Fuel injection to Caburated

hey everyone i've come to this website to ask any of you for help on converting my EFI 5.9L(360) 1999 ram into a high performance carborated beast! I have gone to many shops and so far i found the best way to go is with edelbrock. Now i need to find an efficent way to attach the fuel lines. Any Help Is Greatly Appriciated!

Why move away from fuel injection? Its a much nicer system than the carburetor, especially if this is your daily driver.

Is that the only modification you want to make? If so, I'd just leave the fuel injection on it. YOu won't get any more performance from the carb.

You will lose power, it will drink fuel, and it will probably be a pig to drive, especially when cold.

Why do you want to do this backward step ?

Not legal in California unless you're playing in the dirt. So what are you doing with it?

How much negativity can we put out?

Maybe he just wants a carb.
