I have an 87 W100 pickup with a carb and would like to get fuel
injection. I can get a 96 van with a 5.2 that runs great for next to
nothing. How hard to change everything over? Will the engine mate up
with my tranny/transfer case? or what's the chances of the new tranny
matching up with the transfer case? How hard would the wiring be?
Motor mounts match up? Anything else I should consider? I'm hoping
to improve my 11mpg I am currnently getting with an Edelbrock carb/
manifold/cam by switching to fuel injection. Any help is greatly
i have a 97 1500 ram 4x4 with a fuel injected 360. it gets 11 mpg. you
will pick up some driveability improvements but i doubt there will be enough
of an increase in fuel mileage to make it worth the expense and effort.
just my 2 cents.
Agreed that fuel economy won't improve much, unless he ends up with an extra
forward gear with the swapped automatic.
But drivability improvements, especially torque and horsepower, will
probably be significant.
