So...Me Too...

I had a carb on my first build, a 390, and liked it quite well. It didn't seem to need too much attention for normal use on local runs. I could tell when I went to higher elevations that it was in need of adjustment but as I was just visiting I didn't do any.

When I built my FFR I decided to go with FI and used the donor set-up, '88 Mustang 5.0 HO. I really like the convenience of this set-up, as well as the increased mileage (16 on the carb'd 390 and 25 on the FI 302).

As I get closer to finishing my '67 Cougar, I'm leaning to the "carb look" for the same convenience. I will get it running with the stock Holly carb and switch to FI later on (I did add the O2 ports when I welded up the exhaust system).


Driving a car like this is about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on.
