    So, I have been thinking about this for a while. I just picked up an 83 K10. 350/350/208. Super clean truck, only rust spot is in the driver door. 98,8xxx original miles on it. I have been contemplating converting it over to TBI since I am going to have the motor out this week anyways.

    How hard would it be to do on a dual tank pickup? Anyone with any experience in this area, please chime in.

    Nevermind. I found a kit on Summit for a dual tank setup for TBI or their Holley projection setup. Uses a single pump with a valve redirecting both inake and return lines into the two different tanks.

    I decided to dump the saddle tanks in favor of a single TBI tank mounted further back. You can't really mount sliders on a longbed with the saddle style blocking the way.

    Yeah, I see what your saying about sliders. I was underneath it today and no way for them to get a solid mounting spot on the frame for sliders. I found a kit on Summit I might try when I do the swap to TBI or MPFI. Mainly this is going to be a DD for a while, and I like having the dual tanks. Fill up when its cheap and go for a while on them both.
