    Looking at possibly swapping a newly rebuilt 87 TBI 350 in for my worn out 175k 90 motor. What would be required to swap computer wise and other component wise. I know the serpentine belt setup would have to swap, just not sure on what else.

    Also let me know the differences between an 87 TBI and a 90 TBI

    Thanks

    Far as I know they are the exact same long blocks. Just get the 87' rebuilt long block and bolt on all your brackets, accessories, and intake and you should be good to go! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
