    Then what about his mass air sensor?

    Another reason I kinda like the FAST EFI setup. I'm going to do more information seeking. As I stated..... I understand the SEFI style (an injector at every cylinder) may be better over all, but if I lost a few horsepower, I can live with that. I am ready for something a bit different, and that air cleaner and actual ram air sounds like a really cool idea, and the self learning FAST computer also sounds like a good idea.. I also like the idea of not pulling the intake and air intake to get my valve covers off. LOL.

    90% of aftermarket stuff is sd and uses a map sensor. Sefi also have virtually no performance or gas mileage benefit, so most are also batch fire.

    With the ram air a like a 70's car, it would be way easier to adapt a carb style throttle body. More power everywhere and cheaper.

    I went carb for the cleaner look and it being cheap as can be. That was around the time the fast system was still new and pretty expensive along with the vic jr efi and they were almost the only options. I have the same round about idea in the long run with fitech. They make re-pop boss shakers. I dont think you'd be losing much in the way of performance.

    If you want to fab something you can try and re-create the system used on 03-04 Mach 1 Mustangs.

    I like the shaker, and at one time, years ago, I had thought of going that route. BUT, with the current hood, it is always my very favorite part of the car and stays.

    I have also thought of FITech system as well. With the master kits (EFI unit, O2 sensors, fuel lines and pump etc), they run almost the same as FAST. I will do more research to see which one is actually the better of the two, or, if they are practically the same in fit, form and function.

    I am always under a zero dollar budget. I have to sell parts or trade or whatever to get funds for the Sport, so, it takes time. That isn't a problem as it gives me time to study up on all of this. I am still going back and forth on this stuff, but the more I think about it, the more I am wanting to do it. I also wonder how good the computer is that runs it all. 30 years of technology has passed since my car was built, and it's 30 year old or older technology running it. Yes, there are new computers for the cars we have, but I do like the ram air idea along with doing something different and still having the car be very functional and all purpose.

    That's kind of what I'm after, but I don't want the oval air cleaner. Never did like those unless they are on top of two carbs. I want a round air cleaner like the 71 Mustang. Probably Ford Blue with a chrome top, and of course, the rubber seal. I can fabricate a duct for the hood, but it has to be right. That hood can't be messed up with ugly thrown together leftovers.
