It might be easier and cheaper to convert to a 4.5?
Then you can buy the engine whole with ECU that works.

Peter Conan did other way round. He converted a 4,5 fuel injection to carburetor .. Maybe the fuel injection manifold is still available?
I switched LOBO from carb to fuel injection [Dictator management] BUT the 2,8 fuel injection is readily available ex Skyline and Nissan 280 Zx

Thanx, I’m actually want to it it at some stage, so just wanted to know if someone has done it before on here, but it will probably only be around next year sometime.

Hi,
Is there anyone that can help me with a picture of a fuel injection intake manifold. I more or less have an idea about what to do, but would like to see something that is tried and tested. I just want to compare what I have in mind versus what have already proven itself.

Thanx,
Rudy
