    So this 460 i picked up is an early Fuel injected model....

    it will start and run, but only if i hold it to the boards... lots of black smoke like its loading up...

    i figure some fresh gas... new plugs and wires..i would do this regardless.. thinking its a bad map sensor.....but i wonder if anyone else has a clue on these early FIs...

    if its not deisel or a carb... i'm usually just throwing parts at it....
