Carb to EFI?

Currently have a '67 with a 302 and was considering swapping to EFI. Would anyone happen to know a kit which is preferred? I know MSD has one and so does Edelbrock. I have a 2 barrel and I know those two kits are a 4 barrel. I'm just wondering if it would be a direct fit. Thanks Again!

You are going got need a 4-barrel intake manifold as well. Pretty much can't go wrong with any of the kits for a street car. Look at Edelbrock, Holly, Fast, MSD, and Atomic. See which one fits your budget and driving style best.

Well, most EFI kits run over $2000 once you include the necessary fuel system upgrades. A new manifold is less then $300. So once you add it all up, the manifold isn't really much of anything.

Care to provide any budgetary numbers for others looking at a similar swap? I know little things like having the O2 bung welded on and all those AN fittings can add up pretty quick.

I try never to think about that AJ lol. but I will look into it. there are way cheaper ways to do it than how I did it, for instance you can just buy rubber efi fuel line and use double hose clamps. that is what I did for my yj jeep when I did the mpfi conversion. but I like the AN lines. as far as the O2 sensor. the sensor and bung as well as a plug came in the basic kit. the kit can be purchased with the fuel pump and lines but most of the people who use that kit say it is not enough fuel line.

I took the car to my local exhaust shop guy and he welded in the sensor bung and put the plug in it. (you should never drive with the sensor in but not plugged in apparently) he did that before I started anything. he charged me 40 dollars which I thought was very reasonable.

ok well AJ thanks alot for that lol I went back and looked at what it cost me. keep in mind I had all the fittings to do the return line so that would add to the cost, and I had the adel clamps and grommetts that I needed so those things would need to be figured in. but again it could be done a lot cheaper than this if you go with an inline pump and regular efi fuel lines.

having said that here is my list with hyperlinks and costs.

Tanks inc.
Fuel tank 225
Fuel pump kit 210
Sending unit kit 35
1964-68 Ford Mustang Fuel Injection Tank


Mechanical fuel pump block off 16
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/su...view/make/ford

Atomic efi basic kit. 2125.00
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/msd-2910/overview/
Performer intake manifold endurashine. 349.97 ( optional)
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/ed...view/make/ford
Russell performance pro classic fuel line. If you need to run a return line You will need more. 109 for 20 feet
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/rus-632093
Fittings. -6 to 3/8 npt need at least 2 for fuel pump. 5.97 each
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/rus-660463/overview/
An hose ends For the pressure side you need 4 and 4 for the return side. 18.95 each.
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/rus-r70133b/overview/
Fuel lab -6 AN fuel filter.98.75
AmericanMuscle
Fuel lab Adjustable pressure regulator 161
Fuelab 252 Series Mustang In-Line Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator - 6AN 52501-1 (86-14 All) - Free Shipping
the o2 sensor bung was welded in for 40 dollars at my local exhaust shop.
I also had a lot of various parts that I did not need to buy like the powerbraid wrap. All the terminals for the electrical connectors. And the 3/8 to 5/16 reducers for the fuel pump.
For a total of about $ 3514.50

ok. I hope that helps

HAHA

Sorry to make you relive that pain, but I had a feeling to do it right was over 3K. You just confirmed my suspicions. Although if you user your existing manifold and rubber hoses you could probably squeeze it in under the 3 stacks.

yes AJ I think that would be easily possible.

btw. I took the car out for the first test drive this afternoon, and after doing a little tuning and adjusting it seems to be running better than ever. and I am really happy with the in tank fuel pump. It is very quiet not like an in line fuel pump. in fact it sounds just like my 89 convertible.
