Ok so I am here for a couple of good reasons one I feel I can share some good info and answer some questions. At the very least shine some light on some questions I had and can answer now due to countless hours of research and a good support system.
Let's start with my base which is what the original engine, chassis, trans, and rear end as all these things are a combo and should work together.

274/274 advertised 246/246 at .050 with .535/.535 lift on a 108 lsa
mid tube ceramic headers 2.5 dual h-pipe was a flowmaster stainless now has borla 19" xs mufflers
Ignition is MSD 6A box to a pro billet MSD vacuum advance distributor

an bunch of upgrades to make it handle power if you really wanna know ask

10 Bolt 8.5" 2.56 gears right now that is next on the chopping block for this 1972 Chevelle GM A-Body
So this Engine about a year and a half ago overheated due to a melted electric fan fuse it then lost enough coolant to where I did not realize it heat seized the engine and ate the bearings strait out of it no pics of the carnage yet it sits in the car still assembled while I build my new engine.
Well at the time I was in the middle of my current build you know how it goes always building it up. So I had been on the fence ready to jump into an efi setup had just done the cam change. So I was constantly crunching numbers trying to figure out what would be the cheapest way at the same time watching eBay for stand alones and thinking about the mega squirt. You know just trying to figure out how I was gonna make it happen as $2500 to $3000 was just out of the question even had won a fast throttle body EZ efi on eBay but family responsibilities had me have to sell it. But I ended up winning the auction on a pantera EFI 882c and for real cheap lets just say I stole this ECU at the price I got it for. So now I had this ECU a couple of discs no wiring harness I had no real clue what I even had bought at that point so I went about finding out what I got so I hunted down all the info I could on this ECU finding out it could do sequencial and run coil per cylinder. There opened the can of worms. I sent Lance from Pantera EFI an email told him I got his ECU off eBay and appreciate any help he could provide for me supplied the numbers off the unit and he let me know what I had. At the time the engine was running and I was thinking going the turbo route at the time not very thought through. But I had an ECU it was installed with a 2.5bar MAP for Turbo so though I would start with the fuel system. I talked to Lance and he supplied me with a fuel pump I had started buying other parts on the net as a fuel system is great place to start need to be able to provide ample pressure for efi and it can be installed while I cruise my current setup. I bought an AEM wideband cause it also has a controller built in that would work with the ecu to provide a true wideband for the ECU. So I got 2 15' lengths of 8AN aeromotive socketless and a bunch of AN fitting drew up a diagram to figure it out even bought some bulkheads. I got an aeromotive fuel regulator that came with 2 springs one for carb pressures the other for efi pressures. So by this time I had talked with Lance a couple times on the phone. I really enjoy talking to him he is always shining some light on one of my questions. Plus believe me I do my homework that included on him seeing he developed the ECU. To say the least google Lance Nist and read some of his articles out there. Well I told him I would give him my business on every thing I could within reason I mean if I could find it cheaper I would and he has always taken care of me beating allot of prices I have found online. But I started by buying one of his Fuel Filters and a fuel Filter from him.
The Car and Engine currently really hurt

The Billet Fuel Pump I got from him also came with mounting hardware and wiring
More to come tomorrow
