Question TBI 302 to MFI 302

Hi all. I have a 302 with TBI and another with MPF. What would I have to do to put the MFI on the TBI one? Can I simply swap the intake or does it go deeper? Thanks.

Yes, you'll need to swap out the computer, engine wiring harness, fuel rails, etc.

The manifold injection is bank fired, and the system works totally differently than the throttle body injection. It's kind of a tricky swap that might not be worth the trouble, IMO.

What's the desire to make the swap?

Well, I have an 89 Crown vic with a tired motor but, I have a motor from and older Grand Marquis. Was hoping to just swap intakes and put everything on the tbi motor. I mistakenly said MPFI. The newer one says 5.0 EFI. Sorry for that.
