  • Supercharger or fuel injection?

  • #2
    Companies like Holley and Edelbrock sell throttle body injection units. With a little work, one of these units could be made to fit with or without the supercharger.

      You'll need a R2 water manifold, mount and tensioned pulley set-up. ( About $800 repro'ed)

        This is just my opinion, and is worth exactly what you paid for it, but I wouldn't bother messing around with throttle body injection. With port injection you know that you don't have any fuel distribution issues (like fuel "falling out" of the air on some runners more than others) due to manifold design, all you're moving is air. This is the BEST way to do FI IMHO and with TBFI you're only getting half the advantages. I'd either go all out or just stick with a carb.

        just my $0.02
