    Anyone done this fixing to start down this road on my car. My biggest question is can I just put a manual valve body in my aode and be good to go?

    It is simpliest way to make hp and still have driveabilty. Besides my car has yet to run correctly with fuel injection. By going to a mvb my car should not need any computer correct?

    The OBD1 stuff is not that complex. I'd go that route if it were me.

    You should be able to just get the intake/carb, step down the fuel pressure with a low pressure pump, vac or MSD ignition, get the right fuel line fittings, and it should run. The AODE will need a piggyback computer. I know the classic guys use them when they add a AODE. You'll have to do some wiring on the gauges and body harness for circuits that are no longer needed.

    I know a couple of guys have carbureted setups on here. Maybe they'll chime in.

    I had a holley low pressure reg and a 255. Didn't work. You'll most likely need a low pressure pump. This was just my experience tho!

    Sometimes you have to run 2 regs to get it to work. That right up is more for a fox than a sn.

    Why can't you just mount a low pressure electric fuel pump to the frame rail by the tank then modify the pump harness to power the LP pump. I believe carbs only need about 10 psi

    Yes that would work. They actually only need about 5psi but you can run up to 8psi
