    No,the old one had the fuel control in the module and sent gas from there(via the tubes) to the poppit valve at the cylinder.On the new conversion the fuel is controlled by the module but the injector itself shoots the fuel into the combustion chamber at each cylinder.Notice the two wires following the tubes and the injector controller at the cylinder)they tell the injector when to open and for how long.Look closely you'll see 'em

    Thanks Gary! I didn't even notice them. Didn't even need to look that hard to see them either. :facepalm:

    Will this net any increase in power/economy at all?

    Supposedly yes.I saw on another forum where a guy got a decent performance increase and double the mileage...yeah right,double?:dunno: But even if it's a little increas it's good.This whole thing might pay for itself in a couple of years in gas savings :dunno:

    Yep :thumbs: I had a big smile when that engine fired up and ran smoothly :D

    I suppose it'll take a few days for the PCM to relearn Linda's driving habits and be even better than it is right now :thumbs:
