Holley TBI

A lot of people start thinking about how they're going to build an engine a while before they can afford it....such is my case. I've been spoiled by fuel injection, and want my next motor to have it on there, and can't afford a super-cool tunnel ram Holley fuel-injection kit. Here lies a bump in the road-If I'm not mistaken, the Holley TBI kit bolts up to a four-barrel manifold. My engine has center-bolt heads...can you put a four-barrel manifold from 86 and back on centerbolt heads? If not, do they make four-barrel manifolds for centerbolt heads, that aren't for Vortec? I've never mix-matched the crossover years before, and wanted to ask before I spent way too much money on something I can't even use. Thanks for looking, and if I'm just plum crazy, I give you permission to say so.

Sorry work, but I'm not too sure if it works like that (don't know too much about efi), so I don't have an answer. I did see this on another thread a while back.

It's a VFI system and bolts right on where any carb should go. It has the injectors inside the "carb", making it a total bolt on EFI conversion. Here's the website so you can check it out.

thanks

I've never seen that one before; that's got the cool carburetor look instead of all that other mess. I'll check it out and see what all else I need to go with it, with prices. They can really pump out a lot of hp, as the website says. Thanks for the reply, that's something I was looking for.

No problem.
If I wasn't building a blower motor, I would definately go with it too. That thing just looks too damn cool!

With building a blower motor, you have a supercharger on top, driven by the pulley and belt system, right? What would be the fuel discharge in a blower setup like this?

You're right about the blower, but I don't know what you mean by fuel discharge...

What I mean is, carb or fuel injection for a blower setup?

You can use either. I'm pretty sure that this set-up would work with two of them on top of a blower, but that's not the look I'm going for.
For blowers there's carbs, mechanical injection, and now efi. The mechanical is a race only app, since they don't perform too well at partial throttle. The work great @ WOT though. Carbs make blowers streetable because of all the adjustments, and then there's efi which is expensive.
