So, a buddy of mine was asking.
He has an 81 ram charger, with a 318.

What is the cheapest, easiest way to convert it to TBI?

He asked about carbs, but wants to wheel it. I informed him that if you want to wheel it, then ditch the carb.

i know UU uses a 350 TBI setup on his 360, but thats the end of what i know.


[cheers]

just grab a wiring harness, computer, and the intake from another 318 tbi truck or ramcharger. 88 or 89 they started and swap that into the 81 shouldn't cost more then a couple hundred from pnp or other junkers.

he Daily drives the rig as well, so propane is not an option.

easiest would be to head to your local junkyard and get the tbi off an 88 and later dodge. That being said i dont think they really knew what they were doing in those years but for maybe a 100 bucks cant go wrong.
