amc v8 fuel injection on POR

I just saw a MPI fuel injection system for a 4 barrel amc v8 that someone is selling on the Pirates of the Rubicon for sale board.

Re: amc v8 fuel injection on POR

Thats pretty funny. There is nothing Multi-Port about it. Thats a plain old Throttle-body system. If they were going to run MPI they'd have to drill the cylinder heads for every cylinder and install an injector there (actually they would have to have new heads made). It would be so much work that it wouldn't be worth the performance gain.

Re: amc v8 fuel injection on POR

Multi-port could be achieved by adding the injectors at the end of the intake runners on the intake manifold. That's how the Jeep system is done. No need to mess with the heads.

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]Why, thats right. I didn't even think about that[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] It does say that it uses the 4-barrell intake manifold though, and I don't suppose that would be re-used would it?[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]
