2.5 carb conversion

So i have a 88 with a 2.5 and i looking around the internet i found a Weber carb conversion kit for the 4 ciylinder. i was wondering if anyone has done this and if it is worth it. i of course would do drivetrain swap but i have pay for school and its not feasible. so i figured until then i would just make mine better. not to mention i'm tired of dealing with the stupid TBI setup.

What is wrong with your tbi? I would never trade FI for a carb.

Your limited slip differential sucks.

The Weber carb conversion isn't for your 2.5! That kit is for the GM 2.5 carb'd engine that the CJ's ran...should be K552 if I recall correctly.
