    ok on my 76 blazer i have the stock 350 with aluminum intake, headers, gear drive, flows, and 600 manual choke carb, what i was wondering is i have a fuel injection set up off a 88 i wrecked, works good but dont know if its worth the hasle, also i seen that holey has a carb out designed to help get fuel when your rock climbing or have the vehicle running not so flat on the gound, what would be best for me? i plan on running a few trails prob nothing over a 3, but playing in alot of mud, and just showing off now ans then, i honestly dont have the time or the money to get in to the level 5 trails, and get to crazy with it, just wonderig, tahnks guys /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I thought that the Fuel injection upgrade was well worth the effort. Ran much better and gave me better low end performance.

    i think that geardrive might give a false signal to the Knock sensor And make it run rich sound like your motors to built to use factory FI what cam do you have ,compression etc. etc. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    im running the stock 350 that came out in 76 has almost 100,000 on it original miles, i hones it, over sized rings, new gaskets and so on, but the intake, carb, headers, rv cam, gear drive, and flows with turn downs, i love the way my 87 cranks right up, and the fi i have is off an 88 so its the same, didnt know if my 76 would benifit from it or have more trouble then its worth, im prob running 8:5/1 if im lucky, its a dog thats why im putting 456 gears in it /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Well It should work then except the gear drive might give you problems I'm not sure if an 88 would have a knock sensor or not /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    That's obd2 isn't it I think that motor also has the crank trigger ignition I'm sure somebody out there has done that swap before that would be one bad rig with an LT1 motor /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
