I think i may have posted this in the past but i dont remember at this point.

I finally removed the engine and will be disassembling it soon (taking longer than i expected). I want to go bridge port or half-bridge. I dont have any 4 port plates so i will be porting my 6-port (if anyone wants to donate unneeded 4 port plates ill take them) . Since i am not upgrading the fuel system i think its best that i go CARB instead. What do i need to make the full conversion?

The car is an 86 N/A 5 speed.



Thanks in advance for the help.

you need a low pressure fuel pump. the stock lines work fine. you need to figure out if you're using the stock ignition or something else...

You need what J9 mentioned, air filter, Carb, manifold, cable bracket, distributor, wastespark coil, regular coil, premix, fuel filter, and a flame suit for all the people that will come in here and tell you not to do it.

it depends on the hardware you're using. i know a friends setup was to put the carter fuel pump, in the fc fuel filter bracket and location, and use a 1st gen ignition system.

Thanks again for your input. What i mean is is there a detailed general explanation of this process? like the intake could be weber or holley or used and this is what you need for the ignition: and this is how you install it and so on...

thanks again

any aftermarket intake goes on the same way, its 6 bolts.... for a 6 port bridge a holley would be better, methinks.



with the ignition you can do a lot of different setups, the simplest is to get the coils, distributor and stuff from a 1st gen, it bascially just bolts onto the car

There is no need to touch the ignition. Leave it stock all you need to do is remove the manifolds and bolt up the new one with carb. The ECU doesn’t know or care if the injectors are actually there or not. However the P iron will care if they are not present so leave them there unhooked or plug them.



I prefer Webber carbs.



The money you are spending on carb would give you the EFI system needed.
