I know this sounds insane but why not? I’ve been playing with(others call it rebuilding) the Eddlebrock Performer series carb that was on the Scout when I bought it and all I can think about is how simple the BMW fuel injection is that I normally use.
I know the new fuel injection stuff is crazy complicated but why can’t I go visit Autobahn Dismantling in El Cajon, CA and buy the wiring harness, ecu and throttle body from an older BMW V8 engine. Maybe a 540?
It seems like it would be pretty straightforward… seriously. Has anyone done this? And yes I know companies like Holley and MSD sell fuel injected carburetor kits but they are like $2200. And you still need to rig it up to your engine.
So why not weld a BMW throttle body to a spacer plate that bolts to the intake manifold?
And now the hard part. drill out the intake manifold for the fuel injectors. A beefier aftermarket fuel rail could be cut up and rewelded to get the proper spacing to hold the injectors in place
Throttle body size? Its hard to imagine I need that much larger of one given my lower RPM limits.
Would Megasquirt be easier?
