    Re: I\'m now injected!!!!!

    What'd you do for a pump, and how is it wired?

    Re: I\'m now injected!!!!!

    Good luck w/the Holley pump. I don't know if they've changed it, but everyone I know had round filed it and got their truck to run much better. Also, are you running it with the variable output from the computer, or with a switch or relay to a full 12V? What did you do for the return line?

    Re: I\'m now injected!!!!!

    Did your truck already have TBI on it?

    Re: I\'m now injected!!!!!

    So the pumps are not good eh? Guess I better get a spare pump then. There is a relay that is connected right to the battery. There was already a return line on the truck and I had carb before hand.

    Re: I\'m now injected!!!!!

    IMO the best setup is to run a stock TBI in-tank pump with a full 12V. They can be retrofitted into a stock carb'd tank, but it is better to use a FI tank due to the internal baffling. Make sure you are running a 5/16 return line if you run the pump at a full 12V, and don't run a stock pump at &lt;12V.

    Re: I\'m now injected!!!!!

    Thanks for the info Pete. I know I'll be carrying an extra fuel
    pump. The intake is a good idea. Maybe a winter project. Here are the pics of the injection system installed.

    Re: I\'m now injected!!!!!

    Cool pics, let us know how it performs over stock.
    P.S. Is that a glass see through fuel filter I spy? If it is, I would suggest tossing it. Yes it is nice to see the debris, but if you change it regularly (1-2 times a year) you don't have to worry anyway, but if a rock comes up off the road or it hits something in the engine compartment, the glass shatters and fuel gets dumped on things like headers and exhaust manifold and that mean big problems. I know this because my buddy had one on a completely ($50,000+) restored 1957 Pontiac, and he had one of those filters on it. He thought it was ok in the engine compartment because nothing should get through the radiator, core support, etc. and he even wire tied it to a heater line to keep it from flopping. Well one day while cruising, a stone (or at least that what he thinks) made it's way into the engine compartment and shattered the glass. Well now the car is in his barn, completely burned (well pretty close to completely, I think part of the trunk was spared). Just trying to help.

    If you didn't build it yourself, how can you call it yours.......?
