Re: Efi ????
Congrats on the EFI choice. It would be possible to accomplish all of this in two weeks, but that all depends on what you find acceptable from an appearance standpoint. Placing the computer and hiding all the wiring can take some time. Not to mention running all of the plumbing for the fuel system. I would suggest that wait until you have more time, especially if you have never done it before. You will need to mount the pump close to the tank, or in it. There are two fuel filters, one before the pump and one after. For your HP I would run #10 line to the pump, and then your #8 (1/2 inch) to the motor. The return line is min #6 (3/8 inch). The pump that comes with the XFI is an Aeromotive A1000. The pump and filters are #10 fittings. you will need to buy fuel line, return line, and fittings to make it all work. I am not sure about the Rick's tank. You might want to find out what kind of HP they rate it to. You will also need to weld in a bung for the O2 sensor. Depending on what hood and intake you have, the intake height might be a problem. The rest of the install is a breeze. Within 20 minutes of starting mine it ran better that the expensive carb that I spent three years trying to tune! The guys at FAST are very helpful if you have any questions!! You will love the XFI! I can't believe that I waited so long to make the switch. After messing with this POS carb for so long and getting nowhere, the choices were: 1)waste another $1200 on a new carb that might be better. or 2)Take the money that I would have put into a carb and buy fuel injection.
