tcoop Thanks for all the help. I had some unexpected things come up and had to put my C10 on the back burner. I hope to work on it this weekend and I will check the fuse and do the things everyone suggested. Thanks again for the input

apexrig1 Hey thanks for the link. But I think in going to bite to bullet and save my
Pennies and go with the efi setup from bds.

against all odds 4) P.S., if you look at the 5" external filter, it appears to be about the same size (possibly smaller) than a filter you might find on a stock 350. Therefore, how much restriction are we really talking about here?

against all odds i remember what i wanted to ask yesterday:

3) How did GMC handle the filter issue?

apexrig1 Well that looks like it will work pretty good! There is hope!

GT23T Check out the plate for a blower by Autotrends EFI. It lets you run the bugcatcher on top.

Michaelelcano He is using an out of the box bds system. The injectors sit in a plate that sits between the bugcatcher and the blower.

against all odds Thanks for the article links. Admitedly, i had never actually tried what they did---i only "thought" it might be possible. i was thinking about going back to tunnel ram and 2 carbs and abandonning the injector idea, but after reading the article, there is renewed hope.

Do you know where they/he/she is injecting the fuel?

Michaelelcano Read these 2 pages. The guy had the exact same issue as you and had an interesting solution.

apexrig1 Sorry for the confusion. It's an enderle 3 hole style hat. Reason why I said hilborn was because I was looking at the hilborn electric fuel injection kit.

4 Jaw Chuck You can buy filters for Hillborn style hats, Jegs sells them!

I'm confused?

NOlowrider I wouldn't even run a 396 with only the one 950. Like Fbird said, its a matter of fuel distribution. Maybe two 600's or 700's. That's just my opinion though.

I think the Streetcatcher looks cool, I don't know anyone that has one or know how they perform. They have some nice rides on the site that run them, so I guess you can do it.
03-26-2012 08:08 PM
apexrig1 I had planned on doing it the "right way" but after finding about the lack of filter in the hat was quite discouraged. So just looking at other options. As many people would say it would be lame to run the streetcatcher setup. Maybe it is. But it's an option and I like to think it does look quite sharp. And I would never plan on trying the single carb on a 540. If the efi won't pan out I would be probably going alot smaller. Probably 396 with the 950cfm carb. But right now it's just in the planning phase. So you know how that goes!

against all odds i've been wondering about this dilema myself.

My view is that the only way it can be done is to make a "tray" to house a flat filter that will go between/under the hat and on top of the blower. If fuel is going to be injected into the blower, then the tray must go under the hat but before/above the fuel block.

a) If the filter does cause a restriction (would it really be that high a restriction.....?) then can't we comphensate for that by adding a little more boost? i'd be willing to sacrifice a little power for protection. Has anyone actually shown how much (if any) restriction an inside filter really poses?

2) As far as the streetcatcher thing; My feelings on these products can be summed up in a not so nice word that begins with a "W" and ends with ing. If you're going to do something, then do it the right way. On the other hand, if it's looks you're after then i suppose they're ok. i'm actually suprised D.G. would have these things on his website.
