I got a 84 5.0 non roller 5 speed all stock except the afb 750 comp carb...I plan to do a roller cam conversion(f303 cam or tfs2),and either high compression pistons(stock bore) or a small stroker kit.with either ported e7's or a good but cheap set of aluminum heads.shorty headers,x-pipe and magnaflow catback,hei dizzy,1 wire alt.if i stay carb I'm gonna get a parker funnel web intake and a 600cfm carb.
I'm not sure if I would bennit from converting to efi or if i would be better stayin carbbed.
gonna be a simi daily driver and maybe a camaro and/or import killer,lol

I was thinking about going to a carb'd (I wanted to get rid of some wiring and make my car more simple.) and I am currently EFI, but efi has its benifits once I started reading about it.

I believe you have to alter your whole fuel system if you switch over to EFI and also you will then need a harness with a lot more wiring.

OH...and Cheap and Aluminum heads don't go together....:bigthumbsup:bigthumbsup:bigthumbsup

Depends on your definition of cheap... 1400$ isn't much and that is about what the TFS 170's are with all the bells and whistles.

As for the EFI swap, EFI def has a lot of advantages. One of which is that elevation doesn't effect the system as much. If you go on a trip and go up you'll lose more power with a carb because it won't adjust itself like EFI will. You also have a LOT more control with an EFI car. Just my opinion.

well carb is a HELL of alot easier to work on and a cleaner engine bay because of the less wiring. but EFI is more proficient because of the equal amout of fuel to each cylinder. self adjusting ( to an extent) it can adjust for altitude or if there is a problem with the engine.

but yes if u convert to EFI u have to get a in tank pump and change the lines at the engine, along with all the harnesses for the dash and the engine, depening on what mods you do ya may have to get a computer burned to run right.:bigthumbsup

and as far as cheap heads go.......i paid 700 bucks for a brand new set of pro comp aluminum heads that all the "big dogs" are trashing and they run freaking great!! they also trash the bbk ssi intake set up i have but ive talked to several ppl about the combo that are running the same and they say they dont have any complaints. id advise talking to somone with "first hand" experience not hear say.:nono:
