    OK - I have been searching for info on this for a couple of days. A few posts ago I was talking about a 96 Vortec with about 20K miles. It has all the fuel injection stuff - but no computer. I was considering installing it with the SFI, but my research shows that it needs input from a bunch of sensors (which I do not have on my truck) to a computer (which I do not have). Is there a good source of information - instructions - recommendations - or any other resource that I would use for this possibility? Or are there any companies that specialize in this (with good reps)? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    The sensors should be installed on the engine, unless someone removed them. When you say "all of the fuel injection stuff", you mean the sensors and other stuff.

    The other stuff consists of the wire harness, which Painless Wiring should carry if you don't have it, and the computer.

    You must use a specific computer for the engine you're installing. At least you need to know the part number for the computer that engine originally ran. I think some Painless Wiring kits tell you which computer numbers they will work with.

    Hope this helps.

    The only sensor your going to have issue with is the sensor that provides signal to the ECU. It mounts where the older truck runs the speedometer cable. Steve had to have his 205 custom machined to accept that. Then the next problem is no speedometer because the new trucks run an electronic speedo off the same sensor.
