    what do you tink about switching an 87 tbi on a 350 to a 94 to 97 LT1 setup. I'm told but haven't seen all you need to do is bolt on new LT1 and a custom $550.00 wireing harness and it well be twice as good as TBI. IS it worth it. What do you think??

    I would go for it I have been thinking about getting an old State Trooper car so I would get every thing I need. If youre still not sure we can test it out by dropping it in my truck to see how it works /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Nick /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    It is worth the swap. I have done it, and it can be done for less than $550.00 for a "custom" harness. I bought a whole car and pulled the harness out. I then adapted the harness for the engine to my TBI S10 Blazer. Depends on your electrical skills.

    Check out Impala SS Forum . I have found a lot of good info over there about the LT1.
