I am sticking with a carb'd motor. I'm going with a chevy 305 motor with a Holley 470 Truck Avenger. I've talked to a lot of people and running this set up will work for a guy like me. I'm not a serious off road guy or serious power guy.
there's a few mods that let a carb run well off camber. my buddy runs a hot 350 in his yj and he did something with a copper tube drilling holes in it? something like that.
if you search you'll find write-ups. i'd tell you more but I don't really pay attention to carbs. personally i'd never run one. But it's worth looking into. it made a really big difference on his.
93 yj. 355 chevy, heads, cam, intake, etc. 35's, bumpers, winch, lights, and a killer stereo.
