91 2.3l in a CJ2A
« on: January 28, 2015, 10:11:05 AM »
I'm new here and I've read a few things on this page and it seems like the people on here are pretty knowledgeable so here we go. I have a 48 willy's jeep that currently has a carbureted 302 in it. the engine swap was done when I got it and it was really cool for a while until I snapped the frame. I found a new frame and always told myself that when I get to the point of putting the new frame in it that I would get rid of the 302 and go with something a little smaller. after doing some research I found a company that has a full adapter setup to drop a 2.3l in a jeep like mine. I have a friend with a 91 mustang that has a fuel injected 2.3l in it but I don't know much about them (this one has the dual spark plug setup). my question is what does that engine need to see to run? id like to keep the fuel injection if possible but what does the ecm look at to make that engine run? if I can figure that out then I can go through the rest of the wiring harness and get rid of unneeded wires. if this just seems un-doable then how could you convert that engine to carbureted? I've seen different intake manifolds for those so a guy can bolt on a carburetor but if you do that then what do you do about the fuel injector holes in the head?
