    Default EFI Blower Progress and Question..pics

    In case some of you do not know here is a link to my 8-71 EFI project for my BBC Jet Boat.

    http://www.tjsperformance.com/blowerEFI.htm

    Anyway I was able to get the fuel rails machined (not on my lathe, too small) on my Father in-laws buddy lathe a while ago. I brought my -10AN O-ring tool with me a did it there.
    Fast forward to today. I had to make stand-offs for the fuel rail to the injector plate. Took some measurements and milled away. The bolt that holds the stand offs to the plate is counter bored. Tomorrow I will finish drilling and tapping into the injector plate and also in the fuel rails where the stand-offs will mount. Pics.
    As you can see in the last 2 pics the valve covers hit the Dyers manifold. I know I can put a nice radius on the manifold but my options are open to new valve covers as well.

    Looks good. The fuel rail mounting is real clean.
    The Bugcatcher gives a nice low profile look.
    Did you make the spacer that the injectors mount in ?
    What about putting the screen above the injectors ?
    It makes sense blocking off some of the butterflys.
    I thought they just blocked the center one though.

    Yes Mark I made the plate with a friend who has a Haas machine.

    I have to order another blower base gasket and the screen will be above the injectors.

    The 2 outer butterflys are blocked off and the center one acts as a throttle body.

    I did not do that, I bought it that way from BDS$$. I will take a pic and post it so you can see how they did it. Now I know how they did this I could have done it myself.

    Cave, I cannot "adjust" my valve covers. I may have to mill the overhang on the lower intake.

    Thanks. This Summer should be good. Piss the cops off some more I guess.
    Got any links for the valve covers. I have a lot of work to do.

    TJS I ended up milling the valve covers about .07 on the inbound side. I would rather of machined the intake but it was on and I have no patients. If possible load a few vids of it running.
