Re: EFI on a 302

The only thing that stops me fitting a Sniper system to my Hawk is having to grind the lobe out of the middle of the two segments in the inlet manifold. I know a manifold is only £250.

The manual was pretty good in describing the process for Sidescreen fitting. I also wrote it up in my build write up. I cut a piece of Perspex the same width as the Sidescreen and used that as the template to mark the holes in the door tops. I got my screens trimmed by Monsoon who were ex Polyfacto ...
