Converting from carb to injection

Post by EarlHickey » Thu Jul 12, 2018 8:44 pm

Ive just aquired a complete injection system from a late MK1 Storm, is it an easy conversion to rip off the carb and install this lot?

You'll need the lift and inline pump, different cylinder head and all the intake stuff, assuming you have everything fuel delivery wise. You'll also need a different harness, although you could muddle through this diy, fuel pump relay, probably a bunch of other bits.

You're best off with a donor car for any conversion really, even with a native engine as it's all the small connectors, switches, relays, brackets that cost time and money.

Different fuel lines are also needed as the Kjet fuel injection system runs at a high pressure.

Not a easy instal to instal Kjet, digifant from a Mk2 golf is probably a easier instal.
