Question Carby or injected???

Hey guys,

I have been thinking(yeah bad i no) has anyone heard of or tried putting a 350 holly on a 3.9L or i was thinking a 465 holly would suit it great.
What would be the dif with a CFI compared??
Dont know much about injected engines,
Love the old faithfull Holly ;-)
Am I a stupid Ass or not....let me know?

Re: Carby or injected???

Not worth the hassels with ripping the injection off, making a manifold, etc. Not to mention emission hassles you would have as well.

Would be better off converting it to MPFI and learning about injected engines in the process.

Re: Carby or injected???

I've seen a mate do it on his EB 5ltr. It was always playing up, and it never ran like it did when it had the factory injection set up. Then he got a defect and had to reinstal the fuel injection gear.

There have been a few people who have done the multipoint conversion:
EA Multipoint Conversion
mpfi
Starting to get parts for MPFI conversion

Yep, bad idea, much better to throw on the MPFI manifold.
