258 EFI

Has anyone had any experience with the Mopar EFI? I am looking into installing it on my 1980 CJ5.

1980 CJ5 pretty much stock

Re: 258 EFI

Don't do it.

After spending $1800 and taking the time to install it, you will then find out it pings, and pings badly.

Then you will want to spend $300 for a 4.0 head, and then take the time to remove and replace the head. And then, it probably will not ping.

Or you could get a used 4.0 for $500 and swap that in. After a total of $1000, you have a 4.0 that runs on 87 octane. And with the extra money you have, you go out and buy a set of 38" SX's.<img src=http://cwm.ragesofsanity.com/s/net/bandit.gif>

CJ-8, 4.0, NP435, D44 x D60, ARB's, 4w Disc, 2"YJ springs, SOA, 1" Body lift, 38.5" TSL SX

CJ-6, Cherokee
