You'll need a module to run that Ford injection system - no way around that unless you are an electrical engineer and have a lot of extra time

What about a carburetor what's the best carburetor to go with cuz I'm going to use a stock 302 for now until I get my 347 back from the shop and I need to figure out how to wire MSD ignitionu

Well - I like Holley because they are easy for me to work on - other people have other opinions so its your call.

Is a 600cfm carburetor better or 750cfm For a decent 302

I also prefer Holley - its a great performance carb and easy to modify and dial in, fits so many applications as well - I'd say go with a 650 dual feed if you're looking for high performance a 600 if not.

750 is a little overkill

Injection is superior...Carbs are inefficient and smokey...get pretty tired of smelling exhaust...Every ride a bicycle Oakland to Berkeley? no wonder I was diagnosed with MS~ will have a fuel- less exercise vehicle complete before too long and people will have to get used to bicycle speed~ harvests exercise and rolling energy into two tanks using nitrogen gas and rolling 1 inch Delrin balls~ ...oh well maybe someday we will understand not to pollute the air~

is anybody wired up to 302 into the ford ranger and what wires do you need to tap intoMy model in 84
