I am going to start calling around to see if junkers may have the parts I need. Now my question is... What years are compatible. Are they all interchangeable? If I have an 89 1.6L engine will any intake manifold that is meant for FI tracker/sidekick fit?
I did the same conversion - I suggest that you use a FI system from an 89-90 Kick / Track b/c you will not have to deal with the VSS conversion - just a bolt on affair.
For a fuel pump I used a NAPA # TFP2P74028 [Electric In-Line Type] and a Mallory 160 Series Fuel Filter (the stock fuel filter is a not a high flow unit and is designed for a carb although a lot of people still use them) - double clamp all lines and if money allows I would suggest that you change all the fuel lines to high pressure FI specific lines. I also recommend that you use a relay to fuel pump to ensure that it gets full power.
Don't forget one of the most important Items...the FSM for the year your using.
As for compatibility (for 8v's), 89-90 can swap components, 91-93 can swap components and 94-95 gets a little fuzzy but seems compatable.
Also, It does not matter if the donor is from an Automatic or Manual transmission.
