    Wow, that’s quite a collection. Very cool!

    I would love to drop a boosted LS in my maverick, but my dad and brother would disown me!

    Attached are the dimensions on that Holley EFI Windsor intake. With the taller 9.5 deck height on the block I don’t think it would work for me. I’m not sure if the AJE K member drops the motor any or not?

    I hope you move forward with the FI Tech system. I have looked at that package and would be anxious to see what you think.

    desided to just replace the Atomic EFI that I have with a new unit. one of the features on the control modual quit working (still driveable). to replace it and send the compleat system in to be checked out...$550. new compleat unit...$999.95. that way everything will be new.
    Throttle Body, TPS, MAP, IAT, IAC and Power Module.
    Aug. will make 5 yrs. I've had it...:chirp:...:drive:

    I love your car Frank, you have some interesting modifications. Are you pretty happy with the way the components you chose have worked out?

    thank you...
    Love it...I just change things just to be doing something.
    My Atomic has been sweet. truth is when I put the LS engine in w/carb I couldn't get the stock Grabber hood back on...(the need for the hood w/scoop) this sent me on a mission to find something that would be low profile enough for it to fit. the Atomic was as close as I could get, even with it I had 3/8 inch milled off the top of the intake.
    the multi port intake would have worked I just didn't like the big wiring harness that it came with. even the Atomic harness was longer than I liked so I had my friend David cut it down and put the correct connectors back on it. I had him look at the other harness and there was nothing that could be cut out to make it to my liking.
    I am Blessed to have the people that are around me in my car world.
    I asked my Wife once about selling the Mav and getting a different model car to build. She asked me not to because she loves the Maverick/Comet people. so I guess you Guys and Gals are stuck with us...:yup:

    Frank, Effie and Patches
