    Just got an 85 DX that's carbed. The motor (top and bottom) is fresh with only 5K, so I dont want to swap the head. What would I need to handle this. I am guessing ECU and intake mani off a fuel injected car, plus some wiring skills. Has anybody done this before that can give me the run down?

    the carbed cars don't have a pressurized fuel system which is required for the fuel injection - you would need to swap in the entire system (tank, pump, lines, etc.) from a fuel injected car - you will have to replace most of the chassis and engine wiring harnesses with ones from a fuel injected car - been a while since i worked on a DX, but if memory serves me right, i don't believe the Si intake manifold will bolt onto the DX head
