    Holley makes a pretty good bolt on fuel injection system. it comes with everything you need . I know a few people who have put them on their trucks and they liked them better than a carb. Got a little better fuel mileage too.
    Check it out:Holley multi point injection

    Yup Holley makes a good one. You could also check out Howell Engine Developments(they make custom stuff). I think Turbocity has some stuff too. www.turbocity.com
    good luck

    TPI - factory GM parts with a Painless Wiring harness and it works like a charm..........lots of upgrades available depending on your budget. Easy install IF you get all the important hard parts off donor vehicle (Firebird, Camaro, Caprice, Impala, etc.).

    If it's a stock 350, swap on a TPI or throttle-body system. This is actually a cheap way to go (for EFI). There is nothing wrong with a TBI from a 1987-1993 350 truck. You should buy a swapping book and go for it!

    I would not go with an aftermarket system on a stock 350.

    Going with factory parts out of the junkyard is usually a lot cheaper than the aftermarket setups like Holleys, unless you are running big horsepower. A friend of mine recently converted the 350 in his Wrangler to fuel injection (TBI). He just bought an entire donor vehicle, pulled out the parts he needed and hooked them up to a Painless Wiring kit (after spending a couple of days trying to figure out the factory wiring harness), and then sold the donor vehicle to the junkyard. Total investment was under $300. I think the throttle body (TBI) is probably easier to do.
