Retrofit TBI onto Samura 1.3L ?_?

I've about had it with this feed back carb on my 1988 Samurai. For the money of an upgrad carb or, a full rebuild on my stock one, I'd rather just go to EFI and leave those carbs stall'n on the hills while I sit up at the top waiting.

Best donor engine?
Tips and tricks?
Parts required beyond TBI, computer, wire harnes from ECU <-> TBI, fuel pump, fuel pump relay?

Thanks!

for tbi an 1600 8 valve intake will boilt right on your 1300. then just a fuel pump and wiring. Pretty easy, I did it originally on my 1300 but have since swapped out for a 16v.

That sounds like a really trick setup; thanks for the info.

Did you strip down the wire harness or just leave all the extra junk and plug in what you needed?

Had another thought; what do I do with the stock fuel pump? Block off plate on the head? Leave it on and just plug the fittings?

Are the rubber fuel lines already on rated to EFI fuel pressure and volume?

Thanks!

I had my harness modded by TT. I made a block off plate by tracing a gasket and cut it out of some 1/4" plate. Took all of about 20 min. You could buy a block off plate from Suzuki they come on all injected samis.

I never had a problem with my fuel lines, they should be fine.

It is only as cheap as you could get the parts and do some work yourself. It was a fairly new swap when I did mine so I paid like $450 for the parts then another $400 for the modded harness then $100 for the fuel pump. So was easily a grand into it but now the parts are alot cheaper and the modded harness has got quite reasonable too.

Nope, you need new lines. Check Fleet Farm, they sell EFI line by the foot, and good prices. Also check the hard line, hate to see a rust spot get ya!

Ever see an EFI Fuel Feed Fire? I've a video of one, things go fast!
