    Ok I have a 89 TBI I am having some spark issues with. I am going to Autozone today to get it scanned. I have a 78 with HEI that I know everything works on. My question is My 89 has a remote coil the 78 has the "in cap" coil. Can these be mixed and matched? What is interchangeable? I would rather have the "in cap" setup on my 89 as far as heat and stuff I don't like the remote coil. The 78 is a parts truck so if I can use parts instead of buying them this would be great /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Thanks everybody.

    Wont work. TBI dist are totaly different. If you pull the cap of the TBI dist you will notice that there is no advance on the inside, the reason is the ECM controls all of that.
