Was stumped on the induction but after runnin thru the engine bin (Pail) i found a cool Injection set up from a ford pickup Monogram F350. Modifyed it alittle to get it to work..........

Thats cool. Where did the Slant-6 Power Pack and blower set up come from? I need to get me one of those for a Duster project that I have had going on forever.

The slant six came from the Deroa Kit and the blower was scratch built out of Alum tubing and the intake from a 1999 SVT Ford lightining pickup
the injector/TBI came from a monogram 1992?? F350 daully kit (F250 is the same engine as well).......
Just a matter of trying to blend it all togather when you gather enough pieces......

Thanks!

Here's a really wacky thought that I wish I could have shared before you painted the body...

Given the creative engine treatment, a subtle clue of what lay underneath would have been to remove the one power bulge on the driver side, since the air intake is more to the passenger side. One side flat, one side as original. It'd get stares, for sure!

By the way, I love what you did with the engine!!
