I ran across this on E-bay for a 351w. They say that Aftermarket electronic fuel injection is very streetable, not like my mechanical set-up. If I had a 351w I would look at this set-up. I know it looks way cool. I always liked the way stacks looked, kinda nostalgic. This would look radical and since it is electronic it may be streetable. Unfortunately, I have nothing it fits!

Nostalgic looking for sure

I'm always skeptical of high dollar items like this ($6k invested ), and why the seller is wanting to let it go if it's such a trick setup. If I had six grand to piss away, I'd probably buy a Jerico

V8 thumper,
I bought my Enderle hat and tunnel ram, pump and all the lines for 1200.00 off of ebay. I contacted the owner to ask why he wanted to let it all go. He said he couldn't get the set-up sorted out but he assured me he had over $2500.00 invested in it. When I got it I did a test on the barrel valve to set it up for 20 - 21 % and I found out the thing was in backwards. Also, all the nozzles were pointing "up" instead of down. I thought no wonder he couldn't sort it out. I contacted him to tell him what I found, but he assured me they had tried " everything". The set-up runs fine on my car. Bottom line is sometimes folks just let stuff go to get it out of their sight.

How much more power would you get over a Holley with the Kinsler?

Buster,
I guess it depends on the set-up. Some cars might improve more than others. Direct port injection usually performs better than a carburetor and electronic fuel injection would be even better, fuel economy and performance wise. I knocked about 4 tenths off my time when I switched from a 950 HP Holley to the injection set-up. I don't have the advantage of EFI though. I have checked into converting mine to EFI and it can be done easily, IF I supply plenty of $$. So it will have to wait. The guys at this site seem to have a handle on cool looking yet functional EFI.
