    CPI is a form of SFI in theory and it was common in that era. I have a 95 4.3 CPI motor here. Their is a little spider thing down in the intake that injects the fuel to each intake runner. I guess it is one injector with 6 outlets and when it goes the hole thing goes at once.

    There should only be one kind of 4.3L injection in '97. Sometimes called SPFI also. (The S stands for 'sequential')

    TBI ran from 87-95. CPI ran from 92-95. SPFI replaced them both, starting in '96.
