My suggestion would be to look at the megasquirt. Its a low budget option with a fair amount of flexibility.

However, it would be much more beneficial to just start using some ecodriving techniques and aeromods. You'd probably see much larger gains there than going with a fuel injected setup assuming your carbs are tuned properly.

FI is beneficial, but its likely to be kind of expensive. The mpguino is a good argument for getting FI but you could settle for a vacuum gauge to monitor your current driving. . .

Its kind of expensive so thats all I have to say. Also your pipes might not like it as they weren't designed with it in consideration.

thanks for the feedback... i agree would be kind of expensive actually wondering if be possible to retrofit a throttle body fuel injection from a 89 civic since the injectors spray into the throttle body of course the ecu would be hard to get to work that where i think the megasquirt would come into play.
