Tell us a little about you. What cars you are interested, where you are from and why you are interested in learning to tune.

Just signed on to the HPA system and hoping it will help me with the steep learning curve of EFI. I come from a carburetion background, thought I knew it well till I put 48IDA Webers onto my car. That also got me accustomed to steep learning curves.

Finally got the Webers tuned out and running as they should, so now I step up to the real challenge - to install and make functional an EightStack style Weber EFI system.

The car is a 65 Shelby Cobra replica. 427FE big block Ford. More info on my website http://62shlb.com

A photo of the injection system setup as I was working on it.

They look like Webers but have Ford injectors buried inside them. The ECU is a Performance Electronics PE3

The system is setup and I have started it for the first time, just venturing into the tuning process. Kind of different than twisting a screwdriver or turning a wrench. A whole new bag of tricks to learn.

Thanks for having me aboard

Hi Paul and welcome to HPA.

That would make a great build thread if you were willing to expand on it, there's a section of the forum dedicated to it.

How are you finding the transition to injection?

Paul,

I am from Missouri as well. Have you found a local shop with a steady state dyno to tune on?

I am in the Saint Louis area. Local shop with Steady State is Franjo Speed in Chesterfield Valley.

Where are you located?

Paul

I am in central Missouri. I have never hear of Franjo but looking at their site, they look top notch. I will keep them in mind.
