    Put the TBI back on? Being in Colorado, after I went TBI, I'll NEVER drive a carbed rig again.

    Recheck all your grounds and cables.

    pretty sure the negative cable goes from the batt to the front of the block, and there is a little ground wire that connects the front clip to the frame rail, and then a copper strap from the firewall to the back of the head.......and i think there is one more copper strap but i forget where i goes

    can't agree with you there... having wheeled with both a q-jet and TBI the TBI was only slightly better at angles than the q-jet.

    kiken88, when you say "getting hot" do you mean hot as in 12v+ or hot in temperature? or both?
