Im looking to replace my carburator with an efi unit, I currently have an edelbrock intake and dont know if a regular chevy efi conversion kit would fit on it or if I would need to use another edelbrock, would I need to replace the intake manifold to stock or would a stock efi unit just bolt onto the edelbrock intake? **And what would be the step by step process for the conversion?**
Im willing to put an edelbrock efi on it, but if I can help it id like to use a stock chevy efi coversion if its a major defference in price.

Do you
have the same problem?

The pro jection system works great. I put one on my monte ss in 86 and it was the best bolt on horsepower I have ever done.

The kit will have the step by step instructions for you.

How much did it cost you? And what other options did you look at? Would any system just bolt on to that intake or would I need to replace it?

It was a while ago but it was 300. Get the 4 injector one. It uses the o2 sensor.

Remove the carb and follow the instructions.

MSD and the Edelbrock are around the 2000 mark that is correct. You could do an efi conversion but it would take an injected engine too as the intake bolts are not the same and then you would need the sensors and computer and so on.

Try Summit Racing as they carry all of these brands and a few more and they can't be beat on price.
