Blown or injected?

Hey guys, wondering which direction to go on the coupe. It's got dual quads on it now, but I feel like changing in up. I'm takin' a poll. Hilborn efi or 671 blower? Can't afford to do both, so I need to pick. Let me know!

You will get more power from the blower.

Is the engine built, cam, compression, blower pistons etc. to run a blower? Also, why is this in the garage/tool section???

I think I might go with the blower for now, then inject it maybe over next winter. Hilborn efi 4 port on top! I'll try to post some pics, sorry if they look stretched out.

You can still get them. I think I have one still amongst the mountains of tee shirts I have. My wife has threatened me if I bring anymore home she will start burning them

This is a general question as well as a possible answer to your "dilemma."

Can you run a wilder cam with port fuel injection vs. carb or throttle body injection----because with port the fuel is injected at or near the intake valve and therefore "it" does not care much about airflow or lackof airflow at low rpm due to a funky cam?


So your biggest problem in life is to decide between blower or injection? 3 window, who are you?
