fuel injection in my other cars has spoiled me.
choke cycles on carbs can be a pain.

as far as installing one,
you have to be comfortable with working with fuel lines, pumps, hoses that
get the gas to the injectors.
can be a pain.

then the actual removing the carb and bolting on the throttle plate.
new fuel line connections.

then the electrical, you have to be able to mount the controller and get it ground and power. run wires, connect some safety cutoff, oil pressure switch,
find the proper power lead in the car the is keyed.
takes knowledge of your cars wiring.

plan plan plan. good luck

This is what I used to cut the 1 inch hole
Thanks for the info!

One more question:
Was the O2 sensor wiring harness long enough, or did you have to extend it?

No worries,!...Plenty of Harness! I actually just looked at it earlier and I will have to bundle some of it and tie-wrap.
