Ryan is anything if not thorough, and covers each of these projects in a step-by-step, soup-to-nuts fashion so anyone that can turn a wrench can duplicate the builds.
The videos are worth a watch.
Ryan’s latest project was dragging his 1968 Chevy Camaro into the modern age with a Summit Racing™ MAX-efi 500 fuel injection system. The Camaro has a 468 cubic inch big block Chevy under the hood backed by an FTI Performance Level 3 TH-700R4 transmission. The engine has these upgrades:
0.030 inch overbore, re-machined stock crankshaft, stock connecting rods with SRP dome pistons
Flat tappet camshaft rated at 232°/244° duration @ .050 and 535″/.535″ gross valve lift
Back to the EFI deal. Ryan had hard start and bogging issues with the big block. He even had the carburetor set up by a professional tuner, but to no avail. Rather than tinker with the carburetor any further, Ryan got the MAX-efi 500 system. He used one on his small block Ford build and was thrilled with the performance, so the choice was easy.

How did things work out for Ryan?
Splendidly—no more hard starts, no bogging, and much improved throttle response. His rear end dyno noticed more power, too. If that sounds like a great deal to you, a Summit Racing MAX-efi 500 fuel injection system should be on your vehicle’s to-do list.
