Hi all. Long time since I’ve been on. Left the car sitting for over 2 years to focus on other things. My interest in getting back on the car has been peeking and I’m in the gathering of parts mode. Thanks to my cousin, I scored this nice piece and did away with the FITECH. I’m looking forward to the snappy throttle response and a few added horses. Still need to get the Air Conditioning set up and full pulley set up to finish out the power plant. I’m just happy to get something going here again. Glad to be back chatting it up and enjoying all the hard work I’ve been browsing on through these builds as well.
Welcome back. Thats a cool intake. Tell us more about it. How tall is it?

Ya Tony. What I love about it is that it’s an equal runner tune port injection style. Throttle response, horsepower and torque all effected. It uses an external ECU that allows you to lock out the distributor but still gives you the proper curve from idle to acceleration. In my experience, locking out a distributor with a carb style fuel injection system has you always set at 35 or 36 degrees. Not optimal. Plus with the large injectors it can handle up to 600hp. You can also put nice power adders to it but I’m not interested in that. Best part is that it will just fit under the hood and look Trick.

On another note. I’m going to ditch the leaf springs and go with a three link. I want the 6 way adjustability and Perfoance. Worth popping for. It also makes more room in the exhaust area. Which brings me to the other thing circled in purple, the stock tank. I have a brand new stock replacement but If I was to go to a fuel cell that was only 20” wide, I will be able to get my Stainless steel Varex VForce mufflers out from under the rear seats. Putting them all the way to the back would be a nice touch I think.
