Kindler Efi Kit

Alright. So I have a 1964 1/2 Mustang with a 289 carb and I'm starting to get big ideas.

I really like the style of Vaughn Gittin Jr's mustang rtr-x. Especially the Kindler Fuel Injection system sticking out of the hood.

I was wondering if there was any way the engine I have now could be easily/cheaply converted to EFI and use the Kindler system in the RTR.

Please keep in mind that I am not an expert on this stuff so please try to keep answers simple for me.

It's actually spelled "Kinsler". I can't look at their catalog in my phone, but you should be able to get your answers on their website. It is electronic so I assume there is a standalone computer and harness that goes with it. My guess is the computer install would be more difficult than the mechanical parts. You have to be comfortable replacing an intake manifold. Grab a shop manual and read up on it.

Sorry, the answer to the one question is No, it's not cheap!!!

Excuse me on the spelling.

And how much does Kinsler charge for the system? I might just get a EFI harness cheap off a donor. I'd just buy the Drangon Claw Injection from them

I've been looking for prices online and don't see anything. You probably have to contact them. Check out this link to an article in Hot Rod. The type you are looking at is mentioned but no price given. That's a bad sign.

Even if I don't get EFI are there any types of carburetors that look like the Kinsler?

Here's an air cleaner for $1300!!!!!

Seriously, four Webers has the same kind of look but they are also about $3500 for the whole setup.

I did find this, but says out if stock. Called "velocity stack style 4V air cleaner."

The one with 8 stacks is the $1300 one.

I looked around a little myself and considering the prices I'll probably have to wait a couple years. Since I have to pay off the car first. (A 16 year old only has so much money)

Unless I can find some killer deal.

Tuning all those carbs would be the biggest pita

At that price you're in SC money anyway, not sure of the HP gain from the 8 carb setup. Unless that's the look you want.

It's more about look but the little increase wouldn't be bad.
