Completely off topic. *bragging*
« on: September 15, 2016, 10:26:19 AM »
So after 4 weeks of cold and wet weather - and my pickup truck breaking down.. i decided.. **** it, i take the big boys car out of the garage.
It has a 489 bigblock and they are known to be a bit hesitant with my weather.. Especially on E85.. But in a glorious moment i installed a Holley EFI in it.. And.. well listen..

I actually didn't have any pics taken after the install i guess i was busy driving it instead....

This was during the EFI install anyway..


I did make some custom bracket for the pressure regulator on the cnc machine tho.


And some other parts i was terribad at havent photographed it seems.

Yeah it sure comes with a special sound profile, its a bit of  a tugging noise..  didnt wanna put in a balance tube in the exhaust because i like that the pulses differentiate between the pipes so noticeable.. but i would gain about 50hp if i did... The addiction to horsepower may overcome my love for the sound.

Sounds like a  :proj: madmodder project! A balance pipe with built-in butterfly valve & cabin control - so you can have the sound when you want it, OR the horsepower!  :poke:

Edit to add: You could hook it to the throttle.... so when you mash the loud pedal, the butterfly opens & gives you max HP; back it off & you've got that noise again  :smart:

hehe i could actually even hook it into the Holley EFI system and control it on the RPM range or on the MAP range for timing when you actually would need the balanced tube to open in the power curve. ;D
