Just had the FI Tech fuel injection system installed on my 63 Caddy and man what a difference, car is so responsive, no fumes, starts right up, feels like the car gained 50 horsepower. Highly recommend it!

Pictures and install details please.

I had a local shop do the install and I just posted a video in the video section

Which kit did you put on your 63 and which fuel pump did you go with?

I went with the entry level kit I believe it's up to 400 horsepower with the fuel command system

I just watched the video and that is one beautiful car! I'm really digging the valve covers and it's really cool to see someone have success with the FI. Super clean engine!

Thanks Chris

Yes, that just looks so cool. Maybe someday I'll be the cool kid on the block.

Russ anybody with 63-64 caddy is cool
Looks like the carb and intake manifold were changed
What is the canister with the two gauges do ?

Enjoy
Tony the carb is the actual throttle body from FI Tech, it's the original manifold with a spacer, the canister is the fuel command center (which I hope I'm describing correctly) which is fed from gas tank to the command center then pressurized and feeds the throttle body.

That fuel canister is the latest thing to hit the efi world.  You get to keep your existing fuel tank and fuel pump. The existing fuel pump pumps fuel to the canister. The canister contains a high pressure fuel pump and baffles, so your engine doesn't starve under hard braking/cornering.

Searched for FI Tech fuel injection system and this is what I found. Is that the Company you used? Which model did you buy? And what else was necessary? You used a Company to install, but do you think a "normal car guy" would pull it through? Is it just bolt on or does it require a lot of tinkering?-

I'm very curious into this and even though your video is great it doesn't show much from the installation and parts used. Up close pictures with install details would be awesome.

any ideas how to clear the ugly black stuff shooting out from my tailpipe? After a long layover, it really messes up the garage floor. I assume its carbon but am not sure how best to react to it.…Continue

Posted by maurice lapoiinte on November 24, 2019 at 3:10pm 0 Comments

 So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…

Another advantage of the Pertronix III

Posted by Doug Scarrow on November 23, 2019 at 11:12am 1 Comment

   Having tried both the II and III I can say the multispark feature of the III offers a smoother idle . It is also easier to install .Does not require removal of the distributor

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
