Hybrids vs. B-codes

We all know that hybrids require less HPO due to lower injection rates etc..

I don't know a whOle lot about big B-codes other than they require more oil, generally a healthy fuel system etc..

Basically this is my question..why doesn't everybody just run hybrids? There generally cheaper & require less performance mods to get eerything out of them. Now other than "wanting to be different" to those of you running them, how do they differ from hybrids?

Hybrids are split shot b-codes are single correct?

Are b-codes better for sled pullers whereas hybrids are better for towing? Vice versa, etc...?

Basically I'm just wondering what would make one choose a bcode over a hybrid or vice versa?

If I'm turning over old dirt please just point me to a thread where this was all discussed.
Thanks

Re: Hybrids vs. B-codes

Have you tried searching this? I haven't so don't know whats out there.
But they are both single shot injectors! Well hybrid are singles and the BD's are single!

Re: Hybrids vs. B-codes

Yes I tried searching but couldn't find anything quite like I'm looking for.

As I mentioned toward the bottom of m post, if there's a 12 page thread over this just post up the link for me and I'll start reading..

I'm doing a motor build soon and just looking for info

Re: Hybrids vs. B-codes

I have B-codes but I don't make any power. I'm very happy with them though!

Re: Hybrids vs. B-codes

Back in the day before guys started to run really huge nozzles, B-codes most certainly made more hp than hybrids.

Honestly going from like a standard Mini-Me style hybrid (238/30) to B-codes and BO often resulted in another 100 rwhp. Adding oil to the MMs would give a small boost in power but no where near 100 hp.

Then as the nozzle flow rate increased getting the oil into and out of the injector became more and more of a problem. The fact that Hybrids can flow an equal amount of #2 while flowing significantly less oil became an advantage.

If you aren't running big oil and you need 440 hp just get some MM style hybrids.

If you have BO and only want 500 hp I'd still prefer B-codes.

If you are going bigger (say 200% nozzles) I'd literally just buy whatever was inexpensive in the classifieds. The B codes seem to make more low/ mid power. The hybrids will make more top end hp.

If I was buying big and new I'd only consider Hybrids.

I'm officially...Stroke-less.
