Re: Multipoint EFI for my 1969 Restomod.

I think I went with a pair of Flex-a-Lite 3,000 CFM units, but I cannot recall as it has been about 7 years now. I would go with the highest CFM you can get in a 16" fan that allow 2 to be installed side by side.

Re: Multipoint EFI for my 1969 Restomod.

I found that I needed dual electric fans with a shroud - I custom made one from Aluminum - and it works great. I upgraded my Alternator a long time ago to a modern unit with 140 Amps. You nailed the issue, I had overheating issues until I got the shroud set up and more powerful fans. Turns out it re...

Re: Multipoint EFI for my 1969 Restomod.

I see around 18 mpg if I drive sanely. Wondering if this new setup will get me a bit more.
I find it ironic that my AWD Cadillac CTS Wagon gets about 17 mpg... of course, the AWD and mass are major factors, it allegedly weighs about the same, so is far more dense.

Re: Multipoint EFI for my 1969 Restomod.

I first got into Toronados in the early 80s, I had a 1968 W-34 with the console shifter. I would kill for that now... well, the console shifter and maybe the trans, but the car was junk after existing only 11 years as I lived in New England at the time This one I purchased in 2010 out here in the Se...

Re: 1st Generation Toronado Steering Box

I recall it being in the $300 or so range, which I felt well worth it given how tight and smooth it is.

Re: 1st Generation Toronado Steering Box

It might be a bit late, but I had my Box rebuilt by Redhead here in Seattle and it is fantastic. So tight the slightest turn results in a change in direction, exactly as I requested. I wanted as close to a Rack and Pinion as possible, and they sure did deliver.

Re: Multipoint EFI for my 1969 Restomod.

I hear you. I have now been through three EFI efforts, each of which runs around $4,000 to $5,000 when all is said and done. I have also built the Motor twice, so I guess it all fits under the Money Pit heading... If it works this time, and I have every reason to think it will - and it is what I wan...

Re: Multipoint EFI for my 1969 Restomod.

I am using, as noted in my OP but apparently not very clearly, the RPM Aluminum Toronado Intake. I will be welding in the bungs that come with the kit - I originally planned to use the Bosses cast into the Manifold, but they are vertically oriented and I need to angle the injectors at 30 from Vertic...
