    doing a frame off rebuild on a 88 blazer taking drive train outta my pick up and putting in blazer parts are:
    stroked 350 388 cid should be around 350hp 400 ftlb torque
    3:73 dana 60s
    35"bfgs
    engine is carburated now but thinking about fuel injection i dont know uch about injection questioms are
    should i stay carburated?
    can i use most of the factory injection?
    should i just get a holly or edelbrock injection kit? i was told if i use factory inj stuff i will need larger tbi intake and chip thats gotta be around 800 dollars or more??

    I would inject it with a factory system. Get it running and debugged. Then do some mods to the TBI system to extract the horsepower. It should run OK with a stock TBI if the cam isn't too radical.

    He means that your gear selection is too shallow for you chosen setup.
    Look more towards 4.56.
