i like it....one suggestion.Why not convert it back to efi but have the holley style 4bbl throttle body and you can still have it out of the bonnet.I used to own a VN ex cop car with a 5L i ran a single plane highrise manifold with a Twin throttle body hat and had my 2 throttle bodies with the air cleaners out of the bonnet.Had no trouble with the boys in the blue..just a thought.

Its auto with a stall, not LPG and any future engine mods arent going to happen until the next tax return!! Its just going to be small things and it really needs a tune.

As for the cops, havent had any issues yet (touch wood) but it doesnt get driven into town which probably helps! Lol

Just becareful,the EPA dont catch up with you.Its a big fine running a carby style setup in that model of falcon.They will get onto the RTA and go right over the car.

Yeah,but to be legal and full street driven you need to comply with the road laws.Its a big fine to run a car after 1985/86 without a catalytic convertor if it came out factory with one.Now like this EB if it were registered and has had the EFI disconnected and a carby conversion done.You get pulled up by the RTA inspectors or even the EPA,say goodbye to your car.Its a $10,000 fine for running a vehicle without the emissions fitted and operating properly.Good example is running no catalytic converter on cars which had them factory fitted.Also by law in new south wales you are not allowed to have anything protruding out of the bonnet.

No dramas. I'll be able to get everything engineered once I put a shaker on and a full set of pipes.
