    I believe Josh at DPI does EFI installs on stock engines.

    SEO Motorsports in Melbourne FL has significant experience with EFI and turbos.

    Along with DPI's locations in OH and AZ, I believe they also sells their kits with PJ Grady in NY.

    If you want to alter the performance of the D in any significant way while still keeping the PRV, then EFI is much easier.

    Figure $6 to 8K for the conversion. By virtue of keeping in-tune easier you might get 5% performance and fuel economy increase. Add a turbo, heads, and bottom end work and you can near 300hp if your wallet can build up the rest of the drive-line. Don't forget to upgrade the brakes too.

    There is also the consideration to swap out if your engine it bad into a 3.0 PRV engine from a '90 or 91 dodge monaco/eagle premier. They have EFI along with being even fire.

    I'll give another +1 to SEO Motorsports; very highly recommended. Eddie has quite a few very satisfied customers with both EFI installs, EFI +turbo installs, and engine swaps. If there is something in a car that you want, Eddie can almost definitely make it happen.

    Yes. Everything in the shop minus a handle full of cars have been converted. Every car being assembled from scratch is built with efi and a even fire bottom end with 2.8 heads. This way it looks the part but also has a modern ignition system as well. The power increase is significant just by making the switch.

    Installs available by appointment at our Ohio and Arizona shops. Jobber kit also available for owners wanting to do the install themselves. Proper dyno tuning is recommended as street tuning is not advised and will end in a sub par final result.
