    I have to ask, what ECU? :D

    Hope you brought enough fuel system!

    Holley Dominator is the ECU and yes the fuel system will be set up to support the HP.

    That should keep things happy. Look forward to reading about the finished car/engine.

    I like that Edelbrock intake, can't you just turn it around and put a notch in cowl to clear the plumbing? Looks like there might be enough room to run the plumbing right under the intake....

    I did investigate that on a 64 here, and suffice to say it would require major cowl rework.

    I hear we are just a couple of billet fuel rail hold downs away from getting this beast fired up. Wonder what she will make?

    good guess...we will see. The last one made just a tad more than 125hp per hole. I am getting very excited to get this project done!

    1600 HP?

    Makes my butt pucker just to think about standing there watching that dyno pull... :eek::eek::D:D

    We will find out soon enough.. the first EFI/DIS engine is on the shop's test stand now, getting ready to be broken in with a carb and distributor, and then we will add the Holley EFI and DIS systems, and let the learning curve begin.. It's a twin turbo 350 btw..

    Just spent two months, and waaayy too much money on a complete rebuild/refit/update of my engine test stand here, these EFI/DIS jobs have to start and run, and rev up, before heading to the dyno.. The last thing you want to do at $100/hr is troubleshoot a no start condition..

    The stand is now set up with an EFI fuel system, and provisions to mount and wire the ECU, both styles of Holley system. WE also added a complete self contained coolant system, with it's own pump.

    Stay tuned..

    Back tracking a bit, do you sell those adapters? How much? I didn't see them on the website. And what do you do for thermostat/water cross over?
    (If I were to go that route some day, it's standard TA Stage 1 aluminum heads).
