    Okay I got my hands on some one ton axles I am putting them in my half ton short bed soon and was wondering if my old driveline will bolt up and work for now or if I need a different one made. I also want to put fuel injection in, and was wondering if I could get any info on that at all. Either through a kit or throttle body from the junk yard or whatever I just want to lose the carb and have done nothing like this before. and will the throttle body intake bolt onto my current motor and heads.

    I dont know about the driveshafts. But as for the FI, if you want to put TBI on the truck, go to a junkyard and find a donor truck, grab the wiring, computer, throttle body, manifold, and any sensors attached to the manifold. Might also help to take a few pics before you start unbolting. If you want to add an aftermarket MPFI setup, many of them come with their own wiring harness and computer, but of course, they cost 2500+. Good luck

    Vortec rawks. But it's a lot harder to set up. TBI with vortec heads would be nice. I believe GM makes the manifold for it.
