Re: Fitech

Got my tbi unit......fuel,pump is bout a month out
Pace sends you the corvette filter and fittings so you just have to run return from filter to tank instead of from tbi to tank

Wow! These guys seem really reasonable in their prices. So, what's the total system going to cost ya? I know the others are over $2K by the time you buy the fuel pump kit..

Yes...it also came with the fittings for the fuel filter and an fittings too.
So.......for the fitech, the corvette filter with all the fittings, the inline pump with 2 billet filters, all the an fittings for tbi to pump etc, 20 ft of fi rated -8 hose and 5 ft of -6 hose I'm in it for $1198.
I think the only extra I'm going to need is a 5/16 tube to change my return in my fuel sending unit, some wire to extend a few wires and maybe some clamps to hold fuel hose.
Not to bad I dont think for what I have.

And I'm pretty sure I can make a duraspark dist......which I have several......work for timing control for next to no $$$.
But that will be phase 2.....want to get it running on fuel only first.

Very Kool! I put in the Generic Howell TBI and it cost me a little over $1200. The Howells don't have timing or Learning and I had to stuff the ECM under the dash

All factory systems are self correcting and learning!

Howell chooses to only use half the system so you only get half the benefits of a good EFI system.
I do have upgrade kits for the those that bought the Howell system that upgrades it to be more like my system with fuel and timing control.

nightglide, are you going to replace the stock 5/16" fuel tank outlet line in the fuel pickup to 3/8" as per the Fitech instructions? It's the one thing I'm not sure what I'm going to do...or if it's even really necessary...

I am waiting for my system to come in and I'm just going over stuff before I dive in...

Nope...on my truck the supply hose is already 3/8". The return is only 1/4" tho so I am changing that one to 5/16"
If yours is only 5/16" I would change it. They say best is 1/2"....at least 3/8" or else it will starve the fuel pump and wear the pump out prematurely

The one thing I'm debating is how far to extend the return. Factory is just a few inches into tank. I watched videos saying if it's above the fuel level it will airate the fuel in the tank and the pick up will pick up air and get uneven pressure. I think I will extend mine down with a bend so it's away from pick up.

How would you even change the tubes on the fuel pickup? Use a screw on bulkhead or weld it? For the return line, I was thinking about putting a return adapter like this:

But my j10 has what I can tell 1.5" hose, so that won't fit...

It would be so much easier if it could use the stock fuel and return lines.

Cut old tubes, drill holes bigger, solder new bent to match larger hard lines to plate.

Yup.....what baby wag said. Cut old return, drill it out, solder in new 5/16 return bent the way I want.
I thought bout that filler return thingy.....I have some steel tubing in my filler neck already that I could remove and and a tube but I think other way is easier. Ito not to hard to drop tank on a truck.
On a side note.......I did manage to get o2 sensor and temp sensor installed today......bout 5% there! Lol
