DIY Fuel Injection

#1

Post by Cougars_R_Grr8 » 09 Jul 2016, 13:11

So you want to add fuel injection to your Cougar but want to keep your original tank?

Holley now has a DIY fuel injection system that doesn't require cutting open the tank and welding it back together.. and no return line either.

The return is built in and the mat pulls the fuel to the pump so no need for baffles, even if only a corner of the mat is touching fuel.

Price isn't too bad at all either.

Considering how much it would cost to make a custom tank I think it averages out.

On the last episode of Gearz TV, Stacy David showed that pump going into a fuel tank.

Really? That seems like a pretty solid price for what you're getting...

Guess I find the whole EFI thing prohibitively expensive when considering going over from an (all new) carb setup. Also, I guess carbed engines fit my "vintage". Not that I would mind all the electronics, fuel supply management and stuff but...

The thing that bothers me with this fuel pump is all of the fuel lines that are now in the trunk laying there just waiting for some thing in the trunk to slide into it during an evasive maneuver.
I suppose that a person could make a shield and stuff but fuel lines spring leaks and I would rather the leak be out side of the vehicle.

You can also buy a sump system that goes inline between your mechanical pump and throttle body. If I did decide to go fi I would probably go that route. But still, another good option.
