Default Howell fuel injection?

Looking for some real world experience with these systems. Installation, durability, dependability and anything else. I'm totally against pro jection systems but may consider others. The application is for a AMC V-8. Thanks

A member of our club (The infamous Mud Shark) ran a howell TBI setup on his AMC 258, seemed to run great all the time, at all angles. The only time I know that he had a real issue was out in colorado, due to his fuel pump placement causing vapor lock.

I never remember him having any motor troubles in years.

If you had bought my 401, you would have had the option to buy a Howell system, also.

Would have loved to buy it! You should have dropped everything you were doing and posted up sooner.

I got impatient because I needed to get the engine deal resolved. Got a trip coming up and I'm not missing it.

Thanks for the input guys. Howell system it is.
