if the track that you guys run at, had rules that stated, fuel injected cars allowed if came equiped from factory, would you run a fuel injected vehicle. ie caprice or crown vic, police cars from auction, or do you think they would not be competitive?

i'd run an aftermarket injection in a heartbeat if i could. we all race "stock cars"-cars that are stock for the last 15 years have fuel injection. injection works a million times better than a carb.

A Holley Projection would be really nice... just dump the carb and stuff the TB in place. If they were to allow it, I might have to swap to a Ford. The EEC-IV system used on most any Ford V8 from 86-93 or so is a pretty simple setup and very easily managed. For about $400 you can get a chip and software to tweak everything. I actually prefer tuning my T-bird with a laptop versus screwing with a carb and HEI in the racer.

The GM TPI setup is fairly limited unless you can change the runners significantly. It was designed for peak power around 5000-5500 rpm and nothing will change it unless the runners are changed dramatically. The best heads in the world would still suk with a stock TPI intake setup.
