Re: Three questions Fuel Injection



Regarding Fuel Injection vs Carburetion, I have always been a proponent of carburetion over fuel injection for the “average” guy because of the cost factor.  However, as Rich has said, fuel injection is “more usable in a variety of environments” and it has its place in certain builds.  That being said, I am departing from my usual carburetion advocacy to using the FiTech injection on my current Poly Stroker project for reasons of tunability with a temperamental induction system; sheet metal tunnel ram on the street. 
 
From my research, FiTech is the premiere electronic fuel injection company out there for the following reasons; no “issues” with long duration/high overlap camshafts, self contained unit not requiring a remote location computer with cable, cutting edge technology at pace or ahead of the industry, and lower overall price compared to the competition.  Note, this does not disqualify Holley or other excellent companies producing EFI systems but merely what I can discern thus far.

Yes I have heard of Fitech as one used regularly. I think they are priced a little bit better also. An issue with EFI is the fuel return line requirement. Edelbrock has a system that has a small engine compartment mounted tank that cures that issue. I think that maybe Fitech has something like that also.

Michael Harding of Street Muscle TV has used both a dual quad and a single on his poly, Project Track Attack, which he road races. He uses the FASTEZ system.

To me fuel injection seems like it would be handy in making the car more usable in a variety of environments as it adjusts itself for altitude, etc. It most likely would improve the mpg but it'd take quite a bit of gas to pay for it.

It's on my list of items I would like to have. But maybe AC is first. And a radio would be nice.

Look at FI Tech (Fuel Injection Technologies) All the information is there including instructions. Very good reviews.
Hot Rod used it on a 383 Mopar drag car and wrote an article.
 
We are going to install a kit on a '69 Roadrunner probably in April after the snow stops. And plan to install them on a Max Wedge later in the season.  Spoke with tech support at FI Tech and they indicated they have installed them on a Max Wedge and work fine.

I've been seriously considering the Holley Sniper setup. I like the fact that it's completely self contained and clean. Just need to round up the $1,250 first!

Hey guys.  Just wondering if any of you have made the move to EFI on your cars yet?  If so, which system did you go with?  And was it worth it?

Thanks
