I totally agree with Bill. You have to be more precise on what the application is when running this set up. Adam
P.S. They are a handful for the best tuners to get close to correct and the ones that have never run them better have a good friend that knows the system or melt downs will occur.

-how much do you have to spend on the project?
-There a guy on hre.com that had a complete stack system for $2800 listed in the parts for sale.

Yes they are a lot of "fun" to tune.

Here's my late Uncles '23 T that my grandfather and I are putting back together.

I've always been partial to Crower's mechanical fuel injection system because of the short long stacks with anodized colored velocity stacks reminds me of a wild steam calliope to me. Though if ever there was an application for a wide band O2 sensor this would be it. (along with thermocouples at each exhaust port).

I like LOOK the hilborn inj. set-up...but tuning is a PITA!

I ALSO like the look of that Chopped 60's Chevy Truck with the 90's Stepside bed on it, with the rollpan, and what appears to be the ZR1 `tails......stuffin' a bit of rubber too I see....Cool truck!

them stacks are the 2cool4school theres no dought about it and the hillborn setup is nostalgia all the way however it was never intended for street use. theres no mid range metering to speak of .
they can be run on the street but there aint nothing smooth about it except at an idle and when you stomp it. they have to use a riseing pressure design pump to operate corectly and these systems are fairly sensitive to atmospheric conditions. (a lot of tuneing) ive seen one at a show with electric injectors but i dont know if it was a kit or homebrew. it did seem pretty smooth though so it can be done.

the hillborn website actualy spells it out pretty good for someone starting off in the injectin game and they have excelent tech, support. if your buying a used system they will tell you what to look for in a component / diagrams/ how to set up an electric fuel pump to bypass the mech. unit for starting etc.
