    I made this unit up to throw in the trunk of my 66 in case my MSD goes out on me on the road. I’ve wire it to simply plug in to my ignition harness without the need for tools. The heat sink is an AC Delco part and the module is a cheap GM 4 pin HEI. I’ve also gathered a spare alternator, mag pick up, fuel pump, coil and Holley Quick kit for the carburetor. The goal is to be able to fix anything that doesn’t need a tow truck.

    I finally joined the modern age and converted the 66 over to electronic fuel injection. I went with the Holley Sniper system which is a self tuning system. It included going to a Hall effect distributor and an in tank fuel pump. Installation took a day’s worth of time and I had no issues. I did have to weld a bung in the exhaust for the O2 sensor, re-plumb parts of the fuel system and run dedicated power and ground from my trunk mounted battery. Total parts cost was just under $2,000. I’m pretty happy with the change.

    Bruce, that sounds like a really nice conversion!

    Still probably looks old school too!

    If you get a chance post up some pics, if you would.
