Agreed. really have no place on a street car. They are only really useful if you are constantly keeping the revs over 4-5k (ie racing). However if you're still keen I believe Motec has one available.

Hi Till, I was looking at getting the same set up you've mentioned & found about 4 different set-ups out on the Australian market. The first was a custom system like on the V8 supercars but at $30,000+ it's way out of most peoples league. The second was through the Injection Perfection group in Sydney but I've seen it on a few crappadores at the NATS & they were pretty unreliable. The third system you may have seen on a maroon EB featured in Zoom magazine, was by a guy from Romano Racing in Qld. This was a hybrid system based on the injection perfection but with shorter trumpets & matched to the falcon motors. I actually spoke to Bob Romano & he told me that they'd be sourcing a new set-up from a group in Cambpelltown NSW. I'll dig up the phone numbers soon but they were developed for the replica GT40 kit cars using the 5.0 efi engines. Awesome set up, mega torque but around $3,400. & you may have hassles with rego.
