The car left the line really good but lost top speed. So I think it lost some horsepower.
Yeah, I know Ford used injectors on the 5.0 intakes of the same era, but I don't know what they did on the 300. I'm guessing it was TBI style. Hope you get the intake figured.

Funny you should axe. I just came in with a couple pics to post. The fuel lines are done and the throttle linkage is too. Still have to rebuild the middle carb and modify the scoop. It got so warm and humid everything in the garage is wet. Supposed to only reach 60 f. tomorrow so it will dry out.

That triple carb setup looks pretty neat Bob ... gives me some ideas as I have a mid 90's Ford 300 sitting out back waiting for me to do something with it.

By the way .. next time we're at the track together and you need to change jets please remember that I have a complete Holley jet kit in my trailer.

Well Bob, that should take care of the need for more cfm & fuel. That looks great. Looking at around 730 cfm close to the 750 4V you had on there at first.
This 3x2 setup on the EFI plenum will spread the fuel to all cylinders much better than the single 4V setup.

Now a couple of driveway tests and a trip to local strip for a few test & tune passes. 10.99 is just around the corner. Make the Bullet do what we know it can do then pass it on.

Stay healthy good Buddy

[QUOTE=Old Iron;520976]R&D is the only way to know what is best.

You nailed it, OI. I don't care for dynos. Why go out to the strip knowing what you've got? Trouble for me is we get very few run in in a year. Next year we gotta get out there more. If I can stay healthy and if the weather cooperates, we can finally get this thing to perform like it is capable of.

Thanks guys for the positive comments. They are a motivator.

Larry, Unfortunately Holley jets do not fit. Autolite jets are $7.50 each locally. Half that on line. I'll start with stock jetting on the new set up.

Tom, should get some driveway hits in this week, weather permitting. I won't quit til I se a 10.99.
