      Probably a 2bbl carb spacer will work just fine. Its the same bolt pattern as the CFI throttle body. No idea what (if anything) it would do for power but I really doubt it would hurt anything. You might get more out of the CFI if you do a nice intake. A dual plane 4bbl intake with a 2bbl adapter will do the trick. Exhaust is also a big help.

        Other than what gadget just suggested, your pretty limited to what you can do with a CFI system as far as power goes. Personally I would convert to carb or EFI.

          Is a CFI system not tuneable at all? Can you not increase injector size or anything?

          My worst enemies are those who presume me to be harmless. They cannot imagine how much I resent and disdain them, or just how great a threat they would face if I could get at them. Everything in their behavior speaks of insult and presumptuousness, and for now it is all I can do to make constructive use of my anger toward them. At this time, I just make a list of them and keep a watch on. Some day, with the help of time, space, and circumstance, I will be able to humiliate them properly - not in a manner they would enjoy, but in a style calculated to make them wish that they had never been born.

                Why waste the time with a 2bbl? If you have one available, you could... but I'd say go ahead with the 4bbl if you're gonna do it.

                  Let's get down to it here. What are you looking for in your engine? More performance? Better Fuel economy? Is your CFI giving you shit? If it's economy, you ain't gonna get it with a 2bbl. I'm pulling 14-16 MPG with mine, and I'm pretty dissapointed with it. The car will fly when you put the pedal to the floor though. 2bbls can be modified to flow around 450 CFM, but then again, you could just get a 4bbl to do the same thing.

                  Tell us what you want and we can help you. If you want to put a 2bbl on just to replace a badly functioning CFI then you might as well just go 4bbl.

                    Exactly. The 2bbl swap i did was a horrible waste of money, but a stepping stone in my conversion to a 4bbl.

                    Ask scott. the 4bbl conversion will move pretty well...

                              4bbl is mostly overkill on a stock 5.0, especially on a CFI motor. Stick a good 2bbl on it and it'll be happier. Too much carb = wasted fuel. You need vacuum to make it run, and if you over-carb it you'll actually lose speed when you get it fully cranked open. It'll spit raw fuel out the tails and it'll wash down the cylinder walls causing lack of lubrication and accelerated engine wear. So basicly, don't over-do your fuel system. 390 cfm 4bbl is fine, or a good 2bbl but I'd really not reccomend anything bigger.
