Re: EFI on a 302

I too might struggle with clearance in any of the candidates were higher than a standard Holley.

EFI on a 302

Has anyone on the forum and experience of the Holley/Edelbrock/Fitech EFI herb replacement type kits on the market?
Performance, economy, ease of starting and ease of setup seem to be the plus points.
Anybody fitted one?

Weather is looking good for Sunday so barring unforeseen circumstances, I hope to be there too in the Hawk.

Re: New Member - Long time Lurker

That’s the way I like to think I’ve got my car, hopefully a “period” look but without trying to get every detail of the original cars. I don’t think the originals had heated seats for example.....😜

Re: New Member - Long time Lurker

Welcome David, wasn’t me at the track day.
Sounds like a nice spec for the Ace, should give it a lovely period feel.

Re: NEW! AC COBRA Models from AC Cars!

The pictures show very cheap looking seats for a 130K car.
I have Hawk seats in my...er....Hawk and they are properly comfy👍

Re: NEW! AC COBRA Models from AC Cars!

Even the “standard” offering from them has a glassfibre body and Chevy engine......so sort of like a very expensive Dax......😳

Re: NEW! AC COBRA Models from AC Cars!

Exciting eh? And now with “composite” bodies (glassfibre).
Apparently the owner of the AC has an alleged “reputation” for not delivering on his promises (or so I’ve read)
Such a shame, it just tarnishes AC car’s reputation.
The 2.3 may be a hell of an engine......but not in a Cobra.
