cheap high performance efi
I have been looking through old posts and alot of diy efi sites and been pondering some ideas of my own. I am looking into building a turbo (maybe twin) sbc thats fuel injected for my v8 powered bug. I allready have a little 283 that i am going to run now, I just want to get some ideas together so over the next few years i could build a more powerful motor for it on the side. Anyways, I was thinking of building my own efi setup rather then handing a couple g's to someone else. I am trying to determine the best approach for about 500 soild hp. I was thinking of taking an old vic jr. single plain and drilling and welding in bosses for the injectors, and using fuel rails off maybe a old tpi setup. For a throttle body i was thinking of taking an old carb (maybe a q-jet) and attaching a tps to it. My other idea was taking a old tpi setup and rebuilding that, in either caase i would probibly go with new larger injectors and for sure use a tuneable ecu like the megasquirt, with a new wiring harness.
Any ideas would be great!, I will post some updates of the bug soon.
