    Darren, I sent you an email. Doug is the man on TBI, tho much of the actual conversion stuff is the same for TPI...........wiring harness, sensors, and the main point that I can point out is the need for post '87 heads to match the intake manifold angles must be used.

    Let us know what else you need info on...............Doug is a wealth of knowledge and a great guy so he should be able to clue you in completely.

    Darren,

    I'll do you one better. I also have done the swap on my 77' and am about 1/2 hour away. Drop by and you can see how it goes together.
