EA Carby ?

Hey, im new to the forums so sorry if im not posting this in the appropriate forum. But ive just bought a 88' Ea Falcon GL, and the engine has a carby, i always assumed that all fords from ea were fuel injected. Is it simple enough to convert from carby to fuel injection. Im guessing the computer etc would need a professional to fully install.

Yup as INJECTED250 said it's CFI, you can convert to MPI for around 300-400 if you do the work yourself so you don't really need a pro to do it. There is an article on how to do it on the fordtech thing the forum has.

EDIT: www.Ford-Tech.com that's the site.

Re: EA Carby ?

Center point injection? never heard of it. I assume from ur response that its not good. And 3 - 400 is not too bad, im pretty capable of doing the work myself with help from my dad. Thanks guys for ur help

Re: EA Carby ?

CFI stands for central fuel injection.
It is actually not a bad system as it has some of the advantages that MPEFI (multi point electronic fuel injection) has, such as easy starting, smooth idle, etc, etc. However because of it only having 2 injectors located above the throttle plate, instead of individual injectors located at the inlet port, performance suffers higher in the rev range. The TB is also quite small in comparison to the MP TB.

At low to middling revs it can actually work ok as the engines AF requirements aren't so high.

As they have said above, it is a straightforward conversion, and all the parts are readily available from wreckers.

You likely have other problems such as the thermostat may be stuck open.
