    I've been very lucky until now,
    89 YJ Sahara carburetor has spent after many years of service and fun. Need advice on a carburetor upgrade. Wish I could make it fuel injected but too much money.
    So what’s out there?

    Howell fuel injection, header, HEI distributor, TH350, NP208, SOA lift with YJ springs in the front & GW springs in the Rear. AMC20 with G2 1 piece chromos trussed, Dana 30 with G2 chromos and 760x ujoints and MM Stainless Hubs, Geared 4.56. Tom Woods shafts, Metal cloaks, Caged, 37" Toyo MTs.
    If you can save for a little longer you'll be really happy with going fuel injected. There is Howell fuel injection (by directly from them and you'll get great service and help), Fitec has a new 2 barrel setup that will work great for your jeep (cheaper and easier to install than Howell), and you can always pull a junkyard setup from an early 90s chevy truck with a v6. Make sure you get the computer and wire harness for it.
