    Cool Electronic Fuel Injection System

    I am repowering a bunch of old trolleys these trolleys usually operate in Waikiki and town stop and go traffic. We are looking at improving fuel mileage and torque. Most units have a 460 Ford gas fuel injection system which is obsolete they are about 20 yrs. old. Basically, I'm looking for a standalone fuel injection system with manifold that works well at idle to 4,000. We have 2 different size engines 429 and 460 gas Fords. I am also concerned about the 40' run from the fuel tank to the engine compartment. Will I need a extra suction pump for the pressure pump? We have a total of about 20 units that were looking to refurbish and time as usual is a concern. Please let me know if you can be of any assistance.
    Aloha from Hawaii, Keith

    Hey Kdautotech, I have done some research. I found a quite good site where you can learn like everything about fuel injection.
    They also have some reviews of fuel injection systems, check it out and see if you can find any system there that fulfill your criteria!

    Currently, Holley doesn't offer a MPFI system (intake manifold) for a Ford 460 engine.
    Although HP EFI ECU & Harness Kits are available to retain your OEM fuel injection hardware.
    Depending on the throttle body bolt pattern, a TBI system would suit your needs too.

    I am also concerned about the 40' run from the fuel tank to the engine compartment. Will I need a extra suction pump for the pressure pump?
    If these engines are MPFI, I wouldn't be too concerned about the 40' run.
    Especially if the 43 psi fuel pressure regulator is located at the engine.
    Do these antiquated EFI engines currently have "booster pumps"?
