TPI conversion in 65

Here is final pic of my TPI in my 65. I plan on polishing plenum and runners next year-this year was just about install and making it work. EMC is under seat, added a surge tank to solve the sloshing gas and pickup problem. WE also used two fuel pumps, one pick-up pump to feed surge tank and a high pressure out of surge tank. Lastly, I bought several new fuel sending units for 65 and modified it by welding return tube to it for return fuel back to tank (and air).

Paint on plenum and runners is rattle can and red wire loom is two-fold; one run is mechanical oil pressure tube that feeds old-school gauge from back of block, other is switched power to coil (also feeds fuel pumps) and temperature sensor for old school gauge. Both are hacks until I can get some time to improve.

Re: TPI conversion in 65

I did the same in my 64. got it in paint and body now. How were you able to get the ECU under the seat. Which trans are you using? I installed the ZF- 6 speed which came with the engine. Had to install buckets due to the location of the shifter.

Looks great. They are fun to drive, I know everyone is doing LS, but TPI is still a good torquey unit. More pics of yours.
