@retroboy, How much oil contamination do you get using that system?

I get a little a little condensation so just pop off the filler caps and it evaporates off. So effectively none

masracingtd1167 question about your headers  13/4" into 17/8" with merge collectors how do they compare  reg. stepped headers with a straight collector  because i wanted to try some with a 14" megaphone from the transition
    Mine are 1 7/8 to 2 inch . If you are running gasoline you might see a change ! i went back to a zoomie header and saw no change with alcohol !

When I said stepping back, I meant simple build. I would love to go stack injection and no cooling system. That's the way the car was running before. I don't know jack about what's needed or how to run fuel injection.

Not saying you need to change to injection first thing,but think about this. Buying carb setup and then injection means spending money twice. Injection is so simple you will wonder why they make carbs. Like other stated shop around some and you can find simple system at reasonable price. Understand you are little more limited on contacts with helpful input.Call few fuel system guys and see what you can get ,only cost a phone call.JMO

opa1 in texas there should be a lot of good fuel injections lay around the used ron's unit I bought cost almost the same as a new alky carb up here in the great white north stack and hat injectors are more pricy
 toilet is easy to install on a carb intake just drill the runner as you would for nitrous  ad the rest is straight forward

I bought a nice 327C8A setup today. It has 2 3/16 blades and the ports match up to my RPM heads. So it looks like I'm going injection. Now I need to find the pump and the rest of the stuff. I'll start a new thread for this part. I know I'll need some guidance.
