Ya, you could carb it for now to get all of the other components matched up and working together, then tackle EFI when everything is dialed in.

Justin,  Can you put me in contact with your carb buddy with the flat fender? Would like to visit with him to compare notes on modifying the Autolite 2100 vs a 390 Holley

Hey John.  Setting up a MC2100 (or 2150) is not that hard.  That is what I run in my CJ.  Basically just lower the float so it doesn't flood easily.  Here is a link to a good write up.  http://www.fourwheeler.com/how-to/engine/1308-off-your-carburetor-dirt-tuning-the-motorcraft-2100/   If you are putting it on the Dauntless, do not get the TRD 3086 adapter, they suck.
There is a guy on EBay that mills one out of billet that seals a lot better.  If you need some help with it, let me know.

Sounds great, but I am running a Holley 390 4 bbl.  Need to determine if any of these mods can be applied to a Holley.

From talking with Brennan i think modifying the holley's is significantly more difficult.

I finally picked up an engine and you can pretty much ignore my previous post about the Ford 302 or 3800.  Found a guy in Altoona selling a pulled and running 305 SBC V8 for a hundred bucks and really couldn't turn that price down.  It's just a bare long block with intake and no other accessories but at least I can start setting the drivetrain now.  This will allow me to snag a short water pump and save 2" in overall length off the engine, so it works out for the best.  After doing some research I'm going to love having a small block Chevy.  I priced out a full gasket set for the 305 and it only costs $100, that's insanely cheap lol.

I've decided the nickname for this will be Project Scavenger since I've effectively got three manufacturers parts going into the drivetrain.

SBC V8 > 168 tooth 464697 Chevy Bellhousing > Ford T18 > Advance Adapters TC adapter > Jeep Dana20 transfer case

I also got the tub halfway thrown together and set on the 1978 CJ5 frame, it's going to work great.  I got all of my measurements taken for the rear frame section that I cut off due to rot so now I can build that out and maybe actually get this thing set down on its own weight.  There are only two pain points with the Tub and Frame right now, the front shock mounts interfere with the fenders and there is a rear crossmember I'm going to have to trim.  Other than that though the tub sits down on the frame nice and level.

Glad I bought an engine hoist to move this thing around on my own!

Lol.  I've been making progress on this but it requires me to weld so I've been teaching myself to do that.  Its going ok.
