Final note, the OBD2 system will be ready to kick off 2021.
They are still shipping the tried and tested chip, which is set for stock configuration. So if your bigger badder etc. You may need a re-chip.
One thing is the OBD2 has o2, which will increase costs ($2-$300).
Also, to reduce brokerage fees, they will not split up a kit. Or you do not get the trouble shooting included. Still a great deal as far as I am concerned.
Most likely I am waiting for the OBD2, chat in spring!

Final final
The OBD1 or 1.5 I suspect and OBD2 are self learning, but there is a junction box which will need to go back to Patton or AFI.
Both have o2. Both self learning. So unsure why one needs to reprogram/chip?

Kit arrived, very impressed. Probably $1,700 to $1,800 in quality parts alone. Then all the machining and tuning.
Very well worth it

Jenvey does a dual injector and adaptor which fits the Stromberg head and the injectors fire directly down each port,

Yes, its the package and support that seems to have got my attention by Patton.
I think once all the bits are accounted for, the Jenvey, controllers etc is about $500-$700 more. Then, the programming. Then again, I couldn’t find any testimonials from Elan owners or any historic posts. The Patton is documented at least 3 times. Not that I am for or against GM, there are many ecm’s here in N America. MegaSquirt/MicroSquirt etc. The Patton has the O2, baro/map and software ready. Also, you can put the tops back on the carbs and it looks original.
