    I have a chance to get a low mile TBI 350 out of a rolled 92 k-2500. I don't have anything that I could use it in other than My carburated trucks. So who makes an intake for this engine to use a carb on it? About all I know is that the inner 4 bolt holes are vertical rather than at an angle.

    make sure you get flywheel/flexplate with the engine. i found out doing my engine project that a 2 piece rear main crank has a different bolt pattern than the new 1 piece rear mains.

    I just recently did the same swap on a '91 TBI block, the Edelbrock intkae number is a #2104 Performer intake. I bought the block with heads, covers,pan,balancer,flywheel and starter, the swap wnet great once I got the right intake, I tried to drill the bolt holes on an older bolt pattern aluminum intake I had. Ran great until the intake heated up and the it sucked air around the side. Jeg's and Summit carry them for about $156. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    For a really cheap solution, check under the hood of Caprice's of that era. I've seen Caprice cop engines that had a cast iron Q-Jet intake bolted to TBI heads. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thanks for that info. I always had good luck with Edelbrock so that was what I was hoping for. I'll get a compleat engine but it does have the old Borg Warner 5 speed behind it so I'll need to get a flexplate since it would be bolted to a th350 for the time being.

    Cause I just want to replace the 305 in my recent truck I picked up and since it would not be a daily driver I would just assume keep it as simple as posible and low buck at the same time /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
