This Ron Morris Performance EFI Fuel System from Mustangs Plus is just what you need to pr
Building a fuel system for a classic car is nothing new, and there is a myriad of choices when it comes to doing so. Whether you have a stock carbureted 289 or a 700hp blown big-block, there are components readily available to support your needs. In looking for a fuel system for a '68 restomod coupe, we surfed Mustang Plus' website and found just the right setup to meet our needs.
Mustangs Plus carries pretty much anything you need for a fuel system, and we set our sights on the Ron Morris Performance EFI Fuel System Kit (PN 13714). This kit fits '65-'68 Mustangs and includes everything you will need (short of tools, water, and a microwave oven) to install it. It also uses a number of factory components, which makes maintenance a bit easier and inexpensive down the road.
With a whopping 205hp and 280 lb-ft of twist coming from the '96 vintage Thunderbird 4.6L V-8 that this restomod we will be using for propulsion, we didn't have a massive requirement for fuel. The EFI powerplant does run at around 40 psi, however, and we intend to bolt on some horsepower-improving parts later; we wanted a system that could support the increased power level as well. The RMP system includes a 155-lph electric fuel pump that should be up to the task.
Mustangs Plus was also able to accommodate our '70 Mustang fuel tank that the car's owner, Rusty Gillis of Gillis Performance Restorations (GPR), had picked up for his coupe. The 20-gallon capacity will provide added cruise range for those longer trips, and Ron Morris Performance simply substituted the longer '70-model pickup and sending unit to complete our kit.
We had GPR's Brian Gillis handle the installation (between all of the company's ongoing projects) so we could snap the pictures and hang out beneath the car on the creeper. As far as modifications go, it's something the average gearhead could do with the ordinary handtools. Check out the captions to see how easy it is to put your EFI engine in a high-pressure situation.
