    Your choice of carb and intake (I like the 600 cfm edlelbrock package myself) and get an HEI distributer for it. Pull the computer out and push the harness through the firewall. Take the factory intake off with tbi,harness and all in one piece. Install new intake, carb, and distributer. Run an "ignition on" power wire to the distibuter pos and another "ign on" wire to the choke (if electric), run a ported vacume line the the vacume advance on the distributer, and tune. Box the TBI setup up and sell it in the for sale forum.

    87-90(?) passenger cars and 1-ton cab & chassis still ran carbs. Get one of those intakes. The truck one is usually iron, and the car one is aluminum.

    Caprice/Impala.. and the same-bodied Buick & Olds. Maybe add the 87-88 Monte to that too.
