Well I only asked because I see new Holley's for around $60.
You could probably run the Holley if it is boost referenced and is adjustable. You need to run 43.5 lbs. fuel pressure and also reference to boost so it goes up when boost goes up.
The stock German one is at 43.5 lbs by default and has a connection for a hose to the intake runner.

Biggest difference will be the the ability to adjust pressure, as well as having the ability to run any hose you want.

That's one of the best parts of MS EFI.....you can do it whichever way you want. There are many different ways to accomplish the same thing.
You get to pick which one works best for you.
You are the engineer and the mechanic...... 8) :wink:

Why would the regulator need to be boost referenced? Boost shouldn't affect injectors?

Interesting. I wouldn't have thought boost pressure would have affected injectors.

At 43.5 lbs fuel pressure and then pushing back at 22 lbs.....that leaves only 21.5 lbs of fuel pressure left. What do you think that would do for tuning it.
You need a steady pressure. Boost referencing keeps it at a steady 43.5 lbs at all times.

So I'm thinking ahead to wiring. I've heard a couple guys mention the extra time it takes to remove the engine. Suppose it would be worth while to put a weather pack connector at the firewall so you could just unplug the entire engine harness and pull it with the engine?

I did that at one point, then added more wires to the system. In the end I removed that plug. I think I'd need 2 or 3 to do the job in my engine compartment now. I don't like the bulk of the connector. I now have 6 or 7 smaller ones that I unplug with 8 to 10 wires each. That way there is no big harness hanging out in the engine compartment to pinch when stabbing the motor in next time. It all comes out with the engine. I'm going to reconfigure again though. Still trying to find the best method.

I guess maybe I should lay it out on paper and see how many wires I will have and how many I might have if I do any upgrades.

Wait I forgot. I have a fuel pressure regulator coming. Thanks for the find Clone.
