carb to injection? upgraded parts?

im in the process of buying i believe a 1986-5 mustang and it still has early stage of fuel injection where the injectors are at the throttle. what i want to do is get possibly a gt40 lower intake and up. change the harness from at 93 with maf and computer. + injector harness and injectors. has anyone done it before? is it possible? anybody have any pointers? thanks for checking out my threadd

sounds like a automatic 85. 86 has the normal efi setup and 85 with a 5spd have a 4bbl. Aslong as you get all the wiring and related components to go with it it should be a fairly straight forward swap.

i dont doubt that at all lol i used to work for a resto company and worked/drove alot of crazy classics with carbs. i want to swap to fuel injection becuz the car is beautiful and im getting it for really cheap. i wanna make it fuel friendly and daily it so i dont waste gas like a mofo or maybe even make it more apealing to someone who would wanna buy it if i decided to do so. plus its a fun cheap way to be different and custom

There are better ways to improve fuel ecomeny and performance for that matter for the amount of money your looking to spend. Of coarse switching to EFI makes the engine more reliable but CARB is the way to go for performance in any aplication.
