Love the carb look? Want efi?

Found this. I love the looks of a carb'ed car. no wires, endless options for breathers, etc. I will have this some day. Self learning, laptop tuneable.

Retrotek - Powerjection III System

And a video of it being installed.

So, $1500 to retrofit your multi-port injected car with outdated throttle body injection?

not for my GT necessarily, but even so I don't believe the power would be that much different, i would happily give a few horsies for a better look imo.

def not an electric carb. Its throttle body injection. I just love the advantages of fuel injection but want the looks of a carb. Its all personal preference, i grew up around the old cars and much prefer them in looks, both exterior and under the hood.

Re: Love the carb look? Want efi?

whats the difference? a carb uses vacume to draw fuel thru needles and jets. That thing uses an injector and electricty to spray fuel.

Re: Love the carb look? Want efi?

ok, in the simplest of explanations yes its like an electric carb. But that means your car has 6 electric carbs and mine has 8. hmmm i like that. i have a 302 equipped with 8 electric carbs....

no it would be like 1 single barrel carb with 6 jets, 8 on yours. I have to deal with working on 4 seperate CV carbs on my bike. It's a major pain in the *** and theres no way it want something like that on my car.
