    I've got a 71 Blazer.I just installed a factory G.M.Tuned Port fuel Injection system into my truck.I took loads of pic's while doing it.The link below will take you to the site were I uploaded the pic's.It took me approx.2.5 weeks to comeplete,working on and off.I'm only waiting for the K/N filter to come from Jeg's then I'll be able to drive it again.
    I'd appreciate any comments or suggestions you may have.

    Sweet, hey, if you would be interested in writing a short tech article about the steps you took, like where you got all the parts, what steps etc. I will put it on the main page and give you full credit for the story, just let me know.

    So when are you going to come to Colorado and install one of these on my Blazer? FI is on my list but has not made it to the top yet. Good job

    I thought I was wrong once,
    but I was mistaken

    The cost was $1725.00 +s+h.This includes everthing needed to changeover to fuel injection minus the return fuel line,assorted fittings,throttle cable and fuel injection rated rubber hose.The unit is refurbished.Comes cleaned and painted with new sensors,custom wire harness for your application,new gaskets,new fuel pump and filter,electronic controlled distributor,etc. You can look it up on his site a <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.jimsperformance.com>http://www.jimsperformance.com</A>
    steve said I should write it up and he would post it as a tech article.I type one finger at a time so it may take a while!
