Okay, I'm bringing this back from the dead....lol

Has anyone looked into the F&B Throttle Bodies setups at all? I can't seem to figure out if they include the Electronics and what not to make it work or if I need to find the tuning side for it?

I'm just going to add my two cents. I wouldn't splurge for the Edelbrock kit just yet. As archaic as TBI is, it's really all most people need. The Edelbrock kit is a very simplistic version of MPFI. It costs too much in my opinion. The real advantage is the MPFI manifold Edelbrock makes for AMC engines. I'm working on a Ford based sequential MPFI system that uses Edelbrock's manifold at the moment. Right now, it looks like the cost will fall between $1000 and $1500. The real cost is in the programming equipment, so if more people did it, it could become quite economical. The Ford based system is light years ahead of the Edelbrock kit in terms of engine management and processing speed. It's able to keep a much tighter reign on the engine, resulting in maximum power, efficiency, and the cleanest emissions possible.

HOWELL! Just because I love mine. Who else can go 15 months in a FSJ and only top up the water and change the oil? NO WRENCHING FOR OVER A YEAR! Yes, it was boring; but I survived.

I only bring up F&B Throttle Bodies cause they have a EFI 6-pack for the 360 engine. I figured if I spend that kind of money, at least make it better in the performance side as well. Having a 6-pack without dealing with carbs sounds really sweet to me!

I found an EZEFI system on craigslist an jumped on it, it was just tested and complete. It sits on my 401 and I love it! Starts and runs like any other modern vehicle. I did later upgrade to a new poly tank and in tank fuel pump, most of the out of tank fuel pumps create some annoying noise and I was tired of it. I would endorse the EZefi system and do it again...
