    alright ive got a line on another k5 (91) and its got a fryed wiring harness. I was thinking about putting my propane setup on this motor but i cant seem to find a intake manifold that will adapt a carb onto the tbi heads.
    anybody know of one?

    you should be able to bolt a carb to a TBI intake with a adapet plate if not all you have to do is modify the center holes on the intake to make it fit

    edelbrock 2104 intake manifold - fits your heads but you can bolt a carb to it

    I've seen carb to tbi adapters, but I've never seen a tbi to carb adapter before.

    I'm sure holley, weiand, etc has an intake for your needs
