Howell EFI Celebrating 30 Years

It was 30 years ago that co-owners Matt and Bill Howell opened doors for business in Detroit. Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) was founded to immediately serve the hot rod, street rod and four wheel drive markets. The Howell’s saw an opportunity to develop wiring harnesses that would allow a simpler conversion to EFI, especially in older pre-computer vehicles.

Today, Howell EFI offers an extensive line of stand-alone and integrated wiring harnesses to adapt late model GM V-8 or 4.3L V-6 engines to any vehicle, making it possible for installers with limited electronics experience to add fuel injection to most any chassis, according to the company.

In 1998, Howell EFI began to offer complete throttle body and multi-port fuel injection systems that combine proven GM electronic components with Howell wiring harnesses, for both two and four-barrel TBI and TPI units to update performance and fuel economy for muscle-era carbureted vehicles and 4-wheel drive off-road vehicles, according to the company.

Howell EFI is now recognized by Jeep owners as a source for emissions legal V-8 TBI kits.

This year, Howell EFI launched a new website and multiple new products.

“This has been an incredible ride,” Matt Howell said. “I would like to say that it was uphill all the way, but with all businesses, there have been setbacks, slow times and missteps. Ultimately though, we have become known as the EFI Conversion Experts in the aftermarket, a title we take very seriously. We could not have reached this pinnacle without the people that first believed in our mission, the many employees over the years that contributed to our success and our customers and vendors. We look forward to what 2018 will bring as we celebrate our 30th.”
