    I am engine dumb but want this







    OK, well that particular one is a faux Hilborn style induction. Pricey as hell for something that fake. But would suit my needs fine. I just want the look sticking thru my hood.

    Now I have been trying to get on Hilborns site www.hilborninjection.com to get pricing and info for their actual EFI conversion kits, but it won't load right now. I'll keep trying, but figured if anyone had any insight they could lend me?


    The bitter after-taste of a poor quality job will last far longer than the sweetness of that cheap price!

    My motor is bored 40 over, Stage 2 cam, Headman headers, and a Holley 600cfm carb. It does ok for me. I wanna make it pretty now.
    I can do almost anything else with the truck but never learned shit motor wise. :nono:





    Here is a crappy vid I took. Sorry it was windy as hell and you can hardly hear the motor at all.

    I know of a couple hot rodders who use BDS electronic fuel injection kits that are very similar to the Hillborne kits. No matter what, they are pricey. The standard kits, like say Edelbrock kits, are pricey alone. Add in all of the flash of these kinds of custom looking jobs and it just keeps adding to the cost. They do look awesome though. Something about those offset or even the symetrical stacks just does it for me.

    I found some kits around 5k. Not really looking to spend quite that much. If I can get something in the 2.5k I would feel better about it.
    But I am looking at finding the fake kit now cheaper. I just really want the look. I don't drive the truck alot anyways. But then it is ugly and that may be part of the reason:0
