The new efi set up for the car,
The attempt was to upgrade a later style single plenum hotwire manifold with the trumpets and plenum chamber from a limited edition flapper twin plenum efi system,
The end result fingers crossed should be a twin plenum hotwire manifold with a fully mappable ecu,

Bare manifold with no hoses.
The vacuum hoses started to be plumbed in for the ecu.
