    I'm thinking I would like to replace the tired TBI 350 in my truck this summer before I go to Nashville with it for school. I was thinking about the 330 horse 385 ft lb motor, but I don't want to deal with all of the computer problems and I don't have enough cash to do it right. So I'm thinking about getting the stock TBI 350 and just putting headers on it, good ignition and I already have flowmaster single 3" exhaust with high flow cat and ram air intake with K&N filter. What is the price on the motor and can anyone get me a part number so I can plug it into gmpartsdirect.com I'm thinking it's around the 1200 dollar range but I want to know for sure so I can start saving and plan my attack. Thanks guys and any tips are appreciated.

    Not sure on the TBI, I got a pre 86 goodwrench 350 (2 piece rear main seal) and it was just over $1200, also had to buy a fly wheel and harm balancer since switching from a 305 which added a little more money. The 86 motor (1 piece rear main seal) would have cost about a hundred more. Not sure if TBI motors are different than carb motors (aside from the obvious intake and TBI unit)

    Its more around the $2,000 range. We bought the 4-bolt version, but its still more than $1,200. The $1,200 is about the cost of the old style version (2 piece rear main, 90 degree intake bolts). Hell I'd buy the 330 H.O and swap the cam out for a computer compatible one. That would add around $100 for the cam and $300 for the intake and gaskets. Hell, the Vortec head will whoop stock TBIs and day of the week. You gotta get it.

    The TBI crate motors are close to 2,000. THe old style carb ones are around 1200.
