Hints - Fuel Injection Upgrade
My Jeep was running fine when I decided to do the fuel injection upgrade; I was just looking to do something not to wild to help it maybe get some better fuel mileage. Man was I way off on that assumption. I spent a whole lot more money then I intended to as well as had to wait around for long periods of time due to a lack of understanding of what I had in the vehicle.
When I bought the Jeep, the kid told me that there was a 4bbl manifold on it... he thought, so I went with it. I should have checked to make sure that was true, because it wasn't. I couldn't see under the carburetor plate, but what I saw under there once I was underway with the upgrade made me have to wait until I could rectify the situation.

Bottom line is this. 1) Make sure you know what you have before your order up the kit. 2) When you get the kit, check it out and make sure all the parts are going to work. 3) Check the distributor cap, if you have different connectors from the old one to the new one, you will probably need new spark plug wires. 4) If your intake is a 2 bbl and you are looking for better fuel performance, a 4 bbl might be in your future plans, make sure you plan accordingly for this. 5) If you go with a new intake, you will need gaskets, possible valley pan, a thermostat gasket, and some RTV to do the job right. You might also need some new carburetor studs for the mounting to the intake manifold for the throttle body.

All I am trying to say here is that the $1400 or so you spent on the original kit won't be the last of the money you spend for the upgrade.
