Re: carby to fuel injection 302w
I would strongly recommend at least looking into the wonderful Edelbrock EFI system which bolts straight onto a 289/302. It has all the CPU's, and custom Control boxes, and in-dash adjustment dials etc.
Perhaps best of all however is that it looks like a classic Muscle Car inlet manifold where the traditional carburettor is replaced by a 4 venturi throttle body which allows you place a traditional carby air-filter on top. The Edelbrock people claim that if you use their RPM alloy heads that a 302 will deliver 24mpg AND 400 horsepower. It's a very impressive system at $2,600 USD. I would definitely favour it over the Ford system. Check it out.
