does my 1989 Woody have an electronic choke and will a 4 barrel fit or do I need a new manifold?


Asked by Mar 14, 2016 at 02:59 PM about the Jeep Grand Wagoneer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm contemplating upgrading to a new Eldebrock 4 barrel carb.  don't know if I have electronic choke.  Will I need to also upgrade to a 4 barrel manifold.  If anyone has feedback on going EFI that would be helpful, too.

By the looks of it these did come with a EFI system on them, but there would be a lot involved to changing it over to that. The carburetor would have an electric choke set up.

if I remember correctly working on these about 15 years ago we were changing these 3 a week, fitting an electronic choke to the cabutrator is simple and the performance will increase dramatically but you will be spending more in gas


The new 4-barrel will come with one if you order it with an electric choke.


thx for your answers. will I need to change the manifold?
