    Just had a thought

    If I'm going to make a pipe from the superchager that splits and goes to the two carbies. What if I just made those bolt directly to the manifold and have injector bosses put on them. Twin point injection and use megasquirt with MAP sensor/TPS to run it?

    Not the best but possibly cheaper than sourcing a full EFI setup from a Range Rover (also would have MAP rather than AFM) and easier than modifying the carbies to handle positive pressure? Also should be easier to tune than the SU's?

    Think my charger came with the throttle body.

    Will a Discovery 3.9 Mani/Injector setup fit a 3.5 using SD1 heads?

    Man that's a sweet setup!

    Somewhat but I'd be looking at a single supercharger and injectors (either 1 or 2 on each side) where those pipes mount to the mani rather than carbs.

    would either use the dizzy with electronic unit I have or go distributor-less and run ignition from mega-squirt.

    Awesome. I'm a professional geek so hopefully shouldn't have too much trouble learning this.

    Cammy. Very cool. Love the car. I am very interested in the motor build considering what I am doing with my Rover V8 (Single Turbo 3.5). I would be interested in seeing how the EFI works as I am going with a Blow thru carb.

    Keep posting up the pictures!

    Thanks
