homemade FI..can it be done?

i have been thinking about going eith fuel injection like many other jeepers do. but i have also ran across the same problem (the cost). i am not so sure that i am going to like it enough to pay the price to buy a new $1,300 system. the Howell system i have been looking at uses all GM parts so it is easy to work on if you have a problem.

my question is if it is all GM parts, and from the pics looks to be, what are they from (comp, throttle body, wiring harness, etc.)

this might be more than its worth to try to piece a system together but i thought about checking into it.

Finding parts isn't too difficult, but it gets a little more involved than just bolting on. I researched this for my YJ and another project cluttering the garage; after reading more and more about the time spent trying different flashes for the computer to get everything set up right, I figured good ol' carburation was good enough till next bonus check.
You'd think in this day and age of bolt-ons nobody would take the time to experiment any more, but there are several websites out there dealing with home-brewed fuel injection. I just don't get a lot of time at home to give it a try.
