    You are going to have fun trying to get a chip that will work with 10 to 1 Cr and the cam. If you do it It would be best to spend some time on a dyno with a good chip man to get things right. So things dont go BOOM! It will Cost some $$$ tho
    Why dont you just buy a 330 350 HO GMPP crate engine. lots of people make aftermarket chips for those. Be a lot easier and cheaper. All you are loosing is a few points of CR. Stock 454 TBI, aint gonna support much more HP than that anyhow.

    I did think about buying a GM creat motor but the one I am working on bulding is going to cost me about half of a creat. I also have connections on the dyno end on the deal, just will require a little convising to use it. The biggest prob that I have is that I want to learn how to burn the chip cause I dont know anyone that can do it.


    Hech in a week I may change my mind and stick with a Quad :dunno:

    I want to run TBI, but dont know if it worth the PITA that it will be to set up. That is why I am asking here cause I dont know anyone that has messed with it yet
