Throwing around the idea of converting to EFI would love to hear opinions from people that have done it

 

-what route you went

-cost

-overall performance difference(car will be a street car)

-any recommendations

Can you confidently tune an ECU yourself? If you are not, be guided in your ECU choice by speed shops or engine tuners local to you and find what they are capable of tuning.

Carbies are kinda fun, but...

Once you go EFI you won't regret it.

 

 

 

I'll be doing it too... next year maybe.

Looking forward to that medusa e21 intake :)

I have played with 1 bbl, 2 bbl and sidedrafts. The EFI setup with 318i intake is so nice and predictable for the street and variable temps that I would not go back to carbs.. just make sure you get all the right parts for the set ahead of time so that it goes smoothly together.. adc285e70d02fae26ff6edc05816bb7a.jpgd4718e4f02876c2c4b68c873b7884fd0.jpg

1984/85  318i.  

My only reco would be to get yourself set up with a crank trigger wheel.
