FI conversion

I would like to convert my 86 Sammy with 1.6L engine to FI. I currently have the 1.3 carburated intake manifold on it. Now to do the conversion what would I need. From a 1.6 FI engine I would need

1) Complete intake manifold
2) Wiring harness
3) Computer
4) external fuel pump (not sure of PSI)

From what I have read to date this is the list. Is there something else that I am missing? Anything else I need?

Thanks

Re: FI conversion

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?

Thanks

Re: FI conversion

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.

Re: FI conversion

I don't suppose anyone could tell me where I could find a step by step on doing this conversion.

Thanks

Re: FI conversion

I think you'll also need the efi distributor, the map sensor located on the firewall, and for some year models, the vehicle speed sensor.

Re: FI conversion

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.
