Hi

If the vehicle is injected you're better off with a later multi point injection system

The OMVL Dream should be good enough.

i am right in thinking all i need to make it from carburettor to injectioin is the mixer and petrol emulator and a lambda control with stepper motor ?

I haven't personally fitted one of the older mixer type systems for carbs but I do know it's not advisable to fit them to electronically fuel injected cars.
