Still have some wiring to clean up. But this should help simplify things

AC gone
Secondary Air gone
Manifolds Blasted and open
Air holes in heads tapped and plugged with 1/4x20 set screws
New temp carb (until EFI manifold swap)
New MSD dizzy and wires
SCC gone

The plan will be for a new cam, heads, intake, and stand alone TBI. Not sure about headers for now. I would like to see 300 hp, with a usable rpm range. Only time will tell. These upgrades are awaiting funding.

Need to order new front leaf springs. Thinking of Alcans w/ an orbit-eye in the rear.

Few more pics.

Picture of near finished results.

All non essential components removed.
Wiring and hoses cleaned up.

Fried my old MSD box using my battery charger on boost. Couldn't figure out what I did wrong after re-routing a bunch of wiring. Truck just wouldn't fire. I didn't know that the MSD boxes were that sensitive.

Threw a new box in there and it fired right up. I'll see about getting the old one repaired as a spare.

Looking into doing a top end kit with a Fi-Tech TBI. At that time I'll remove all the old brackets on the front of the Engine.

I do see noticeable improvement in throttle response with out all the vacuum crap on the carb and a new distributor.

Man this build was fun to read. Looks awesome! Would love to see those half doors finished and put on.

I'm currently doing a FI-Tech 400 hp install on my 350-powered CJ5. Engine part was easy, getting my neglected fuel lines and tank up to speed is the real pain in the arse. From the reviews I've seen, I expect that I'm going to dig the improved drivability and will likely have to install systems on my other CJ and my Dodge RC.

I just lost my motivation on the half doors. I'll get back to em eventually.
I'm looking to do a front ARB, New shocks and an Atlas 3.8 as soon as possible.

Saw the Fi-Tech on a rig a couple weeks ago. It really looks impressive in person.
