    You can use a whole tbi system on a carb motor. Some newer ones have dofferent center intake bolts, take that into consideration. Some companies like Edelbrock and Holley offer tbi sytems that bolt onto carb intakes. If you mean you want to use just the air cleaner assembly on an existing carb,I don't have an answer, I never done that. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    A TBI air cleaner will work no problem, it has the same size hole(5 1/8), you may or may not need the spacer to allow thw air cleaner to clear the choke
