    pretty simple for the tbi.... just buy a tbi manifold that fits carb heads,get a junker comp, and a tbi, and the pump and your done. edelbrocks sells an mpi kit that converts tbi to mpi for 1000 but you'll need the pump, computer, and tb.

    This has nothing to do with how to get in contact with a referee........

    I am wondering who has done the swap here in cali ,,and has had it passed it by a referee.:confused:

    I'm in cali and the standards for our rigs are real easy to pass as long as you get through the visual inspection. If he is a half assed ref you can get away with an illegal manifold but I don't know if im gonna be able to. It all depends..... I was talking about cali standards. It should all pass as long as you buy the parts off a cali k5 or make sure they certified for california use. Like i said get a holley or edelbrock efi conversion manifold(i have an off highway manifold not legal for cali but i bet it will pass because everything else is legal), I think edelbrock makes the cali certified one but its big bucks. the holley is around 180 and i think the edelbrock is up around 2-300. The 670 2bbl holley tbi is cali legal too.

    pretty much all you have to do to pass with an illegal manifold is get past the visual inspection.... not sure tho... ill find out in a month or two.

    Do you have any hands- on type of experiance with this? Do you actually know anyone who has done the swap in an 85 and have it passed? I was looking for more of a solid answer ,like a real person with real results.Jacob

    oh my bad... all i no is 85 smog standards are real easy to pass with an efi setup. My rig runs pig rich right now tho. probably should have left the stock pump in.

    What kind of setup were you planning on puttin on it?

    I dont know . I think that would be my only option. I dont think theres anything else you CAN do withought the smog shop rasing a flag.
