What is the difference between throttle body and carburetor?
A throttle body is a body that contains a butterfly valve so as to control the flow of air in a fuel-injected car, but a carburetor has all the jets, venturi and float bowl so that it can meter the petrol and mix it into the intake air, then control the flow rate of the mixture with the throttle butterfly valve just
Which is better TBI or carb?
A TBI system won’t necessarily make more horsepower than a carburetor. Even so, a TBI system will start, idle, run and respond much better than a carburetor, and will maintain a near perfect tune over a much broader range of temperatures and operating conditions.
Can you Carburate a Vortec engine?
Yes it is totally doable.it’s done all the time. As already mentioned, you’ll need a intake specifically for the Vortec heads. As for the distributor, any Chevy V8 distributor will work. However, you’ll need to make sure that the distributor gear is compatable with the roller cam.
Which gives more mileage carburetor or fuel injection?
Which gives more mileage carburetor or fuel injection? Fuel injection system makes complex calculations which include fuel temperature, throttle response, etc to ensure the right amount of fuel is injected into the combustion chamber. This way the use of fuel is a lot more effective resulting in better mileage.
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.

Why is fuel injection better than carburetors?
Fuel injection, because it can be more precisely controlled, results in more efficient use of fuel, reduced fuel consumption and fewer emissions, which is the main reason it began to replace the carburetor in the 1970s.
What year did Chevy stop using carburetors?
1986 was the last year.
How can you tell if your throttle body is bad?
What Are The Symptoms and Signs Of a Failing Throttle Position Sensor?

- Trouble Accelerating.
- Uneven Idle.
- Check Engine Light.
How do I know if I have carburetor or fuel injection?
The easiest way to tell is in the way you cold-start the engine. With a fuel-injected engine, you don’t touch the gas; you just turn the key and it starts, because the injector automatically spritzes fuel into the engine.
