Aw, sorry to hear about that Jeh.
I wish we'd had more time to prepare for our two going. That would have been some great Bacon Fests.

Well, the dog passed on last night.

Now I can finally crack the whip on those little fuckers.

Been working with my dad to take my mind off the dog.

Almost finished installing a throttlebody fuel injection system on the GTO:
   

I worked real hard to keep the wiring out of sight, so it still kinda looks like a carburetor, but has actual manifold vacuum, is easy to start, doesn't flood out, or do any of those other adorable carburetor things.

That is sweet. Carburetors should be relegated to the dustbin of history.

I've learned enough with my simple, stupid Webers to know that I don't feel like learning a whole other architecture.

I spent my youth driving vehicles with carbs and trying to keep the damn things running properly. I was so happy in 1994 to finally get a vehicle new enough that it came with a modern fuel system.

For being a frequently encountered and well documented use case, the 4 barrel V8 carburetor is a remarkably shitty solution.

It was barely adequate 40 years ago, before there was a widely available alternative. There is no reason I can think of to continue to use it.

I'm going to let it do it's "self tuning" thing here for a while, but 2 weeks down the road, it's going to my tuner to do the computer controlled timing, and get it a little more tailored to the engine.
