Some sort of FI, how to go about it...

I have been very bussy looking at all the information about the Howell and Mopar FI kits. Both seem to be priced VERY high. As of now i am not in a big hurry, but i am looking for a 4.0 head to do the conversion. When that time comes i want to be prepared to takle the intake.

On the other hand i am tempted to buy a 4.0 Wrangler that has been trashed and take the Fi and head off of it then sell any good parts off of the other Wrangler. This is my first case.

Second case. Get a 4.0 Wrangler. Do a 4.0 swap and lose my 4.2's awsome torque. OR Take the head and FI off and put it on my YJ and stick the old 4.2 head on the 4.0 block with an MC2100 on it. IS that possible? Then re-sell the 4.0/4.2 head wranger for a small chuck of change.

What do you guys think? OR should i just purchase all the above supplies new?

I think for cost, getting a used factory FI would be the least expensive option. The aftermarket FI systems are likely to be easier to get up and running. Figuring out a used factory FI system is not hard, just takes time.

Re: Some sort of FI, how to go about it...

Here's another one for you to look at. This guy sets up kits individually and he's quite a bit cheaper than any of the others. Some of his parts are reconditioned, but his guarantee is good. I know of a couple of people who have used his system and are very happy with the results and his knowledge. I'll be using him to inject a 401 I just bought along with a '76 Cherokee! <a target="_blank" href=http://www.customefis.com>www.customefis.com</a>

There is also now the MegaSquirt FI. This is a really cheap option. It seems the easiest way to go about it is to get 4.0 intakes and use MS to control the throttle body.

Re: Some sort of FI, how to go about it...

OK, I looked at the wbs site and it looks like it's only a Built-it-yourself set up. Are you using one of these.. I have a Pro-jection system on my shielf and I think this would be a great buy to make it work. But I'm not into soddering this thing my self.

I sure would like more info if you have it.

Thanks

Wally, I have done quite a bit of research on this, but haven't bought one yet. Check out the Yahoo! group at <a target="_blank" href=http://groups.yahoo.com/group/megasquirt/>http://groups.yahoo.com/group/megasquirt/</a>

I like the GM TBI set up. The mega Squirt Seems like it would not be as well of a preformer and un reliable. Those are both cool site to stufy on. Thanks. I think i will try GM TBI or a facotry set up.
