    I installed the wrong knock senor and didn't have the inital timing set right so it was throwing a few codes for me last night... today i have gotten it running code free... Feels Awsome.. theres a few flat spots at WOT in 1st gear but i need to play with fuel psi and maybe the computer will learn also over the next few days...

    When i get some more time, i'll post all my part numbers and a write up. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Does the Corona come with the setup /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    Very VERY nice set up. Is there any difference than your TPI and say the Edelbrock MPFI kit, other than the visually obvious?

    Now you just need Nitrous, cause everybody knows that the ultimate '72 needs nitrous like my '89 is getting.

    To sum up EFI in one word: WOW.

    Throttle response: quite a difference
    More Torque: Yes!
    More HP: Yes!
    Gas milage: Better i think.
    My plan was to get this done for close to a grand... I think i have $1200-1400 into this.

    Alright... After the first day of driving it with the injection i think i have all the bugs worked out. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
    The "flat spots or cutting out at WOT in first gear" started getting worse around corners and i realized its probably my fuel pickup.. I filled up the gas tank and i think that problem is gone and now it runs like a raped ape. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif I think i'm just going to have fuel pickup issues at about 1/4 tank in my 37 gallon fuel tank.


    hahaha... dude my buddy has a TPI nitrous kit adjustable from 50-150 shot, he's trying to get me to install it before we go to pismo in 2 weekends. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    YEEEEEEHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATPISBC!
