  1. i bought a new tank with an aeromotive fuel pump installed, but if i had to do it again i would get the holley pump that goes into a factory tank for efi. it selfregulates the pressure and you dont have to run a return line back to the tank. another option that i have used on a customers mustang is the edlebrock fuel module, its fed off your stock pump and then it raises the pressure to the appropriate efi pressure. you can get the edlebrock pro flo 4 injection kit for about $2k thats the intake with injectors, a dist, all the wiring and a tablet to tune it. only addition is the fuel pump. the
  2. Glad your happy, I spent a lot of time as SEMA talking to the guys at Fitech and they just didn't have the features I needed. My car makes a bit more power then some and I wanted the ability to really fine tune it and the Holley HP system controls my Nos system too. Made 504hp and 540lbs to the ground on the dyno and 605hp and 650lbs on the nos to the ground. Ant
  3. My first GTO at 18 was 74, mine was dark blue with red interior which looked almost orange. Had the original window sticker with it, factory 4 speed car with rally gauges. I put a 455 with 670 heads in it, had a lot of fun with that car. Still miss it, I wound up painting it Buccaneer red and changing the interior to black as back then I could not get much for interior for it. Yours is sweet in that color!! Ant
  4. My 68 gto, has a 467 with butler's 340cfm heads and their biggest hydraulic roller cam topped with Holleys HP fuel injection. It made 504hp and 530 foot pounds through a t56 magnum and a strange dana 60. Ant
  5. I finally got my Holley hp efi up and running and it's like a totally different car! I will never run a carb again ever! So much smoother under all driving conditions its unbelievable how much better it's running. I still have some tuning to do and I want to get it on a dyno to see what the power level is and also set up the nos properly. Ant
  6. Thanks for the write up, if anyone needs to have gauges fixed the best guy out there is Peter Siero of Precision Pontiac. We've had him do a bunch of sets over the last 20 years. He did my main cluster in my 68 and several sets for 65s for us. I had bought an aftermarket set for the 68 and since you have to use your speedo they looked like junk the colors didn't match at all. So I dug through my old files and found Peter's number and he did an original set for me and they came out great!! Ant
  7. Johny, Glad your happy with it and I hope it works long term for you, as I mentioned they really are a glorified Carb which if I wanted that I would have stayed with the Quick Fuel 950 that I have it works great but I want additional tuneability for my car that the FITECH does not offer. I'm just waiting to get my intake back from my brother with the injector bungs in it so I can get mine back up and running. Ant
  8. I talked to those guys at sema and was not impressed. They only make throttle body systems for a pontiac which in my opinion is not better then a carb. There didn't seem to be much you could do to tune it yourself so if you have a high performance motor I was not convinced it would work. A guy brought one to the local machine shop for his car and they used it for the initial break in, the machinists were not sure it was that great either. I know the price seems good but I think the for a mostly stock motor I'd go for the edlebrock, they have a multi port sequential system. Comes with complete
  9. So the current coils read that much difference? That seems odd, I'll check some specs tomorrow when I get to the shop. ant
  10. Those are known to get cracks in the coil housing you need to turn in over and inspect it for cracks that is your most likely cause. I'm going by memory on this but I'm remembering a fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail with the car running pull the vacuum hose of and make sure no fuel sprays out if it does replace it. If that is good check the fuel pressure under load, I dont think that is your issue though since under load it would it would miss worse then at idle. My money in on the coil housing Ant
  11. Egr will throw it's own code and will not affect idle. Does it miss at idle or under load? What do the fuel trims look like? It would be good to clean the mass air flow sensor with the correct cleaner, carb and brake clean can leave a film the will affect the readings. Ant What motor do you have? The 3.4 has a mass air flow in the intake tube, you said you replaced the plug wires the 2.4 does not have wires so I'm confused. Ant
  12. If your worried about rust run dot4 its synthetic fluid. Other option is to flush about every 2 years. Besides the best thing you can do for the whole car is drive it at least once a month. A long time ago a good friend gave me that advice he had one of the nicest 65 tri power cars, it was black on black. He said he used to let it sit for months at a time and it was always something he had to do, carbs leaking brake issues then he started to drive it at minimal once a month said that was the end of the problems.

  14. Hello all, So SEMA was awesome to say the least, i had several conversations with Holley as well as Edelbrock, FAST and FITECH. I have ordered the Holley HP system including their dual-sync Distributor. I thought that i might share a bit of what i learned talking them all and why i went with Holley. first since i have a pretty healthy motor, it should make around 600hp according to what Butler told me of course the dyno will tell that story when we get to that point, i need a single plane intake and i also wanted sequential multi port injection. to do that you have 2 options Holley o
  15. Yes I added the hideaways and I like the 69 grilled better. Thanks for the kind words Ant
