I'd love to come up and help but will be away this weekend. I just installed this very same system on a 68 Corvette with a complete new fuel system also. Put in a 5 speed also in place of the 4 speed. The only part of the install I could not do was the bung being welded in. I have no welder either. Have a friend who does my welding for me. His particular ignition system does not allow the computer to control timing so that was not part of the equation either. Pretty simple install and within minutes the system after install was running smoothly. I drove the car back to his house 60 miles away and it was a totally different car going home then it was driving to my house. He is really loving the fuel injection. Keep us posted on progress.

Good luck with a quick and easy install today. Finished mine this morning. Don't forget to crack the idle screw open a turn before you start it. I couldn't get mine to idle, and when i went back and read the diretions, plain as day, it tells you to do that before trying to start. Oops. Here she is running:

The install was relatively straight forwards. My car is quite custom, so it had some unique things to work through, and I had to replace the fuel line and add a return line. Some wiring issues as well, but it fired up first time as promised!

Felt so much better and stronger! Can't wait to get it out on a long drive!

More details to come.

Great job guys! I got my Fitech installed also. A couple wiring issues and a 180 degree timing slowed us down, but that fitech fired up with easy set up.
