Streetable Manual Injection?

.030 Over 283 In A Tubular Chassis Race Car Frame,non Belt Driven Fuel Pump,on Gas,#6 Injectors,202/160 Valves,510/310 Cam. 2 1/16 Hilborn Injection,manual Valve Body Tranny(powerglide Shorty) 14 Inch Drive Line,quickchange Rear,straightaxle Front. Total Weight On Unit W/driver 1675 Lbs.
Is The Manual Fuel Injection Going To Be A Feasible Idea Or Should I Go With Carb? Reason For Fuel Injection Is Authentic Look Of Race Car When It Was Raced. I Understand That The Worst Problem May Be Getting It To Idle & Snap Throttle Response.
Any Helpful Ideas Wanted,...thx

Here you go

The Megasquirt system..http://msefi.com/ this is a do-it-yourself EFI controller..should be able to convert the Hilborn to street with this..

The ole Hilborns did not idle well and were not really usable on a street car..Seen several try it..Myself I have seen the struggle with this idea and there have been some good reports on the megasquirt..

Good luck
Sam

Streetable Manual Fuel Injection

Dont Want To Go The Electronic Route If I Dont Have To. Is There Any Way To Maybe Go Smoother On The Cam & Still Live With The Snap Response & Need For A High Idle? This Will Just Be A Playtoy That's Only Driven From Time To Time. Cost Seems To Be Too High For Electronic Injection,...

Quickchange,

Just 2 cents from someone who has not been there and has not done that yet:
any mech fuel injection to me always been like a dream to come true. When i got the systems, could not resist to get them, but a fellow here uses tro tune them for race and told me that it is just not suited to street use, no matter how You look at it. The first thing he asked was about using auto trans with the loosiest converter available, to help overcame the snap at the gas pedal. I also remember something about being a nightmare to start, like was required to pressurize de fuel tank before because the gas pump at the injection does not self prime and the list goes on. To me it seems like enough.

Onemoretime,

Tks, will check them also. i'm in Brasil and inporting things are not all that easy. There is a company here, fueltech, that also produces efi controllers that are quite easy to deal, and I may go that route. Those tall stacks look so pretty darn cool that is just impossible to resist.

I'll second the megasquirt, i'm on my 3rd turbo efi engine, i'm not an electrical engineer or a computer programmer and they all run flawlessly
