hyghspeedpony302 12.02.2013, 12:25
nope not all

Probably depends on what you are trying to do.

Expect less gas mileage with carb. I don't know if that is a consideration for you.

Some whine that you can't use carb for a daily driver. They are wrong.

yes this much i know, i want more power, dont drive it enough to cry about gas. but still want a street car, not a 1/4 car..

ive been going through the same delima, it seems like the only injection cars that run good are force feed ( turbo, supercharger, etc ) thats just what ive seen anyone
foxman92 12.02.2013, 12:48
my car runs good, but i feel it should run better for what ive got in it.. like i said i probably needs tuned, but idk.. its something simple keeping it from being all balls, not half ass..

what is done do it. if you have the stuff to switch it over just do it and you can always change it back. i will never change mine to carb just because i like that people that that it is

ive got tfs 1 cam, TF intake, fuel press.. reg. 75mm mass air, 70mm throttle body, CAI, full exhaust, and little stuff.. i think my distributor, is most of the problem.. nfs
stangfather 12.02.2013, 13:43
are you wanting just more power or what?

i personally will trade a few HP for a car that runs and starts when i want it to..

unless its a track whore i wouldn't, as much as i do enjoy a carb sometimes, i love me some EFI

More power just go with a set of heads?
stangfather 12.02.2013, 13:52
yeah get the rest of your engine parts you need and then rethink it..your not going to see much with a carb swap right now

Not worth. It your car isn't going to magically run 11s just because you switch induction systems. You're limited by your heads. However, a couple hundred spent on a tune could net you improved driveability as well as some more power. There's likely nothing wrong with your distributor.

ive got a lil ignition problem? not sure exactly what it is, but ive replaced every thing except the distributor, like around 2******0 my car is missing, it sounds just like the traction control on the newer cars.. like somethings cutting out half the spark??? help??
