intake maifold
carby
fuel pump / fuel regulator
distributor with correct gear for hyd roller cam
you need to retain the ECT sensor for the temp gauge in the dash to operate and also the fans
if its auto then you also need to fit a tps to the carb and also feed the ecu a tach signal from the ignition

in reality, better off sticking to EFI the carb is not going to make it go any better
Better off putting a decent cam and aftermarket ECU in it.

My closest J3 chip tuner is a 3 hour drive away yes i have it done and set up but i wish not to spend $1000 every time i modify my engine. Plus i love the simplicity of a carby and the general way they operate.

I have manual gearbox
I have upgraded engine conponents

I just want to be differant and i can see similar power figures out of a decent carby

Love how you want to go with something different not many people do that most want what everyone else has. I love the idea of a carby as I also love the simplicity of them and I know more about carbs then I do efi.

Hi,
Did you complete the carb set up?
I am looking at a tunnel ram set up on my 347 EB XR8, thinking carbies instead of custom injector setup.
How did you go with all the gauge, efi, sensors, wiring mods etc so it all performs normal???
