And so it begins...

Make your Cougar run faster, handle better, and jump higher... okay maybe not jump higher. If you feel the need for speed, this is the place.

Good luck with the installation! I installed the FiTech last summer.

I've been looking at the same kit. What are you doing on the fuel tank and return line?

My plan is to use the stock 3/8" line to feed the engine and I bought 25' of aluminum fuel line to run the return down the passenger side and use the tank drain as the return location.

Nice! keep everyone post on the results if you dont mind! I have decided to go EFI just a matter of when and which system I want to run. Gotta get the car back together first before I worry about EFI.

Until the thermostat opens you may not get the correct water temp.

No. It is installed correctly. The focus on the picture makes it look like it is backwards.

This is cool.
Can I ask? What is the benefit of switching from carburetor to EFI?
