Plan on it. I have the same heads but I will be goin with a cam. And holly systemax 2 intake with bigger injectors and such. Getting closer tho. My rear suspension stuff will be in around Tuesday. After that's installed and done I will be ready to start my engine mods. Hopefully about 2-3 months from now be able to install my eng mods

Hey that is a great article!!! Will you still gain close to the same amount of horsepower with efi or not? Also where can I even find those so I can figure up pricing? Summit racing?

First you have to have like 50 post for the discount. You can go to the support our sponsors thread. The 2 that I've used is for American muscle and late model restoration. Google them when you call to place order you tell them your a member here and they'll tack on your discount it's like 5-6%

To get the ME forum discounts go to the AM or LRS forums on this site.

Read their posts on 'How" to get the discount and follow the directions.

Will those same parts get as large of a gain with efi instead of carbed?

I hope it gets close because I am going the route they did without a turbo and still hopefully get all the power. I'm hoping to have the money to do all that by this summer. Well that and a rear main seal.

I'm basically saying I never wanted a turbo but couldn't figure out how to get clear up there and then this thread came up and bam there was my answer. When I do it though Im pry gonna put stronger push rods in it as well though instead of leaving the stock ones in there.

Don't get carried away on the pushrods.
You won't need big HD pushrods unless you are building a high RPM engine with high valve spring pressures.


P.S. I just added some info to the the "Useful Info" thread about EFI vs Carburetors for you guys. Scroll down past the link list.
