1975 Jeep CJ5 4.2l (258ci)

Post by xeroOTG » Sat Jul 18, 2009 12:24 am

Name: John Grandle
Vehicle: 1975 Jeep CJ-5
Engine: 258ci AMC Straight-6
Injection: TBI off of a chevy 350, 55lb injectors. They are a bit much for this engine, but it seems to run just fine.
Description: Currently running Megasquirt I on a v3 board, fuel only.
Status: Runs great, but the tune is nowhere near finished. I'm in the middle of installing edis-6.
Future Plans: Spark, WBo2, MS-II (financing is an issue, I'm a college student...)

Hello there,
I am impressed by your very practical FI update and want to do the same thing for my 1965 Willys wagon with the Tornado six. It has a Holley 2 barrel carb and the same EDIS ignition you were installing. Can you give me any advice on how to make an adaptor similar to the one you used?

Thanks,

Pavel
