    I'd be OK if he didn't ever get old.

    The EFI has been a headache. It would run flawlessly on one trip and then like absolute garbage the very next. Unfortunately there aren't many shops around here that do this kind of conversion, and figuring out how to tune it with the controller and talking with the service techs from FITech while working on it is a time consuming venture at best.

    It's been a frustrating experience, but in the end I think it will be worth it. Just got to get the bugs worked out.

    Jeremiah, I don't know how deep the redo went before the EFI was installed, but remember: ground integrity is just as important as power on EFI. And it's something you can do yourself. If you go to Paladin's thread on his wagon's voltmeter, I detailed how to check the base electricals to verify power and ground are good, or what to do to determine if one or the other is bad.

    Thanks Andrew. We'll be double checking all of that in the coming days. I'll definitely let you know how it turns out.
