    Well, here`s the question i have been playing with in my tiny brain for quite a while now. We do not have any decent flow-benches lying around, that could measure it in Estonia, so the topic is just hypothetical at this point. Just love the idea of having an MPFI on a 500.

    Lot of issues with the geometry there. It would be easier to design one from scratch.

    Exactly as MIHELA stated, and IMO the best place for those is in the scrap bin, building your own would not only yield better results but also waste less time

    The Northstar engine, the much maligned and always soon to need a head gasket.

    how on earth (or in Estonia) would that fit? Suggest you either buy an 1976 FI Intake and accessories or modify a stock intake for injectors, build your own fuel rails, etc. If nothing else, the system is designed to flow just about 1/2 f what a 500 will.
