I run those on my 45s
I may have missed it but what engine management are you using? Staying multi point or going to a TBI sort of setup?
If you remember the unmarked crate from @Tank5 a few pages back...Holley Sniper
I think that's a great idea using a sniper. I've been curious about the difficulty in sourcing one of those manifolds. I've also wondered if u could take the USA lower intake, weld up the injector holes and weld some square tube over the top and mount a sniper on that way.If you remember the unmarked crate from @Tank5 a few pages back...

...it contains the missing link to making this work the way we want. Let’s open it up...

This is the upper half of a non-US carbed 1FZ. I had already done the research and figured I only needed the manifold, but ‘tank was selling this complete package, so I bought it from him several months ago to squirrel away for the right time.
With the FJ Co bellhousing and a Sniper, the 1FZ could be made SUPER simple, and be a perfect swap candidate for earlier trucks.
These motors respond well to steroids, with virtually unlimited potential (check out the Middle East drag & sand racers), so it would make a great all-Toyota motor swap.
Plus, you get a good PS pump, decent output alternator, and an AC compressor, if desired. Everything F’s and (early) 2F’s don’t have.
While we’re going to use pretty much everything in the crate, the gold is the manifold:

With a little adapting, we can plop a Holley Sniper on top and peel out. What it may lose over the multi port injection, it should make up for in modern computing (plus whatever we gain from the fun stuff).
This is the last pic you’ll get. It’s in hiding until there’s a finished product:

Thanks for the bling @Ratboy! Perfect situation so now both 45’s have great steering wheels.
