Top fuel dragsters engine performance ect...

In drag racing like NHRAand NIRA, what fuel injection method do they use? Do they use carborators for fuel injections? My friend told me that top fuel dragsters and funny car uses carborators because it can put more fuel in the cylinders so that is why there are flames coming out of the exhaust pipe. He also said that the fastest time in the 1/4 is 3.8 but I didnt believe it so im asking you guys.
Does anyone know how many cylinders the topfuel dragsters use and what engine they come from? How do they get it up to like 5000 hp? Do they use a stock engine and build it up or what? And what kinda transmission do they use, my friend said that they use maual cuz its faster but I thought auto would be better with that much horsepower.
Please help me anyone, ChrisV,DSMER, !
More info are welcome.. and thanks everyone
