    Yeah you'd think that Edelbrock parts should fit together, but no..Also had to grind my E-street heads on my 440..Bolt on, dream on they say

    I had also to grind both my Edelbrock Victor 440 heads and the ProFlo4 intake manifold corner to fit the distributor included in the kit into my Charger with stock Mopar 440 RB engine block. Not so bolt on assembly as expected with all Edelbrock stuff.

    They are the Sidewinder heads from Marsh Performance. (Chinese casting) I have seen other people running these heads that had to clearance them to fit the distributor

    I had to "machine" down my right head to clear the edelbrock distributor. This was when I started, and I forgot to take an after picture. Had to take roughly .25" off at the deepest spot. The Edelbrock distributor is shorter and a lot fatter than the Firecore distributor I was running

    Thanks, I will call them and get one. Yes I was previously running Firecore distributor,wires, and coil. I did know that I was going to have to swap coils.

    800-416-8628 Tell em you need one sent out.

    Also that Blaster SS coil on your pass Fender, will damage the ECU.

    Check the instructions for an approved coil.

    Nate S., the temp sensor was missing from my kit. Do I need to call in to get one or how is the best way to handle that? Thanks.

    I forgot to post the "before" picture. Even with a deep drop down air cleaner, it was still rubbing my hood. I think it may have been limiting airflow at higher RPMs.

    The A/C compressor will have to be relocated to a different location . Bouchillon offer brackets to mount it down close to where the factory fuel pump is. Still looking at other options as well.

    I bought the new stainless valley cover from Hughes Engines. Should be reusable after removal.

    XT install on Mopar 440 in a 69 Charger

    I am finally starting the install of my Pro Flo 4 XT on my Charger. I previously was running FiTech and didn't have any problems with it, I just wanted to upgrade to multi port EFI, gain some hood clearance, and possibly put a supercharger on it. I will document my install here for any other Mopar guys interested
