Default 94 gt, crate engine-changing to carb

Hey, im looking at crate engines and it seems carbed engines are cheaper than efi. at least i cant find any efi crates that arent the carb-efi conversion that costs 2500-3500. so i was wondering what it would take to convert my 94 to carbed. OR if you can direct me to under 6500 efi's . i live in nc by the way. thanks for the help!

the problem is the crate efi engines come with all the stuff you already have, intake, t/b, ect. you could get the carbed engine and just take the intake/carb off, but with your 94 computer you have to be careful about which cam you run. i'm sure you could get/order a crate engine for the efi setup without intake, ect.ect. maybe someone else will know.

the reason most crate motor are carb they are plug and play....

where EFI required the computer, harness, maf....

the why the price difference

Well my girl isnt exactly high mileage, at 94K right now, but im looking at crate engines because ive seen several companys boasting 425hp 331's and this seems like an awesome thing to invest in and just drop a kenne bell on i want a 331 with s/c is what im looking for. And a crate engine seems to be the most stable way to go about it. Could you guys direct me to a crate engine company that does good work for about 5-6k? (im looking for turnkey for the most part...)

buying a crate motor from anybody (even ford) is dicey. even crate motors need to be torn down and everything checked. it may be cheaper in the long run,especially if you s/c it, to get the parts to build a short block and have a good machine shop do the work on it. i bought a 390 hp 302 from ford and it ran fine.after a while the motor start going away and i tore it down and sent it off. it was supposed to have been assembled by fords racing dept. and not a normal assembly line.it was about to spin a main bearing so i got lucky. the bearing clearances were way out of spec (why i was losing oil pressure when it warmed up) and ALL the valves on one head werent seated properly.it ended up costing the same money as it would to just buy the parts and have it put together.just my .02. this isnt just a specific incident, i personally know three others who have had the same problems but worse. not from ford but well known companies that specialize in crate engines.
