    ok Im sure this has been posted a million times...but that just means my questions should be easily answered /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    What EXACTLY is required to do a TBI swap into a carburator equiped vehicle??
    Can you just yank a TBI setup out of a vehicle, and use it? what sensors and stuff do u need...and how and where do they go?? is it a pretty difficult thing to do? I'm really wanting to get my truck fuel injected...but not if its gonna take a TON of work to achieve...thanks for any and all help /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    You need everything related to the TBI system out of a donor vehicle. Must have All sensors, wireing harness, ECM, distributor, intake manifold, Exhaust manifolds or Headers with a hole for the 02 sensor, fuel tank and fuel pump.(or you can use an aftermarket in line FP) fuel return line.

    and all that stuff should bolt on with not to much of a problem?? For the o2 sensor, could I just modify the headers I have to make it work?
