    OK well i think i found a good deal...it is a wrecked 1986 Z28 camaro with the TPI Fuel Injection bolted on top of a 305...now if i got this would it bolt up to a 350 and then get a chip programed to work with it...is that possible?
    If i get this thing they want 800 for it...the only place there is damage on the car is the passanger side rear corner...it was rear ended...the front was also hit at another time but the front is compleatly rebuilt with new fenders and a new front clip...so i was thinkin i could pull the motor and part the rest out and possibly get most of my money back out of it...dose this sound like a good deal.....

    Hell yeah it sound's like a good deal... I'd just take the whole engine out and put it in your truck..
    Those Z28 305's are pretty potent !!!!
    Then also.. you'll have a sweet set of bucket seat's to put in your truck !!!!

    Just make sure it's working fine before you buy it because when TPIs decide to go bad it means a lot of money in parts.

    This has been talked about on here a few times. Did you try a search on "TPI"?

    I think the intake runners on the 305 TPI's are smaller than those used on the 350TPI's.. Other than that, you should be fine.

    Well, my entire setup is off an '87.............put in 24 lb (versus stock 19) injectors, opened up the throttle body to 52mm (from stock 48), had a chip burned to match the cam/displacement of the motor, and wouldn't trade it for anything............motor is a 406CI small block by the way. Make sure it is TPI........not TBI..........I'm sure it is TPI but ya never know..........unless you look...........which I am sure you did..........[​IMG] the later year ones is preferred as it is Speed Density and your's is probably Mass Air Flow........more likely IS...........but can be converted to Speed Density. Either way its better than a carb............IMHO. Pics on my site below............

    Go for it!! The whole thing will bolt straight on your 350. The injectors for the 305 are smaller than the ones for the 350 but you can just replace them or crank up the fuel pressure. There's books out that detail the entire conversion and they'll tell you what pressure to use. I had a complete system lined up for $300 but my connection got fired from work and can't get ahold of him anymore...THAT SUCKS!!! Good luck, I know you'll love the results!
