Keep the fuel injection, just swap it over to the other engine.


Yes keep the fuel injection, I had both carbureted and injected Broncos back in the day and the injected was way better than the carburation unit.


Besides trying to down grade the 88 back to carbed would mean that you would be modify the fuel system so,it would blow the internals apart of the carb, the emissions system would have to be removed and in some states you won't be able to relicense it with those systems gone. It other words it would be a mess.
