    I am starting to get used to the idea of TBI but am wondering from a performance stand point what is available, with the carb I can have a intake, MSD dist, and other doo dads.

    But I have yet to hear anything about TBI /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    I already have headers and 3 inch pipes with flowmasters..what else?

    Of coarse with how I drive this motor will be blown by the time I get it FI'd /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    oh it is for a 454 /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    heads, cam(not real big of course), can put MSD coil with ignition, can run a performance intake and just put a tbi adaptor on it, and uhh can stroke and bore.

    lowest cam on everyones list would be fine for rocks, I have a tow cam in my K5 and would much rather have that than a stock cam. Can you say bottom end torque? To run a tbi setup reliably its hard to put a cam that would be bad in the rocks in there.

    These guys do chips for the big block tbi system and gave me some tips to build mine for how I wanted to use it (cam recommendations, heads, etc.).
