Re: efi to carb whats involved

1) Ring a machine shop

2) Depends on what carby or EFI setup, but an EFi setup will make more power through the whole rev range, use less fuel, run smoother, and pollute less

3) ECU, injectors, fuel rails, manifold, T/B, various sensors, probably more.

It's illegal to put a carby motor into an EF, BTW....

Re: efi to carb whats involved

To convert carb to efi. Different inlet, throttle body, maf,Injectors and rail with presure reg. Fuel lines to take extra pressure and efi fuel pump and return line back to tank.A efi distributor or a locked mechanical advance one.Wire harness and ecu/ eec..Then all the sensers like tps,iac,intake temp etc etc..

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
