    So it's not called "BossEFI" anymore, but "Powerjection 1 System".

    it's been out but i don't know of anyone who has it installed yet, i know there were at least one or two people on the board that had ordered it but that's the last i heard. professional products has an identical version of it now as well.

    I should have been more specific, my post was directed at Valley82. In an earlier post he said he was supposed to get the Boss system either late March or early April.
    I am well aware that the Boss EFI has been out for a while now.

    I have seen one of these (retrotek efi kit) installed onto a 392 Windsor. The car had been tuned by the Dyno Shop in Santee when it had the SpeedDemon 750 carb. After installing the efi, the engine made more power everywhere except at torque peak. Easier startup and smoother idle.

    I would put one on my Maverick except I just gave all my money to the people collecting government checks.

    Maybe later in the year. :shrug:

    Nope, I haven't received it yet, have called several times and keep getting the...almost ready, and the...we will be shipping it out shortly.

    I guess I can't whine too loud as they are not going to charge my card untill it ships, but the suspense is killing me!!!

    Starting to get irritated with Retrotek... if it takes over two months to get a system, how long will it take to get replacement parts?!
    And no I still have not received it...ordered it on 03/05

    Been on the phone with them four times the first call they said end of march or beginning of april, second call was..umm err middle of april, third call was... going to ship in a couple of days, fourth call I was less than nice...should be ready any day - that was a week ago.
    Now they still have not charged my card for the purchase, but if they had just originally said that the polished cast systems will not be ready for quite a while, I would have bit the bullett and went billet...I'm assuming that is the hold up.
    Very frustrated that my car has sat for another two months and haven't been able to drive it!!!

    Don't know, but I would assume so, Mustangs Unlimited now has them in their catalog and the billet style has been out for quite a while.
    I'm gonna call them again tomorrow, I'll find out.

    I found this on ebay and contaced the seller to see if this was in stock, here's his reply:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...10242198380&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:MOTORS:1123

    Looks like Retrok is stocking suppliers before sending out customer orders. When I am ready to buy this summer I'm going this route and will bypass Retrotek completely. This guys price is competetive as well for a billet unit.

    O.k., I talked to them today, It seems that the cast version is the only one not stocked, IF they don't have a polished cast system in by monday, he is willing to discount a machined finish billett version which I can get to my door on tuesday.
    So it looks like I should have a system to oggle over tuesday night.
