Re: POLL: Fuel Injection, Howell, Holley, Mopar, etc?
Please don't be among the very unhappy Mopar FI kit owners. I can't tell you how many guys I have run in to that are very unhappy with with it. I have a friend with $5000 into a kit, rebuilt 258 and install. And it pings. It pings for everybody. The only cure is the 4.0 head. So my friend now has to void his warranty on his new rebuild, and put a 4.0 head on.
I'm with Larry. I swapped a 4.0 out of an '89 cherokee into my Scrambler. The earlier 4.0 produce the torque at lower rpm's than the later version. (2400 vs 4200) I've got less that $1000 into it. Just think what my friend could have had for $5000 if he knew what he was getting into.
I have also seen on this or some other BBS, someone trying to get together a lawsuit against Mopar for this kit.
