Swapping to carbeurator setup...?

I was considering dumping my efi 4.6l 2V for a carb'd setup in my 01 5spd.

Emissions around here is a nightmare, and my lack of knowledge with tuning and any parameters within make it kind of a turn off for me. Hoping maybe i can get "collector" plates, and dump the electronics, since i'd be more comfortable with the whole setup.

Anyone have experience with this? What motors could i run that would bolt to my tr3650 and stock frame, etc....?

Id like to drag race, a lot, eventually, and still keep it streetable.

Spelling Carburetor correctly would be a good place to start.

What a ******.

Re: Swapping to carbeurator setup...?

they make a carb set-up for 4.6, but im sure it utilizes sum basic ecm electronics to run the ignition system, since they dont have dizzys.

your only other option would be a 302 or 351. but u would have to swap out your k-member, add a fuel line return, and im not sure if that trans would work or not... but you could swap that out for a t-5 if all else fails.

i know u dont wanna hear it, but for what it will cost you on the swap (even if you do your own labor) it would be cheaper to get your 4.6 runnig right.

j.m.o.

Yeah, see, its stuff like that i wish i knew the details for.

Like, say i procharge my stock 4.6 2v, can i later upgrade to a 4.6 4v and run the same setup? Regardless of if i put a blower on or not, can i just buy a 4.6 4v and put it in? Do i need a pcm? Wiring?

Id kill to have some type of resource that explained it all. Im so in over my head i dont know if ill ever make my mind up on what to do.

Bleh.

Re: Swapping to carbeurator setup...?

As someone who has dropped EFI for a carb setup, I'm going to advise against it. EFI is superior in almost every way (except maybe not being able to tune with hand tools, but that's probably debatable...).

Really, it has been. I've learned a lot in the last month and its all mainly from the people on this site. So I'm incredibly grateful for everyone thats read all my rantings. : p

I dunno now, i think ill just do a Procharger and keep the rest stock for now. Maybe ill do some crazy motor swap once i blow it up or something. Fact that I can put on a very mild super charger, run low 12's, easily 11's with some other bolt ons and stuff, sounds very appealing to me.

Now i need to find the best package/price...

Re: Swapping to carbeurator setup...?

a used twin scew may be your best bet if your on a budget... that's wut i would do anyway. usualy u can find them on ebay from when ppl upgrade to larger units. you could prolly build a basic system for around 9-1200 i suppose if you do the install yourself and source all the parts.
