I'm sure that this question has been asked a million times, but I need a quick verification. Are the any differences between the carbed and spfi heads? Can I swap in a carbed engine and just bolt on my spfi intake, or do I need spfi heads?

From what I've read fellas over there have been bolting SPFI intakes to EA81's so I'd say that the carb head intake is the same as the SPFI heads.

I'd love one of these systems to run on an EA81 - that'd make for a sweet setup in my book!

Cheers

Bennie

SPFI heads have an opening on the back of the right one for the EGR hose. You can have the carb head drilled and tapped for that. Otherwise, they're identical.

Actually that's wrong: The carb heads have a hole off the back of the exhaust port that needs to be plugged to use in a SPFI vehicle.
