Factory EFI ignition

Post  paperman on January 25th 2016, 9:30 pm

Pulling stock set-up out of a 95 f350 and installing a A429 headed stock stroke carbureted mill in its place. I need to keep the E4OD in place in as I need all the length I can get for driveshaft angles, as well as they are already made and expensive big joint items. I plan to swap over all the sensors needed but am at a roadblock with the dizzy. Looks as if it feeds the ECM RPM and used for shift strategy. Also while reading about the set-up it looks as if the ECM controls the advance and other ignition based items. How do you pro guys work around this with an EFI build using an auto?

Should I just tap into the output of the dizzy and run a MSD system? Factory EFI distributor doesn't have a provision for any advance, mechanical or vacuum as the ECM takes care of it. If I have to Ill dump the entire factory system and do a standalone trans controller but they are not real cheap if the factory stuff can be made to cooperate. Thank you gents.

The long tail housing C6 is still shorter than the E4OD is currently. Could go with a divorced 205 but want to work around it if I can.

Is the truck mass air?  What intake are you going with?

might be less of a headache to go with the standalone deal for the trans. My dad has the MSD one on his 302/AODE deal in his 67 Cougar. Works real well...

Was speed density. Only some Cali. models were mass air. Its a full carb deal, 10.5:1, .600ish cam, Victor and an 870 Holley. Maddog fenderwell headers, 5.13 locked diffs and big rubber.

I think this would be best also, and would save a lot of aggravation.

The trans controller would be your less headache option here....
