    Plug and Play EFI

    I talked to these guys at Autorama, they have a 1 barrel TBI setup for the inline 6 Chevy. Roughly $1500 depending on options, but that can build the system to match whatever you have. It does require electronic ignition, but you can get a HEI system through them for about $200 more.

    The TBI unit will bolt directly to the 1 bbl stock intake.

    They have been around since 1997, they started out converting 300 ci Ford inline 6's to fuel injection for the airline industry.

    Holley sniper has a single barrel setup for 900.00 I think. They also have a double barrel setup too.

    I just put on a sniper 650 setup on my van. It's pretty sweet. Cold starts are history, fires right up and its programmable on the fly with data logging and self learning.

    The hardest part was plumbing a return line and fabricating a new throttle bracket.

    Yeah, it's much cheaper if you can do a 4 bbl EFI conversion, but this is the first plug and play EFI for inline 6's I've seen since [MENTION=732]panelmanrd[/MENTION] was doing the TBI swap from 4.3 V6 engines, and he has said those are drying up in the boneyards.

    It would cost $1675 for my van(s) with turbo.
    Would be nice to have the closed loop/self-learning feature because I already have a wide band O2, and you can see in real time how much fuel is actually being wasted from running too rich at low speeds and light load.

    There's a lot of standalone EFI options out there now, and they keep getting cheaper. I can remember when it cost about the same to install a supercharger as it did to go EFI. Now it can be done for under $2000 for almost any street engine.

    pretty sure Dan65 is running the 2bbl setup from affordable-fuel-injection on a clifford intake. Pretty cool, and he says it drives great, but he did have to mod the doghouse to fit it. The 1bbl setup is neat because you could probably run it with no mods to the 1st gen doghouse.

    what would be really cool would be a 3x1 throttle body fuel injection setup on a offenhauser 3x1 manifold
