Yeah, that's what Darth Vader thought too...come to the dark side Luke!

I've got the intake, the 160lb injectors, the throttle body and my son is working on building the fuel rails for me. I'm still deciding on which ECU to go with...Fast, Megasquirt, Big Stuff 3, Holley Dominator, and the list goes on. But before any of that can happen I have to decide if I want to use the ECU to drive the ignition or if I should just stay with my MSD 7+ digital. There is a lot to be said for having just one complete system that works together, but I've been using MSD products for ignition forever and it would be a waste of processor not to use the MSD. I don't know which way to go.

I have a couple 3g 130amp alternators if anybody needs one. They are pretty clean and used rebuilt units, not 15 year old OE ones. Have the plugs and pigtails. $60
