Thinking of having a Howell fuel injection kit installed on my 1986 CJ 7.

Any comments and or alternatives?

Please advise

FYI have had the Howell TBI installed and it is worth every dollar!

Turbo City's TBI, I'm assuming you have a inline 6 $1100 seems high. There are alot of ford or chevy motor conversions that could be done for less with w/ fuel injection

Thank you for your reply. Howell was the cheapest so far. I'm still researching the project.

A friend of mine installed the Howell unit on his 83' CJ with an I6. Keep in mind that he is not motor guy, but he was able to install it his self with out any problems. It did take him a couple weekends to do, but that’s only because he took his time do the job right.

The Howell EFI is a GM unit; in fact, it is the exact same unit as my 89’ Chevy truck. The computer and the Throttle body can swap perfectly with my 350 engine.
An alternative to buying the Howell, you might want to go to a salvage yard and look at GM truck TBI units on 5.7L (350c.i.) engine, along with its wiring harness and ECU. You might need to sort out the wiring.
The wiring harness uses GM designed “weather-pak” connections, witch is helpful because no two are alike and can only go in one way, so it’s difficult to goof up.
Another good thing is no matter witch way you go, replacement parts are available at any parts store.

May the force be with you….
