First thing I'll say is don't do it, fuel injection is way better than carburation. Now I'll say, It can be done but it is a lot of work, manifold, fuel system modified, ignition and distributor system modded to work with carburation, then there is the emission systems that will need to be dealt with, but if you live in an area that requires testing before it can be licensed forget it as it will not pass.


like he said, it can be done, but it will be tricky making it run right- why do you want to do this? Is the throttle body worn out? just buy a new one- the money you save in gas will pay for it-


I agree with the above 2 comments. Carbs are a thing of the past now and fuel injection is far superior.
