Alcohol Mechanical Injection??

OK, currently I run the motosport Victor/Pro Systems carbed combo. I recently came across a Weiand tunnel ram that had a top on it for an enderle hat and was drilled and tapped for the rubber lines in the intake runners.
Could this swap work? What all is involved? I am running TFS streets with Cometic head gaskets, 12.8-1 CR, is this enough for alcohol?
Just the winter setting in and my mind starts to wander about stuff I'd like to do with the bronco is all.

Big Broncos for life!

12.8 is enough for Alky and yes I have run it and like it but I have never had very good luck with the Hat deal, I like the Toilet or carb as good, I want to build a stack injector setup one day and I think it will work great....

enderle hat

12.8 is more than enough! I know it isnt' optimal but it will work fine. Dont laugh but I put mine on a stock rotating assy '78 shortblock (460) with only about 9.6 cr and the response is awsome compared to my old set up.The torque ain't too bad either . The odd and end stuff will kill ya if buying all parts separate - cables, shutoff, pump & drive, tons of an fittings for return lines, etc. Also, if it's an unknown set up get your pump flowed so you can use it for a tuning baseline and make sure you have the right spool in your barrell valve for your application. A great fuel inj. website is over at HRE forums
