    is there a \"ram jet\" kit

    I was wondering if anyone knew if chevy sells the parts to convert a 350 to the Ram Jet fuel injection?

    Yes n no /forums/images/icons/confused.gif ....................you would do better to buy the actual Ram Jet motor! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif By the time you got all the necassary parts /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif ,you'd be into it for over or about the price of the complete Ram Jet Engine. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif I checked it out with the boys at GM! They really don't waana sell it in parts form unless you need a replacement part for one you have! The parts cost is so outlandish that $4000.00 for the whole kit n kabootle is a far better deal. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Look out , Dyeager's gonna come and get ya, /forums/images/icons/wink.gif . Actually I asked the very same question, try the search feature for it. Dyeager pointed out the fact the RamJet doesn't have an 02 or Vehicle Speed Sensor, so it can't do as good of a job as a stock TPI units. I'd still run it if there was such a kit. I thought I could buy it piece by piece, but the computer alone is like $400.

    Here is the parts list of that motor RamJet350 . Take the part numbers and type them in at GM Parts Direct

    Ram Jet is a complete, self contained multi point injection system that only needs a power wire, ground wire and fuel to set up and run in your rig. The O2 sensor issue is easily overcome by buying the Arizona Speed and Marine 'Closed Loop Kit' for about $500 to make it fully capable. It will rev more than a TPI motor I believe, but think the torque numbers will be down some, tho I shouldn't say that since I really don't know! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Cost is the one factor that I can speak to - you could put together a TPI motor pretty much for half the cost of the Ram Jet if you did your homework.

    Nah, don't need to, Frank got it. Buy a half a$$ setup like the Ramjet, or, for half as much, get a real TPI setup, that wasn't designed for a boat. $500 "closed loop" kit? LMAO, who wants to buy my new MFI setup?

    You get a state of the art monkey sitting on the engine pouring gas into the intake, you just yank on the leash to dump more gas. Could probably could do it cheaper than a ramjet too. For $500, I could probably throw food for a year in with it as well.
