      With some work, you could make that 200-4R work with the Caddy 500. If
      you're planning to go EFI, a GM TBI would be the easiest way and you could
      also control the lock-up convertor in the 200-4R with the ECM. Much better
      system than the Holley. A 454 TBI should handle the big Cad.
