Re: Questions for fuel injection guru\'s
Well, here's the problem. The 401 is a V8, and the 4.3 is a V6. There is absolutely no way you could get the manifold to work. Also, I'm assuming it's TBI, not TPI or MPFI, and so the throttle body would probably not fit up to the 2- or 4-barrel manifold on the 401. The 4.3 injection is designed to handle probably not much more than 200 hp, and will make your motor run anemically compared to the carb. Also, the thought of fabricating a wiring harness sends shivers up my spine (Did the S-10 have A/C, auto, or any other drivetrain-related items? Odds are they hook up to the harness and you would have to "fool" the computer into thinking they were there and functioning properly). In other words, I wouldn't even waste my time hacking up the S-10. If you're hell-bent on injection, Holley makes a rather nice and user-friendly Pro-Jection system that will work great on your 401. Good luck!
