    I just bought a set up (it's in the mail!) to switch over to TBI... I got it for $145 bucks w/shipping... you can probably get a set up for that much (most likely more I really lucked out) if it's used. I still need the new lines (too big to ship) and fuel pump (the PSI on my stock one is not high enough)... I also will need a new intake manifold (the TBI set up work with my stock one). New TBI set ups if you price around can be big $$$. Check around for a good used set up and you may luck out like me! Sometimes people are parting out a rig and simply want it gone for a low price. Oh yeah... if you do decide to do it yourself... read up big time... it looks complicated yet do-able if it's your first time.... I'd try to have someone who has done it before help you like I will do... Just make sure it has all the sensors and good stuff like that and you will be good to go..... [​IMG]

    Look around, I picked up a running TBI 350/TH-400/NP-241 combo for $1200.
