people that run pro-jection either love it or hate it. Once you get it dialed in, it's great. It takes some time and patience to get it running right, though. I've finally got mine tuned to where I don't touch the dials anymore. In the end, you have to realize that you're basically running an electric carb though. It's never going to run like a multi-point system. It's going to run like a carb that doesn't stall when you get off camber. For the price, it's a good deal though..

well its going on a ford inline six that I use for offroading I have put the efi exhaust manifolds on it, I switched the rocker arms to ones for a chevy 250 for more lift and with the np435-208 even with the 308 gears I am more than happy with it offroad(but I have 410's in the solid front and 9 that is going in in the spring) so really it is just the off camber and steep incline stalling that I was hoping to fix, well and a wee bit more grunt I figure from the intake and 2 bbl

well - the projection will do all of that. All I'm saying is be patient when you're tuning. It'll take a few times to get it right. I know Howell offers a really good kit - you may want to take a look at it...

I hated mine and never could get it to run right. Too much fuel at low RPM's, too little fuel at higher RPM's. I tried using a $300 AEM adjustable fuel pressure regulator after it was obvious that I couldn't adjust the fuel problems with the computer. It got better but people still told me that my Jeep was richer than Donald Trump.
My favorite thing about the Pro (re-?) jection system was I never had to spray for bugs when wheeling.

Just my experience. I've heard good and bad. I hope it works for you.

cold starts, you'll have to get used to that. once it gets warmed up it runs like butta. tuning can be a pain because of the different engines it fits. just be patient and look for threads on here. i have one under my name actually. my runs really good but needs minor tweaking. i think it's good for the money. just make sure to get the closed loop kit.

Love mine on a 302 in my Early Bronco.
As said above it doesen't run like multi-point but is also alot simpler.
