Here's my weekend project.
Few of us have installed FiTech if you run into any questions.
Have you done the fuel command center skunked?
I'm very curious how the fuel command center works off road.
Also what is the door looking panel in the middle of the FiTech stuff?
That's the exhaust system in my shop
What do you mean by skunked?
I was asking @skunked if he had used the fcc. I know he's done a couple installs. Sorry about the confusion.
No I haven't. My Dad wanted to use it on the El Camino but I steered him away from it.
thinking of this on a 366 bbc truck I am working on for a friend.
would be a simple / great upgrade over carb if he needed more reliable for faster get going jobs.
if you have played with it a few times whats the real feedback ? worth the cash ?
With the cold start issues eliminated and overall driveability improvements I feel it's worth the money.
The initial test drive went well. I'll put some miles on it and post an update. So far I'm
pleased with the upgrade.
Please keep us updated. Very interested to hear about the Fuel Command Center.
Well after a couple of weeks in I'm pleased with the throttle body. Performance has improved. Unfortunately because of winter and warming it up before driving I can't really tell if the mileage has improved. I do wish FITech would have put out some kind of tuning guide but I'm figuring it out. Also I was told the laptop software isn't available for the 400hp version, I think it would make adjusting much easier than the hand held programmer.
Now for the fuel command center. Not real happy with this one. Twice in these 2 weeks the float for the low pressure side has stuck closed causing the engine to die. The first time tech support wanted to blame the vent and disregarded my sticking needle diag. I had checked the vent and it was clear. The second time I talked to someone different and he admitted they've had calls about sticking needles. Right now this is my daily driver, so it has to be reliable, so I'm thinking about changing over to the inline pump approach.
Overall I'm pleased with this conversion and would suggest it to anyone with a carb.
Thanks for the update. Please keep us posted!
when I do it I am just using efi tank/sender / newer high pressure efi pump .
I saw a conversation on another forum about using an AC Delco fuel filter #GF822 so you won't have to run a return from the front. I think it's a good idea.
The forum or the filter?
On the information on using the filter.
It's a corvette filter with the return in the filter..
