Re: TBI questions - whats it worth, how easy to in
i had started to do one for my 258 before i found the 360. I had all of the pieces together, but got rid of most of them to help pay for the 360 build. tbi will run better than any carb off camber simply due to the design and laws of physics - gravity does not affect injection. plus having the computer control the timing, air/fuel mixture and idle speed makes it a bit easier to deal with in cold weather, etc. not to mention that injection gives you a bit more torque and usually better hp numbers as well.
doing this on the 305 should be cake since all of the parts are made for that engine or one of its brothers. i got all of my parts off of ebay and dont think that i went over $150 for good stuff (i hadn't bought the wiring harness yet though). i opted for an external fuel pump just because they are easier to deal with than the in tank units. you can run an external filter and pump and if you have a problem with them swap em out on the side of the road or trail.
