Buick V8 on Ethanol

Post by Thomjpster » Tue Jul 15, 2008 1:25 pm

Victory is MINE :yeah!:

My '68 Jeepster is megasquirting Ethanol
'67 Buick 340. I used a V6 distributor housing with Chevy V8 guts to use a 7 pin HEI module.
I'm also using the MS&s extra input mod.
Chevy 4.3 v6 throttle body with stock v8 injectors, also using the idle air motor.
Running a Ford external fuel pump out of the junk yard, pushing about 12psi
I built custom long tube headers with o2 bungs, and I'm using a narrow band

So far I'm doing well, getting the same milage squirting e85 as I was carbed on gasoline,
BUT! it's still a shade shy of 10mpg

Probably due to the 33" bias ply tires, 3.73:1 axles and a TH400.
'68 Jeepster it's a big boy's toy

a 67 340? Or a 67 430? Big block or small block? I am working on converting a 69 430 big block to EFI.
