258 TBI Swap Question-EZ
I have an 81 Jeep that I really don't use much. It has had alot of work done to it and money spent by the PO, and in the big picture it is quite solid.
Here is the set-up:
SPOA, Dana 44's, 37" tires, 4.10's and a T-176.
I have driven it very little because truthfully, it has not ran real great since I got it. Good, but never as good as I would like, that and it is hard on gas I guess since I live so far from anywhere.
With 33's in the summer and no top-around 14 MPG, but no more than that.
With 37's and a horrible headwind / rain / snow and sleet I got 12.5 MPG
Here is my question:
Assuming I do a homebrew TBI swap (picture running 4.3 rig in my yard) and do it simply while doing the Team Rush upgrade, about what type of mileage improvement should I see?
I know there is a TBI post that is 32 pages long, but I am mainly interested in people's thoughts on mileage and if it was worth it. The tech stuff will come later when I get closer.
If I could knock down 14-15 MPG daily (all conditions) I would be happy. I am most likely going to run a 35" milder tread tire for 3 season use, and save the big tires for winter.
Oh, and please spare me the "it's a Jeep, buy a Honda to drive daily" stuff...I know, I know!!!
