    Ah, but with the EFi you can tune in a nice overrun shotgun burst (both barrels) if you are completely childish (I am) and feasibly could make it switchable (I've never bothered.

    When I had carb's on I got worse MPG, but that may have been as much due to my inability to tune the carb's rather than because it was carb's.

    At the moment the car has a 2.8 v6 with efi in it, so it has all the necessary gubbins to run the rover efi, learning how to get the best out of the Holley might be interesting!

    I know of a Cobra in Derby which the owner has 'mirror' polished up the RV8 plenum, rocker covers, inlet manifold etc etc. They've come up very well indeed.

    Not being a chromosexual I prefer the dull sandcast look although I would like to flycut the fins on the plenum but as it's not flat it's a bit difficult to do.
