    The manifold is a direct bolt on, but it is overpriced and doesn't do much to boost power as it flows poorly. You would be much better off to swap in a holley systemax fuel injection manifold, or a regular 4BBL manifold with a 4BBL to TBI adapter.

    Yeah, check out Holley, 87-up and Holley, pre 87
    The web pages say they are not recommended, but that must be an emissions loophole, as lots of the Camaro TBI guys have installed them with great results. Third Gen BBS has lots of good info in the TBI and PROM sections.
