got it running good tonight, it would die after it ran awhile, ended up being the fuel pump was only on when the starter was going, I wired in a different fuel pump as the fuel injected one gave it too much pressure, cant wait to drive it,

Again, brilliant.

I know many are enamored with down draft webers, but just for argument/brainstorming, what about using a side-draft carb that feeds to the MAF inlet, and cone filter on the carb's other end occupying the spare tire area?

Mikunis, Dellortos, Webers ( I know, they're spendy) VW Kardins?

Hey ya'll what type side-draft carb would be best? That way you wouldn't need to cut the hood, maybe?

Ok took the car out on its first trip put 100 miles on it , hears a pic of it sneakin threw the hood this is with the engine lowered with a 2" block so on a stock car the filter would be sittin 2" higher ,I learned a few things first the stock EA82 radiator with only 1 fan dont cut it for off road use, need to upgrade to a bigger rad and 2 fans, second I had replaced the stock FI pump with a lower presure carb pump and installed it under the hood, this doesnt work as the pump has to suck and it ends up suckin air, so we swapped it to the stock location under the car and the problem went away, thanks everyone for helping and waiting on the carb swap, 3rd this weber I put on came off a EA81 car and on the EJ22 its starving , so I either need to rejet it or replace it with a larger carb more matched to this size engine, now this is were I need some help from you carb experts, what size Carb would work best with this 2.2 liter and what should hte jetting be? all in all I really like the new setup, it has way more lowerend power then the EA82 which was nice for offroad

The Jeep 4.2 is capable of running 6000rpm on that carb, so the size should not be an issue. What color are your plugs? Any signs of detonation?

Your fuel pump may not be keeping up, either.

the stock EA82 radiator with only 1 fan dont cut it for off road use, need to upgrade to a bigger rad and 2 fans


hmm.....what fan are you using? my old crappy loyale was plenty with the aftermarket electric fan I'm using. heck, I haven't used the fan at all all winter. only time I have problems is when the front of the car is caked with snow....


how's the rest of the cooling system? water pump, tstat, etc.

found one problem the top rad hose has a pin hole leak, also the carb is smaller then a 32/36, not sure but I think its off a Fiat will swap out this week with a bigger 32/36, still looking for jetting info, I guess I will do the trial and arror method, the car runs cool on the road, it was only offroad I had cooling issues

a 32/36 jetted for an ea series car is fine.if you go any bigger on your jets your just wasting fuel.i tried three different setups and i ended up back at the starting point because of fuel consumption.

whatever redline jets them as is what you want.might mess with idle control but that is about it.

Scott. Nice work man.

I just bought an ej22 from my mechanic. And my lift should be here in a week or so. Think you could pm me a christmas list or better yet post it here for everyone. Need ALL the parts to make this happen.

Also, could I send the intake manifold down to get setup for a weber 32/36? And send a disty down to be ground.

Also, what do you do with all the old sensors etc... Do you just yank em and chuck them? Or put bolts from where they came from? And Vacuum lines same thing?

I will work up a list of all the parts needed and post it here , on the manifold Im going to do the next one with a holesaw in a hand drill to see if the average guy with basic shop tools can do it , I will offer this service for those that dont want to tackle it
