You certainly can change to a carbureted setup. At the risk of takin' some flak, I'd like to add you should be commended for avoiding that belly button motor (SBC) and going Mopar. Good luck with the project!

The 1995 engine is the magnum style which means the intake bolts go straight down as opposed to in at an angle on the older(pre 1992) mopars.So you have to have a magnum style intake for a carb and there are several made.I like the crosswind style because they fit the magnum and the LA engine both and they are the same design as a performer RPM.You can use a 1973 or later factory electronic ignition and the ECU with the wiring harness.Pretty easy junkyard pickings out of an old pickup truck.Easy to wire and the engine will "asperate"j ust fine. The 1995 motors were great because the stock magnum head flows as good as a 340 head.
