    Need to know year and specs.

    Ryan's writeup is good, but it still depends on year and application on what you can possibly use and what you'd need to buy.

    OK the tpi set up i found is way different then that one. The one I found is of a 88 1/2 ton 4x4 sub. I can get all of it off this. The owner said there is something wrong with the bottom end in the 350. So he is parting it out. I can get the heads to if I need them. I was going to try to put it into a 1980 3/4 ton 4x4 w/ a 4spd if it matters. the 350 in there has a cam, (no idea what thow) intake and 1405 on it. I am the third owner of this truck, so I have no idea whats in there.

    Any other help would be great!

    thanks mike

    In other words, you've found a TBI setup.

    That's about as "plug and play" as you are going to get for fuel injecting one of our trucks.

    To make it clean, I'd "update" your truck with the newer wiring harness to include fuse panel since it sounds like that would be available, and getting uncut harnesses is difficult, assuming it is uncut.

    Throttle Body Injection

    Grab every piece of equipment that wiring connects to, and of course all the wiring. Don't cut anything. Take your time. Then worry about what it all does. :)
