Subject: FTE 80-96 - Pro*jection info wanted

I've got an RV on a 83 Ford E-350, 460 with a Holley/Autolite 4bbl carb.
I've struggled with vapor lock, poor power, terrible (way worse than the 460
average of "just plain bad") mileage, etc.
I've re-routed the fuel lines off the block/water pump area to outside the
a/c compressor and then into the base of the carb. So far, 1 successful 1
- -hour trip with no vapor lock, but most of the time it takes a couple of
hours to act up.
One speed shop recommended a birchwood heat spacer under the carb - haven't
tried that yet. I'm interested in hearing from anyone who's installed the
Pro*jection system, installation gotchas, performance results, etc.
Thanks.

I installed a Holley ProJection system on an 440 Dodge in an FMC. It was a
500 CFM 2 barrel throttle body that bolted on in place of the original 4
barrel. We had the older style of ProJection (no feedback) so we need to
fiddle with it quite often. The Holley system was actually far cheaper than
a replacement carb. and vastly easier to adjust (sitting on the back bed
while someone else does the driving). Gas milage was never great with the
carb.(7 to 8) but we got it up to double digits (Imperial Gallons) at least
with the ProJection. Installing the plumbing, fuel pump and fitler were
probably the trickiest. The wiring is pretty straight forward, all the
wires are well marked. We still suffer from icing as this motorhome never
had heated intake air an this is throttle body injection. Fuel pressure is
around 20 PSI, and the pump circulates fuel, so vapour lock is never a
problem.

We installed the injection system along with a rebuild. Performance was
greatly improved.
We swaped the intake and cam to better match highway cruising RPM (3000)
while we were at it.

I am seeking info on rich and lean mixture control, if any, with this f.i.
system. All of a sudden my power has dropped and my fuel mileage has gotten
about 25% better. I'm not complaining about the mileage, but I sure do miss
the power. I checked the plugs (new 6000 miles ago) and they appear to be
like they just came out of the box-- no discoloration what-so-ever. Pure
white porcelain, no carbon, nadda!! I'm getting some intermittent "pinging"
which could be a lean condition (good mileage - no power). Haven't looked at
codes or spent any time at Ford shop......yet. Don't really want to. Any
suggestions? I'm a good listener. Waiting.
