Eliminating the fuel injection setup in favor of a good ‘ol carb
is easier than you may think.
Just because GM LS engines originally featured electronically controlled fuel injection, that doesn’t mean that you’re stuck with this setup. For many racers or street rodders who want to take advantage of LS engine performance but prefer a simplified “old school” fuel system, switching to a carb is a surprisingly easy task.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with electronic fuel management, and I personally hate referring to carburetors as an “old school” element. But the fact is that many rodders and racers simply prefer to use a carburetor, either for the sake of appearance or to simplify the installation, or both (or because certain race sanctioning body rules dictate the use of carbs).
