    I agree. I converted my 86 from carb to TBI. One of the best mods I made.

    Maybe you can you can trade your carb for his EFI:D

    Why would you wanna do that...seriously.

    I had my tired TBI 305 swapped out of my blazer to a carbureted 350 that was rebuilt and had alot of balls...but at the end of the day, I would have never swapped. TBI got good mileage and was awesome off road.
