The Car
327 .03 over bore
Motown single plane intake
Dart aluminum performance heads
Lunati street/strip hydraulic roller cam
MSD pro billet dizzy and 6AL with 7200 pill
Hooker comp headers & Flowmaster duals
700R4 with shift kit
Moser 12 bolt rear with 4.11 Eaton Possi
Pushing 475 at the crank

Better gas millage
Increased HP
Better street manners
Able to compete at the strip once or twice a month
Easy cool weather starts
Better throttle response
Self learning
No need to change intake, heads, cam, etc.
Easy for a someone with no EFI experience to install

I don't want to spend my life savings on it. What fuel tank and pump should I be looking at or do the manufacturers offer a recommended tank and pump? How long does the install take? Do you need any specialty tools? Any other advice?
I donít think EFI will improve your street manners, that is generally due to the cam selection etc in my experience. As above, make sure you are producing sufficient vacuum for a bolt on EFI....
