While getting rid of some junk today I picked up a alluminum cross fire injection intake with the 2 tbi carbs.I didnt need it but the guy basically gave it to me.I have a 1973 350 and I thought about maybe bolting the cross fire set up on it.I just have the intake and carbs,what else do i need to make this rig work in a 73 Camaro or 71 Nova.Any information,web sites,pictures,etc. on the cross fire injection would be greatly appreciated...thanks

I would leave it in the garage for a conversation piece. People didn't nickname it "Cease-fire" injection for no reason. Also, these manifolds were known to cause fires. The design creates very poor fuel distribution and fuel can puddle in places inside the manifold, causing engine fires.

I had a Crossfire Z as a daily driver for years and it always ran perfect. I'm not sure it will bolt to your heads though. I think it has those bolts that bolt straight up and down in addition to the standard bolt angle. Can you check and let me know ?

These things flowed about 400 cfm and were noted for the injectors gumming up in short order. Gas was not nearly clean enough then, probably why this unit is not on a car. Have to have computer, harness, all sensors, maybe a separate module to fire the injectors, etc,. Complicated and not worth the trouble. Damn shame though, these really look mean.

It is not worth the effort. You would need the computer, and all the sensors. There is a reason people do conversions with TPI and not the crossfire.
