CJ fuel injection

I'm interested in swaping out my weber for a fuel injection. Does anyone have any recommendations on brands, brands available, war stories or anything I should be aware of?

I have a 84' CJ7 4.0.

Thank you.

Are you looking to simply do a TBI or Howell style fuel injection conversion, or drop in a 4.0 head with fuel injection? I considered running a 4.0L head on my 258, but ended up going with an entire replacement 4.0 out of a '93 Cherokee.

No head replacement, just a Howell tbi type, is there any other brands out there that you can think of?

a webber likes to run on road at 3.5 . and 1.5 offroad just add a fuel pressure regulator to the webber and you will love it . I did it and it works great.and cheap too.

I don't use a return line and I was pummping out 7PSI.

Where is the regulator mounted at on your CJ Blue?

I have a weber 38 DGES on my 80, 4.2, and have never really been able to dial it in, it seems to run rich, as I have always had a backfire through the exhaust when I let off the throttle, particularly on long downhills.

Fuel pressure is super important.
A regulator can be located in the fuel supply line between the fuel pump and carb.

I've done that also. Works great.

Here's the rub on this whole deal. You need to adjust the FPR using a fuel pressure gauge. Do NOT trust the numbers on the regulator itself.
