Can someone who has one tell me about the MSD Atomic EFI Throttle Body Systems 2900.
1. How hard is it to hook up on 350 chevy?
2. Do I need to get a gas tank with a pump inside?
3. Any information about what I need to buy would be great. Thank you. Steve

It comes with a fuel pump. Link to EFI kit. .... Watch the video. You will need a bung in the exhaust collector for the O2 sensor.

You might get more responses in the "EFI/Fuel Injection" section.

I've been running fuel injection in my 71 c 10 since early 90's. Although I ran a TPI unit I wouldn't do a EFI system without a tank pump unless you go with the new pump and tank under the hood. Like in the picture. But be warned they are expensive. Moding a tank sendor to use is much easier in my opinion.

Hello;
From what I know, using the above pictured Fuel Command Center (in theory) is easier because you use your existing mechanical fuel pump to feed that command center and that makes the pressure necessary to feed a throttle body!
FI Tech is one of the game players making FI more affordable and easier to install!!

The biggest thing I see about using this is if you have a wreck you have a good chance of fuel being all over the engine.
I have modded several C10 sendors for guys to run EFI in their trucks with no problems.

Hello;
Well, from what I see the command center can be mounted anywhere there is 12V to operate it! You just have to run longer fuel lines to and from.
I had a plan to install this in my 32 Hot Rod but absolutely no room in the engine compartment!!! So because I moved my battery to the rear of my car that left a stainless insulated battery box under the passengers seat under the car! I didn't take any measurements yet!!
but Im thinking it will fit quite nicely there!!!

I have been running EFI in the 57 for years. I used an external pump mounted on the rear frame and a return line back into the filler pipe. Never any issues with fuel starvation. Check out some pic's on the fuel and air tab on my picturetrail site from link below. good day

I have been running a factory s.f.i. system with an external pump, return line to the fill pipe, also retained the carbon canister, for years with no problems.
