I don't know why but I had the idea in my head that your car has long been a wicked fast, big block, pro street type car. Didn't realize that is just the current project. How long has it been since the car was driveable?

Re: headers $2000 GOING Big Block!

I like to use what works well and there is support for, there is almost no support for FiTech. I know someone who tunes cars as one of his primary job skills, and he said the FiTech is terrible, he said never again. Guy at the Optima Race this past summer had the FiTech, he said they had to create their own support page on Facebook because FiTech won't help them. From what I heard he actually removed the FiTech from his car over the fall. The only good thing about the FiTech is the price.

Re: headers $2000 GOING Big Block!

That's too bad... I have spoke with Fi Tech over the last month probably 5 or 6 times... I've always gotten ahold of them and always had the questions answered.... by their tech department... maybe it's just me... just lucky I guess... I'm not going to do anything fancy with their system... just running it instead of carburetors... with a dedicated fuel return system..from the start...but we will see how it Works out..

On a side note.. I have taken notes on problems that others have had... 99% are user error..Some more simple... but I don't jump into something without looking first...

Re: headers $2000 GOING Big Block!

What gets mass marketed? What gets real world results? Lots of systems out there. I'm sure each one has good and bad things about it.

One thing I would consider is to look at what's being used a lot. Look at all the cars competing in last years Drag Week. There were a lot of fuel injected cars. I'm sure a huge amount of them were using Holley.

Re: headers $2000 GOING Big Block!

mod..parts..as I don't want to cut my any Original equipment parts up..
scored a original GM bumper cover($249).to mod for the chute braket..will have It painted. when I get the hood painted..
not a mark on it.(THATS WHAT I PAY FOR)..its never been hit or even bumped into...I think it even might have been a GM replacement part.as the 5.7 emblem was not in the right place...
and this way I can get rid of the 5.7 tuneport Emblem .. anybody make a 10.0 EFI emblem...lol
chute cable hole in trunk will be in trunk light..picked up a 2nd trunk light as well..($24)
Never.. cut up Original parts...

Re: headers $2000 GOING Big Block!

looks like the 2nd house is selling..now if we can just get it closed.in the nexed few weeks..that pays for the Aluminum BBC.. at this time I orderd the Fitech duel TB top. and linkage.. THIS is cheaper then ordering a 2018 ZR1 Camaro..and saves me big bucks at buying a 2018 COPO Camaro...lol



linkage for the side ways mount of the TB

Re: headers $2000 GOING Big Block!

not a Race Craft This is another manufacturer. AA performance the picture is shown with the bar upside.down this bar provides the mounting tabs for the 5 hold down bolts on the bottom chin of the bumper.. I will add the chute bracket to this.. so it is all in one..
