EFI on a 360 WITH a TF999

I probably need a new carb so am wondering if this is the time to leap to EFI.

Is there a bolt on that works with the Torque Flight 999 tranny? Anyone do this with theirs ? Would love feedback and part # if possible. Thanks

EFI is always a good choice, the auto trans you have isn't computer controlled, any of the current EFI kits would work. I'm in the process of installing a Holley Sniper kit on mine, the Holley kits have a number of choices you can choose from.

Subscribed: I am slso considering this upgrade once I finally get my suspension completely sorted out. Debating 2Bv4B, I don't expect this engine to every be a fire-breathing monster but also don't want its TB/carb to be the limiter for its power.

As stated above, you won't have an issue since the TF999 isn't computer controlled.

I have a Holley Sniper on mine with all the Hyperspark goodies to have the ECU control timing. I love it. If you're bad at reading/following instructions, then EFI might not be for you...at least with the Sniper, if you don't follow the directions, you'll be chasing gremlins for as long as you own it. If you do it right, you'll be just fine.

If you go EFI, do yourself a favor and get an in-tank pump. It's tough to use an in-line pump and not have it pull from the fuel tank because how low it sits relative to the frame. If the pump is pulling fuel from the tank, it's going to struggle and fail early...those pumps are designed to push fuel, so they need to be lower than your fuel tank.

I also bought all of my stuff through EFISystemPro. They're very knowledgeable and they answered all of my questions before I bought anything. They also provide 2 years of troubleshooting and tuning for free if you buy from them.

If you have any Sniper specific questions, feel free to PM me.

I agree with in tank pump, I also bought the sniper replacement tank but it isn't any different than the stock CJ 15 gal tank, no extra ports for a return line. It is galvanized and painted which most of the others aren't.
The in tank pump has an internal pressure regulator set to 58 psi, so I am not going to run a return line which will save some headaches with the install.

If the question of compatibility is centered around the throttle valve linkage, Lokar makes a cable you can use.

I used a Lokar kickdown cable kit on my OEM style MPFI with a BBK throttle body when I swapped to a 4.0 based inline six (4.7 stroker).

The Lokar cable has worked out very nice, I made a couple adjustments to get my OEM TF999 transmission shifting where I want it to shift. I used a spring to hold the transmission arm against the stop, and then removed all slack at the TB end for a starting point, and then fine tuned it from there.

Thanks for the good info...so a minimum of $1500 in parts alone. Will do more research but appreciate any insight and experience anyone can share

How about some idea of which EFI setups you're considering. You know, narrow down the ambiguity a bit.
