I have a '78 Pioneer Jet Boat with a Ford 460 Big Block V8 as the power plant.
Right now it has a Holley carb on it. We just started toying with the idea of converting it from carbureted to fuel injected. We know we'll need a new intake manifold, ECU, etc but we're wondering what might be the cheapest way in going about this.
Can I walk over to my local Pick n Pull looking for an old Ford pickup that has a 460 in it and pull the fuel injection system out of that and slap it on my boats motor?
When doing this, what do I need to keep an eye out for? I'm sure EFI intake manifolds might have changed ever so slightly between years. How can I be sure that the EFI system I rip out of the donor will bolt right onto my boats motor?
Also after talking to the guy who was working on fuel injectors for me was saying I should try to find a fuel injected vehicle that has OBD-I instead of OBD-II because of sensors, and the lack of a transmission.
