    The most important thing is the correct barrell valve spool for naturally aspirated injection and not blown injection.
    Describe what you have....what you are trying to do.

    Something like that, or one a dual quad intake of some sort, would I have to inject at the ports? or can it still be done under the hat?

    Is there a perfect comp ratio for injected alky?

    N/A as much compression as you can get.

    Typically the guys use a Victor cause Enderle makes a top for it. You do inject at the ports. You need a hat (Bird or bug), typical barrell valve, a special spool for that barrell, line kit, nozzles bodys, typically nozzle sizes in the 30's. 80a pump.
    First you start off with no high speed....2 lb light check spring in the bypass off the barrell.
    That's the standard deal.
    On a converter car....held on the line....you may want to replumb the system and create a "secondary" pop off to keep the car from loading up when staged.
    But start with basic system.

    You have to be willing to fiddle with it. And don't think that because you "now have a plenum" over a set of upright injectors.....that you are gonna gain a bunch cause it isn't there. The theory is there but the results were not. My experience with these deals....they are finicky in low throttle open situations where a set of uprights run just as good and not as picky. Your mileage may vary.

    Heres mine, it ran pretty good, but didnt make any more power than gas and carbs on the same motor. It was 14:1 or so.
