250 2v throtle body

hi guys, just a quick question. i have a 250 2v and was looking at different options besides the old 350 holley. Was talking to a mate who is adding a throtle bodie to his V8. i asked him about throtle bodies and what they do as i am not educated on that area. He suggested to have a look at early ea's cause they came out with a throtle body type set up that he thinks wouldn't be that hard to adapt to the 2v manifold using the basic sensors. Anyone have any idea if this is possible and what pros and cons are there in this set up.

thanks chris

Throttle body?

I thought they were used only on EFI cars! Would be extremely expensive to adapt an EFI setup onto a 2v.

What problems are you having with the 350 that makes you want to change?

Just like a Tsunami.

Re: 250 2v throtle body


I am looking at doing the CFI convo on an XA with the 250 2V .... still just sorting (.. and sourcing) some parts and tech ideas .... let me know how you go as I have a couple of months before I get bogged down an' set fore to the thing ...

Not a bad idea, something very different, and the 2v head aint a bad piece of kit!
