I've purposely been working my way up through the various Opel engines and carbs, with the possible final mod of going FI. My recent troubles with my SSD set up is hastening the possible FI install. On top of that, I have a rebuilt 2.2 with Motronic FI coming to me sometime hopefully this year. It was going to go in my '75 Wagon, but I scrapped that project, so now I'll just have the engine sitting in my basement. I could install the whole engine and FI or I could remove the FI stuff and put it on my present 2.4 that's already in the car. The Motronic was made for the 2.4 and the engine is already in the car, so just swapping over the FI stuff seems the better option. It will have a larger, cut down, 3.0 manifold from a 6cyl, but the computer from a 2.4 Omega and the 2.2 engine will have the cam from a 2.4 Omega.......just like my 2.4 engine already has. I really like that cam. I could go with either engine and be just as happy
I'd like to keep the SSD for another year or two, but I figure that now would be a good time to start laying in the infrastructure for an FI set up. For now, I figure that means running the fuel and return line and an FI pump. My custom aluminum tank already has NPT fittings at the upper front and rear vent locations and at the bottom fuel outlet, so hook up should go fairly easy. I need to figure out the path and attachment of the return line and where to put the stronger FI pump. I saw a nice picture of how Opelspyder ran the lines on a yellow car, don't know if I have those pics anywhere.
So, this is my opening post on this long term project.
