    The pics don't show it very well, but this short hill was very steep. Parked on it for pics, it could have idled like that all day long. Just the nice normal 'burble burble burble'.

    My days of wheeling with a carb are long gone. Sannd dunes in Coos bay oregon cured me of that. Flooding out, hard starts. Converted teh CJ5 to TBI adn never looked back.

    Nice pics.

    On the subject of loving tbi has anyone had luck upgrading the tbi engine to make more power? I’ve got cam , Vortec heads with beehive springs headers, Am just wondering what else I need for the whole package like tune or how much I should increase the fuel pressure. With every thing I have I should make 300-350hp
