Howell Engineering makes TBI systems for the 258 -- they're not cheap.

Here's a guy with thoughts on fuel injection for the 258.

Fuel Injection

There is a vast amount of resources on and off the net that will teach you the ins and outs of the factory set up. If your carb is truely worn out, refurbished units are available. For the cost of adding Fuel injection to an existing engine (ie the 4.2), why not exchange the whole engine/induction combo from a donor vehicle like a low milage,new, but wrecked/flipped Cherokee. Just a thought.

A couple of my friends have done just that - installed a 4.0 engine from an XJ and couldn't be happier.

You should look at the kit Holley offers. It is much less expensive, and it utilizes the same parts. The howell kit is a small company in Michigan, and still utilizes the same TB as the Holley kit. I have a Holley kit on my AMC360 and I love it.
