Re: DUI for 258!!! yes they have em!!

Don't really need a DUI for a 258, an I6 GM HEI works just fine.

You should have asked them how they came up with their pricing for the AMC 360 DUI... the problem being that there are a TON of jeepers who would love to put an HEI into their 360 (including me), but the price is holding them back. If they dropped the price a hundred bucks, they would sell hundreds more [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]

Just my gripe for the day... I'm not meaning to shoot the messenger

What will the DUI for the 258 get me that proper curve tuning of my existing HEI conversion won't? Just trying to find out what is so great about the DUI for the 6 cyl. I only put $100 into converting mine to HEI and I'll bet the DUI is a lot higher, based on what it runs for the 304.

Re: DUI for 258!!! yes they have em!!

so how much is a new DUI for the 258 and how hard is it to install? and what the overall benefit of using it?

Simply too much money for something most of us can get at the local salvage yard. To have an HEI properly curved you would need to take the whole vehicle to a speed shop... just giving them some specs doesnt tell them what kind of condition the engine/timing chain is in.

I applaud DUI for making the AMC V8 setup but coming out with an HEI for the 258 and charging $300+ is absurd.

***** I dont know if in fact that is what they charge for the 258's but considering there is no machining that needs to be done the thing should cost less than $200
