Fun! Ok, here's my stuff;
Old, original, pre 69 Camaro engine, old.
L88 bought in 1968. Car bought in 1969. L78 finally broke in 1974. Installed L88 after updating it to open chamber and LS7 rods with boron bolts and true-locks and off-road aluminum heads.
After living with various carbs for another 20 years or so, Holley came out with Projection4. Bought it. It worked OK but still had 'consistency' problems. This winter we pulled the engine and freshened-up stuff. But not the FI. Now it's very strong and consistent. We have yet to find a MPH that the engine CAN'T smoke the tires by punching it. (faster that 60 hasn't been done yet because of traffic) As far as consistency, I suspect the intake manifold seal. It's working great now.
The car hasn't been seriously raced since 1970. Tomorrow the DOT slicks, skinny front tires and wheels arrive. The 90/10 shocks came today and are installed. The rest is on my web site. The first race is Saturday, baring rain.
It's not my second childhood, the mortgage is PAID-OFF!

EFI section :hurray: Great addition for the site. :thumbsup:
Here's my hodge/podge of parts.

Gen 1 383 SBC
Vic jr converted to EFI by Wilson manifolds
72# RC Injectors
Rick's stainless tank, w/ Aeromotive Eliminator pump inside
Accufab 1230cfm throttle body
MSD billit dual sync distributor, for cam and crank refference
FAST XFI controller running in sequential mode
Aeromotive boost refference regulator, set at 45# base presure
130 amp MSD alternator, need lots of power to run all this stuff:yes:
2 bar GM map sensor

This combo has worked well for me, up to 17# of boost, at that point it's seeing about 90% injector duty cycle.

Here is what I have been up to lately.

It is a LS1/T56 out of a '02 Camaro SS that I have put in my '69 Z/28. Before this conversion I had done the Protouring treatment on the car with C4 brakes and Hotchkis TVS and the Guldstrand Mod.

Expect a lot from this new drivetrain and it will be tuned in hte future. Only modification now is the 1 3/4" headers that will require a tune of the fuelcurves.

I converted an old bug catcher to DFI, it sits on top of a 6-71 blower.
I pieced the system together myself and got the electronics from Blower Drive Service. They will gladly sell any part that you ask for, but technical services are really crappy.
They claim that it's a plug-n-play system. It can't be farther from the truth. Craig (he showed up on Monster Garage when they built a blown Caddy-Craig's tuning was far from perfect on that one too) is head of the tech department, he was no help at all. I sent the ECM back for programming a second time, the car wouldn't even run. It would start and die w/no attempt to even idle.
To make a longer story shorter, I wiped out all of BDS's programming and tuned the thing myself.
I give it a few tweeks every time I drive the thing. It's slowly getting closer to perfection.

SBC with a Lingenfelter super ram. Older technology but it runs well. I’m looking at upgrading the ECU to the Holley Dominator system soon since the GM computer from the early 90s is seriously limited

Terminator Stealth, Nice looking setup.
I'm considering this one but unsure because they're said to not fit GM's OEM 2" drop base air cleaner, maybe Holley has since updated the original design.
Can you confirm?
