    My son and I are converting a truck from carb to TBI that is manual shift. The donor is a '90 Suburban with an auto. Can I have my chip burned to what I need? Can someone here do it?

    Team208motorsports(? he's on here in other posts) and I think howell both have been recommended.

    TBIchips.com hasn't gotten good reviews the last few people I've hard talk about their work.

    If it's not a bone stock engine/installation a tune is IMO a necessity anyway. Even on a stock application I think there are gains to be had, but since you are going to need to get into it anyway, might as well reap all the rewards you can.

    It is bone stock, and I just looked at my ECM and realized we have an 8747, not a 7747 so my options are limited.

    What engine is the TBI going on? Whats the BCC code on the ECM, 4 letter?
    @dyeager535 is correct on a chip would get it close but it would need some real hands on tuning to be totally correct. TBI is not something that's easily done remotely, however with basic logging you can get a long way with a few chips.

    Stock 350 crate engine for the '90 Suburban, going into an '83 c10. I have the entire harness and cluster from the '90 Suburban and a VSS for the t-case.

    So do I need to send you my current chip? I just found your website, I'll give you a call tomorrow if that's ok.
