Nice Q you got there Long283. I could imagine how well a V8 will run with a well set up EFI system. Mates who have driven my FB are amazed at the smooth power I'm getting from a humble 186. I just came in from the shed after finishing off my cold air intake system. I ditched the open pod and fitted an enclosed pod and plumbed the intake over the radiator support bracket via a flattened nozzle (like a vacuum cleaner head) from an old Volvo. Makes a hell of a difference now the IAT barely reached 30 degrees just running in the shed with motor at normal temp and thermo running. Before this, I was logging an IAT up to 70 degrees. And that was on a mild (25 deg.) day. The only thing I've lost is the induction whistle I got from the open pod.

Thirty degrees IAT is great! I get around 65-70 with the factory EEC4 (XE-XF) airbox : it's crap.
1984 Ford Falcon 250ci inline 6 MS'd of course!
Now improved the way Ford should have built it with a 4speed automatic.
Also with 3.45 LSD for added goodness.
