    From what I understand it does not control the timing as a stockEFI system does so if your motor starts to ping it will not be able to retard your timing.

    Factory EFI is a better option in my opinion. If you blow an ECM you can get one a the Auto Parts Store.

    You build the ECM....Radio Shack would have your parts....

    I just found it interesting. Could be a big help to the Caddy - non GM power plants on here /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    a simple tpi setup could be adapted to a caddy or any other motor much easier than most probably realize. No one says TPI has to use a factory manifold. And its a repost by the by /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif I'd certainly like to see one done up.

    Sorry about the repost.... /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I like Pontiac motors, and I am always looking for ways to FI one.

    How do you easily adapt the timing characteristics into a non-Chevy distributer so the computer takes over? Knock sensors? etc?

    Just trying to understand this FI Chit /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    thats what I'm thinking about. I'm thinking along the lines of non distributor pickup. Namely crank triggering. They sell TBI kits for Pontiac motors, I wonder what they use for disturbutor setup.

    This is a possibility for SFI, not glorified carb....

    no this was some other company selling kits. I know what you mean about SFI I'm just saying if those kits have a computer controlled distributor it would be useful for SFI /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    There's similar computer for IGN called something like "Mega-Jolt", you'll have to search for it - I don't have a link. I've heard rumors of an "Ultra" that has everything combined into one unit.

    SFI as in Sequential Fuel Injection? SFI started on Vortech motors I understand. TPI is not an SFI system. It is a batch fire system.

    Exactly. I like the idea of making something work rather than fork over a years salary. Call me crazy /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    The distributors used in '81-up cars are, as I understand it, all useable with injection setups.

    Not sure what Pontiac had for V8's in '81, but if the 301 existed that year, or any other Pontiac V8, you could use that distributor.
