1972 351 multiport conversion?

I have a completely built up 351windsor that puts out 500hp and equal torque. It is originally carbureted. I saw a kit that can convert this motor into a multiport injection setup, that comes with manifold, all sensors required, harness, etc..... Many companies make this kit apparently and i am sort of a noobie to the whole windsor build-up. has anyone used one of these kits on theirs and has it worked well for you? Which company did you go through (ex: Accel, edelbrock, holley)?? Thanks for any info you guys can give me.

Re: 1972 351 multiport conversion?

I personally have not ran one. I would like to experiment with it though. Holley or Edelbrock would be my choice. Edelbrock has been at this game a long time. I have heard good things about the kits. More power better fuel economy etc. You also get the computer stuff so you can trouble shoot it and tune it via a laptop computer. Or you can drag your desktop to the shop and use it lol. The carb is reliable works good and is easy to diagnose. Hey, if you got the dough to spend on it, call Edelbrock and let them set you up with one. I think you would like it.

Another option is a single plane manifold drilled and tapped for injector rails with a 5.0 computer controlling larger injectors.

Re: 1972 351 multiport conversion?

both very good suggestions... i'm far too lazy these days so i would probly just buy the kit. i was looking for more torque off the line so i might try to go with a dual plane with some long, tapered runners.. this motor can rev like a honda but i want it to have the balls to match. any idea if these kits are just bolt-ons, or are there certain things that must be machined?

As far as I know they are bolt on kits. Probably a weekend type deal.

Re: 1972 351 multiport conversion?

I have a TFS BoxR intake (EFI short ram type setup) and run it with Accel DFI 6 I can laptop tune it - it is more than a little intimidating for someone unless they have a good grasp of tuning an old style carb and dist I would farm it out to a reputable shop.
I did mine myself and it wasn't bad at all. I'm not going back to carbs
