Even when I was building my Fugitive II it had always been my intention to convert it to EFI. I need to learn about fuel injection for my freelance work as a technical journalist and I thought that the best way to learn would be to actually do it.

I spent quite a while collecting all the parts I thought I would need but I started the conversion in earnest a couple of months ago.

I had been running with twin ICT 34 Weber carbs and an electronic distributor so they had to come off first.

I also pulled the distributor drive and had a blanking plug machined up to block the hole.

The EFI conversion uses standard VW twin port manifolds converted, by Dan ST Engineering, to take Ford Focus injectors using off-the-shelf injector bungs from TriggerWheels.

The throttle body is from a BWM R1200 motorcycle. I chose this for its ease of fitting and the fact that it had an idle air control valve fitted.

I cut and mitred the tubing for the manifold but had it professionally welded as I can't weld alloy.

I mounted the filter on an aftermarket alloy bend and also fitted the intake air temperature sensor and the engine breather into the same tube.
