Rock Crawling Machine Needs Fuel Injection
I went 4-wheeling last weekend in one of the most extreme boulder fields I have ever seen (which may not be saying much). Along the way I was passing jeeps, Chevys, and Toys. They all had 35" tires or larger. They each had a unique problem. With my little 33" tires, freshly swapped 3.50 gears and open differentials, I was able to crawl past the bunch and make it up the trail with only a few scratches on the bottom-side of my front differential. It impressed everyone how easily the old Bronco moved (also thanks to a good spotter) The only complaint I have is the carb would start to bog out when the incline got too great, but only stalled it once. One other vehicle had a severe problem with stalling, and another had a blown-out Holly (carb backfire caused it to self-destruct). With this in mind, I have made plans to buy a fuel injection kit. I have heard very little about after-market kits. What kit would be the least expensive and still give me the advantage of not having a float bowl? The concern is also the dual tanks. I think I need a 5-way switch to cycle the fuel to the engine, and back to the proper tank. I don't have a fortune to dump into this, which limits me to throttle-body injection rather than a multi-port setup. If anyone can lend some advice or has any feed-back, it would be much appreciated.
