    I know that 91 was the last year of the k5, but in the next body style, how long did the 350 tbi, found in the k5, last after the k5 blazer? And where can I go to find info like this?

    The TBI system stayed around until 1995. 1994 and 1995 were somewhat unique in that they had a higer pressure fuel system and used different injectors. The system is identical with the exception of the FPR and the injectors. 1996 was the first year for Vortec MPFI that did away with the TBI system that was used form 1987 to 1995

    yeah 87-95 on the american trucks. im pretty sure they continued to put em in mexican trucks for a couple years.

    also, the first gen 96-99 vortec injection system really isnt true MPFI. its got a center spider injector instead of 8 seperate injectors.
