Default making the jump to carb on a 1995 GTS??

So Ive really been thinking about making a jump from EFI to Carb. I have a 95 GTS with a 5.0 AFR165s F303 exploder intake, catless h pipe, headers and flows... right now it has 19# injectors still. I really dunno which way i wanna go with the car. there is a mark 8 in the junkyard i was thinking about getting the 24# injectors off of it and buying a C&L with the 24# sample tube.

So lets vote leave it EFI or make it Carb'd (this car isnt a daily driver and i dont mind carb'd cars for that purpose we also have no emissions testing here in the south)

you dont need a carb, you need a dyno tune by an experinced tuner

Carb is great if your willing to learn. People(the younger guys) talk bad about them because all they know is EFI...thats what they learned. I was the same way.. I learned how to tune EFI and it became 2nd nature on my old 2v. Now that iv learned about carbs, they are easy and a lot more forgiving.

All you need is a vacuum gauge and a flat head screwdriver and you can handle most situations. Now obviously, if you want to build a monster car with a blower/turbo you likely want to go EFI. If you want an n/a car/nitrous car or maybe a simple blower(yes they do make blowers for carbs)...carbs are cheap and easy.

Very true carbs are super simple, had no issues tuning a carb on my old mustang. My 2013 GT yeah noooo I have friends that handle that on the dyno.

ive had tons of Stangs that were carbed the 95 is the newest ive ever had :P so im not scared of having anything.... with that said i just not sure about making the jump. i have a 670 street avenger which is way too large for the fastback(came off a 351c i built a few years ago) i could use and then buy a 570 for the fastback

then a used torker intake, ive got an 85 dizzy and ignition box laying around im sure so id just need to pull the tank and put a hose in place of the pump or buy a fpr to get the pressure down to a carb level.

Really though I think you would get better performance keeping it injected and going with an aftermarket intake, maybe injectors and getting a good tune.

Im also going carb. My car is a track only car so im not worried about gas milage etc. I'm thinking about trying a EFI to carb fuel regulator with a large return line just to save a few bucks.

I personally like carbs, dont have to pay someone to tune your car when you want to change somthing, also I seen the 429 option which I would say no to but highly recommend going to a 351 only way to go with these cars imo
