EFI throttle linkage/cable

O.k so the Holley Hp efi is ordered (multi-port), tank ordered, hose ,filters ,fittings on their way. I "think" I got most of it figured out. (ya right!)
The throttle is scaring me a bit. I have linkage now. Do you think it might be possible to modify it to work? If not, what parts should I look into? What works for you? I have committed to a roadtrip on the 12th. I want this in. Being from Canada,special parts can take over a week to arrive. Not cool when you have a dead line!

Re: EFI throttle linkage/cable

Dan, what rear gear/tire are you running, and which TKO OD do you have?

Just curious how your motor runs in OD.

Re: EFI throttle linkage/cable

Vince, 3.73, 255 45 18's (26.5 tall), .64 od. It cruises around 21-2200rpm . It's happy there. I think I would consider trying 3.55's one day but that day is far away.

Rick, what intake is that? I didn't think the rails would sit that low. Thank you for the picture.

That's exactly where I cruise...I think you will do great with this system.

Thanks much. BTW, here is my current set up with a proflo2
