    YJ enthusiasts - nutter bypass question

    So I've searched for this, and can't really find any conclusive information for what I'm looking for..

    Basically my understanding is that the nutter bypass takes the stupid stepper motor out of the equation so the carter runs better....

    So... my question is, if I'm changing the carb to a motorcraft 2100... is there still any advantage for doing the bypass?

    I'm unsure as to what else it controls?

    HELP?!?!

    Ive done it. Weber in it now. It eliminates the computer from trying to do an auto advance on the distributor i believe??? someone else can correct me here im sure. You can also eliminate a lot of hosing. If you need pics of how my weber is setup let me know. Replace with new hoses though since your in that area.

    the nutter bypass also eliminates the computer spark advance as stated above....you need to change the wiring on the ignition module.

    Or even an HEI setup.....really woke my old 89 yj up!!!

    Or at least update to the ford TFI cap, wires and coil....it will really help and not too much money

    Yup the ford TFI ( team rush) upgrade is a good cheaper upgrade. Did it to my old yj and it really does help.

    The team rush upgrade is the ford TFI setup http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/t...w-pics-586158/ and you can get all the parts at crappy tire.

    I'm running the ford TFI setup on mine and had a jeep with the hei on it...both worked very very well.

    HEI seems to get a slightly better spark, but then again you need an entirely new distributor, but with the TFI you just need a coil cap and wires (and nutter bypass)

    (and the ford TFI is "PIPPI APPROVED"....LOL)

    haha, thanks boys - I remember reading all of that stuff months ago... when I actually thought my Jeep would be done and I'd be driving it by now. Countless hours of cutting, welding, fixing and painting later... I totally forgot everything about the ignition system.
