    Edelbrock Pro-Flo 4 EFI

    Hi,

    has anyone fitted one of these to a SBC (or a Ford) ?
    https://roadcraftuk.co.uk/index.php?...product_id=790

    If so, was it worth it - power increase, drive-ability , pick up ?
    What did you do about fuelling - EFI pump & return line or one of these - https://roadcraftuk.co.uk/index.php?...product_id=808 ?
    Any other hints / tips / gotchas ?

    I have '97 Dax with this SBC https://roadcraftuk.co.uk/index.php?...y&path=162_165 so not sure how much extra the EFI will give for the 2 and a half grand it will cost!

    Cheers
    Geoff

    is that from scratch - or did you upgrade from carbs ?

    The edelbrock one above is a bit different to the Fitech system in that it's not injecting into the throttle body but directly behind each intake valve - which is what has got me interested.

    cheers

    Upgraded from a carb, best thing I did. I imagine direct injection should be even better.

    Really good fuel consumption starts on the button even after standing for 6 months.

    Geoff,

    Glad to see that there will (may?) be another Cobra replica in the north east with 21st century engineering embodied.

    Take care,

    I also have a Fi Tech, throttle body set up on the Mustang 289.
    Well happy with it.
    Mines on an Edelbrock Performer RPM manifold.
    As said above, it gives excellent economy too.

    Kev - How do you find driving with it, compared to a carby?

    Pretty good to be honest Kev.
    It's self learning, and on the computer / ECU you can see the AFR etc. that its trying to achieve.
    I've been well impressed with it.
    Also you can tweak many features if you have things you don't like.

    Daryn,

    assuming you have sidepipes, where did you put the O2 sensor ?

    Sure I've seen a thread on here somewhere about O2 sensor placement and it was suggested that positioning it in one of the downpipes was sufficient - rather than in the sidepipe ? (which would seem problematic - specially as they should be positioned above the horizontal?)

    Cheers.

    So may I ask how your little project is going (read your last installment in Snake Torque over xmas) got an ETA for completion ?

    Cheers
