Short answer - not really for a noob, no. Hitachi's are the spawn of satan, and the C/W is actually easier to work on.

Get a Weber DGV. It will be cheaper once it's all said and done.

GD i need something that can pass smog and one of the reasons i failed is becuase i was missing a hose.(visual inspection)...i dont think they will pass me if all the hoses are plugged off...plus i need a weber and i dont know where i can find one. if you know anybody who has one pm me.

The Weber's are availible new in a kit from Redline - K731 or K730 depending on EA81/82. They run about $375

Find another place to do the inspection that doesn't do a visual - not all do, and plenty from WA have smogged Weber'd EA81's - talk to Edrach I know he's done it.

Or retrofit the SPFI - it's not really as hard as it sounds, less expensive than a weber, and you'll easily pass a visual.

well thats what i'd really like to do is SPFI. but i'd need some help on that one ,and the only person that could help me with that is subieman and he's really busy.

i know where i could find parts tho:grin:

Sadly I really don't have time for making harnesses right now - I was going to make some but the intrest just isn't there. Not enough people that are skilled enough or that want it badly enough to swap from the Weber to the SPFI - even I am going to switch to MS in the future. I have vehicles needing work stacked up for the next 6 months at least - half of which aren't even mine :rolleyes:, and I've been working tons of overtime at work - four 16's in a row last week :eek:

You gotta start out somewhere man. Don't be scared of the spfi swap. Its one of the simplest motor upgrades you could do.

I will do the wiring and disty gear swap if you want.
