    Thinking of putting a ZZ383 (buying parts and building it myself b/c of $$$$) in my '90 K5. This engine typically comes with a carb. but b/c of the computer on my truck I was thinking of going with the Howell Multipoint system. Opinions???

    i would think the HT383 would be a better choice for a truck...

    I have the HT383 in my truck and i have never been happier. It has plenty of low end torque and it will get up and go. The little ricers dont even know what him them by the time i have left them in the dust.:D

    I think the HT383 OR the ZZ383 would both be great engines. However, I'm wondering if the Howell Multi-port injections system would work well on those engines. I can't really go with a carb. (that's what these engines typically come with) b/c of the computer on my truck. That's why I was looking at the Howell system. Will it work well?

    Yes it will. They can custom built a chip for your application.
