Well, if you were running a minitruck, I'd 100% say:

EFI
Manual with dual cases
Eelctric Taurus Fan

With the TLC, I'd go Chevy 350/TH350, though..

still EFI, with a mechanical fan.


I'm swapping my Weber for my EFI setup, and will be pulling the mech fan for a taurus 2 speed unit..

My plans with the cruiser are Turbo350 with an Edelbrock Pro-Flow E.F.I. I'm using a stock Toyota 4 core with a Flex-A-Lite electric right now. Having some over heating problems. I have an aluminum 2 core(1"cores) that I will be putting on along with a non-thermal fan clutch.

I always prefer factory EFI.

Find a nice TBI or better, a Vortec 350.

You already know my choices. My question is when are you going to start these projects and when are you going to take it off road?

You know me. Weather has to be good, with the wind out of the east and of course everything has to color corrdinate. Besides the mall season hasn't started yet. I heard they are raising the height of the speed bumps this year. Glad I got the lift on last year.

You gotta be kidding me.......I guess I really do need to get those 1/2ton axles and 37's mounted under the Jeep. My D30/35 combo will never hold up to larger speed bumps at the mall:tonka:
