same..both work on a by-pass method. barrell valves, main jets,high speed by pass if you run them and nozzles...

    basically it narrows down to matter of choice..the toilet is much smaller. but the hat looks much better My opinion..

    but both are the same mechanically..

    yes its about the same once you get them started..the problem is the fuel pumps.. they are gravity fed and no accelerated pumps in the injection..
    you can buy a gas primer to place on them for next to nothing...all it is is a catch can or smaller cannister that holds a quart of gas or less...it squirts the gas into the top of hat or toilet and helps draw up the alcohol much quicker...if your a one man show its the best choice if you have no-one there squirting gas into the injecter with a mustard bottle.....

    the key will be when you go to shut the car down depending on how much fuel remains in the line..all these injectors must be manully shut off with push pull cable and 3 way shut off valve..the proper way to shut one of these off is to close the valve until you hear the motor pick up just slightly then kill the switch..all this does is kill the fuel the pump is drawing from the tank..of course the longer you let it after you shut the valve off the harder it will be to crank cause you run the lines dry completely..

    whichever you choose.. DO NOT spend all the money and time with all those return lines...they make a loop back system that consist of one stainless steel line that will loop back into the pump itself..eliminating the extra expense of return lines and will also keep your pump wet by returning fuel back to the pump itself instead of the tank.. ..which helps with restarts...

    thanks Brian...

    Thanks BJ for putting me in on this subject.

    First the toilet for me works like a carberator and i run one on my car. Yes it's slow to start because it's a manuel pump. I always turn it over until the oil pressue is up an flip the ing. switch on it is ready to fire.
    Same with a hat or stacks injection. Now about preference, on gas i cannot go there because i run alcohol. I was living in AZ. when Ron came up with the toilet bowl, i knew him then and still do. like i said i run his 4.1 on my 377" motor and it works like a carb. It idles at 800 RPM and responds like a carb. The Hat will never work like a bowl, because it is usually mounted on a tunnel ram manifold. I have found that the 60ft. times is always better with a bowl than a hat. and the big end is no difference.
    My personal preference is Hilborn Stacks, there is no comparison to the before mentioned injection systems.
    I also idle my stacks injection at 800 RPM, you can count the firing of the motor. Bottom line get it right and it will run right. If i can pull some vids out i will ad them to this post.
    Personal preference is stacks, well not really HeHe, Blower with Hat.
