Hey guy's,

just found out about your site, Awesome!

I am a bit stuck i am in the middle of my first VN build and i am about to rip the injection off to make way for the carby through the bonnet.

Has anyone on here done this conversion before?
I am not to shore about the wiring and so on.

The car is being built for summernats and cruises so for everyone that is going to say i am stupid for wanting to change it i understand but the whole filter through the bonnet really does it for me!

Let me know what you think anyway!
Cheers:thumbsup: :wax:

Are you converting it to carby just so it can pop out the bonnet? Or are there other reasons too? If thats the only reason you want to do it for, why not get a high rise manifold for fuel injection? If seen them on 304s before... dunno who makes them or whatever though, have a look around on a few performance parts sites and you should be able to track one down.

BTW, welcome to the site mate! Any pics of the Calais?

Silly!, stick some throttle bodies ontop of a high rise if that's what you want, It'll still be illegal but it will be a whole lot less illegal than a carby

yea get a single plane manifold to suit the 304..... harrop do em for like 700 then like an extra bit of money to get em drilled out for efi....and with the carby it would never reach epa standards for rego

VN series II custom :) and VZ exec
carby would be nice, like 750 double pumper or something, but i think you would have to get a pressure regulator or something, and just a 304 manifold to suit 4 barrel carb, not sure about the wiring, id just rip it all out and see if it runs, was thinking about doing this idea as well, but still waiting to get a 304
