True, I hate that side cover....finally got it to stop leaking. I have heard some people fitting without mods...doubt I'll be that lucky. But I do have the donor side cover, just not wanting to take that bastard off again.
The FI setup I"ll be doing is TBI/megasquirt. It uses the 4.3L tbi setup. I got to drive it before it was taken off. It's not controlling any of the timing, just fuel delivery so that will definitely be simpler. I found out where the advance hooks up and that should be pretty easy.
