I seardhed through the archives for some EFI conversion tips on a '65 Stang. I think that I'm doing something wrong on the search, because I'm sure that there has been plenty of questions asked about this.

I have considered doing the swap. One of my delimas is that I don't want to just put a stock 5.0 intake and injection on my motor. If I'm going to wind up buying preformce stuff, should I just start from scrath? Do I even need to buy any thing off of a 5.0?
The second delima I have is that I know very little about injection. What all do I need to make it work? Do I need the computer or just a hot wire? Is it worth screwing with? I've had the some Holley 750 for about 8 years now with no trouble. One of the reasons that I'm iterested in the injection is because (provided I have the money when it comes time) I want to get a SC.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Unless you know what you're doing you don't want to tackle that project, because you need a complete EFI wiring harness with PCM exhaust for O2 sensors, high pressure fuel pump with return line to tank etc. Call Holley about one of their systems. It's a lot more user friendly than trying to use OEM stuff. Be prepared for sticker shock when you check the price.

I'm scratching my head on a '95 stang efi problem and wondering why any sane person would want to put that sh!t in a nice '65 stang. Don't go there!

Doing it in a 68 cv. Initially going with AOD, too, but decided that my city and x-way driving plus an occassional jaunt didn't warrant the expense and whatever of doing that. Have a 91 mass air setup but would have gone with Explorer intakes had I known more when getting what I have. Also, Painless wiring is the way to fly, but I have a complete harness and a local tech said it's not that hard to do. '95's are a different story and not good conversion material. Wouldn't have even bothered with serpentine but I bought that also, so will use it. The later compressor is better, though, so should get good ac output. I have an all around good ratio rear for a C-4 (9" 3:25). Had I gone with AOD would have used an 8" traction lok 3:50. A friend is buying that with labor and know how. Why am I doing it?? For the same reason that others build up engines.....cause I want to.
