    Not a TBI motor but I have a 'Heco' crate motor with low miles on it sitting in my garage doing nothing.
    It's a 350.

    I believe the head angles are the same...not positive though.

    I have a GREAT deal for you. I have a low milage 350 ci engine (25-30K) in my 88 parts blazer. Ran AWESOME. I gotta get this truck out and gone THIS WEEKEND. You wanna come and get it 300.00! It huffs a little smoke on start up, but it sat around most the summers when i did drive it. I have the valve seals for it. It was mostly just a plow truck. I was saving the engine as a spare for my 89, but thats sold without it! NEED it out of the garage. Call me. 518-225-3930, or 518-280-1121. Or give me your Phone, I'll call you.

    Sorry bout that Ben.

    As long as the heads are designed for 1986 and up, you should be fine. You'll probably have to swap over your intake and TBI stuff.

    As long as the motor is for 1986 an up, you'll just need to swap over your intake and TBI stuff. Other than that you'll probably have to swap heads over too. After 1986 they drilled the middle intake bolts at a different angle than pre 86. You can actually re-drill older heads to work with newer intakes, but usually not worth the trouble. Or you use a pre 86 motor and get an adapter plate to mount your TBI body to an regular aftermarket 4bbl intake. I think both Holly and edelbrock make them.
