When you are running engines that develope 600-1000 hp, and drink several
gallons of fuel each run. you use some pretty big jets, and all the tricks
you can. You do not want the cylinders to run lean, or you have lost a set
of pistons. I have seen pistons from Karl Moyer's funny car that with just a
slight miscalulation on the fuel mix completely distroyed the pistons. Some
of these engines basically just dump raw fuel into the supercharger, kind of
like a throttle-body injection system.
