Can I put a carburetor on a fuel injected engine?
A fuel injection conversion replaces a carburetor with a fuel injection system. There are fuel injection conversion kits that make the entire process very easy. Older cars have carburetors, but electronic fuel injection (EFI) offers greater fuel efficiency and improved performance.
Can a LS motor be carbureted?
In LS swaps or street/strip/race cars a carbureted LS is simple and less expensive. MSD’s 6LS ignition control only requires connections for the coils, crank sensor, MAP sensor, and the camshaft sensor. This is a great unit for those using a carburetor on their LS engine.
Can an ls1 be carbureted?
Converting an LS engine to a carbureted setup is fairly straightforward and requires only a few components to get your motor up and running. To get started, you will need an appropriate intake manifold that can accommodate a carburetor.
Can you run an LS engine without a computer?
It’s hard to believe that General Motor’s LS series of engines have been with us for 20 years. These engines rely on electronic control units to operate the fuel injection and ignition systems and they won’t run without them.
What makes more power carb or EFI?
Warren Johnson: Properly tuned, carburetors make more peak power than EFI in a Pro Stock engine. EFI performs well over 2,000 rpm or more. On average, if optimized, both systems perform about the same as far as how fast you get down the track. However, the EFI system is much easier to tune than a carburetor.
Which engine is better carburetor or fuel injection?
So with a carburetor, the best fuel to air ratio for each cylinder is approximated for the best performance. However, carburetors do last longer than fuel injection systems and are favored in motor sports. The carburetor is currently much less expensive than the electronic fuel injection systems.
Why are carburetors not used anymore?
Most car manufacturers stopped using carburetors in the late 1980’s because newer technology was coming out, such as the fuel injector, that proved to be more efficient. There were only a few cars that continued to have carburetors, such as the Subaru Justy, until about the early 1990’s.
Are carbureted engines reliable?
Again, because fuel injection and modern electronic controls are more accurate, fuel delivery can be tuned to match driver demand. Carburetors are precise, but not accurate, in that they cannot account for changes in air or fuel temperature or atmospheric pressure.
How much HP does a carbureted 5.3 have?
In a carbureted trim, the 5.3L produced 339 hp at 5,500 rpm and 352 lb-ft of torque at 4,700 rpm.
Does an LS motor have a distributor?
The LS series of engines don’t need a distributor. A set of eight coils are mounted near the spark plugs, and the ignition is controlled by the ECU.
How much does it cost to go from carburetor to fuel injection?
A single throttle body EFI conversion kit, by comparison, will set you back $2,000 to $2,500, and a port EFI kit can cost upwards of $3,000 or more depending on the capabilities of the kit and what type of injectors, fuel pump and electronic controls are included.
Do you need a computer for a LS swap?
Each engine requires its own computer, and the programming must match the engine, so computers can’t be swapped even if the plugs are the same type. General Motors produces several computer types and each is built for a specific engine group.
