    It's 90's technology. Be cheaper to visit a pick a part and take everything from an early 90's pickup. I did this and got everything except the fuel pump for $80.

    900bux for that, no way.

    Put together your own junkyard EFI, if your going to go that route. You'll learn more through the process and save your money.

    he says that tbi flows 575....I always understood the sbc throttle bodies flowed 450 or so. This system is the same setup as the holley pro-jection setup but with an untuneable controller like Holley has.

    You could easily pick up an LT1 and a 4L60E with stock harness for that......

    1994-1997 are programmable, not that the previous speed density are bad. They
    have a roller cam and all the bells and whistles, best of the SBC.

    If you can find a complete running vehicle, side impact or rear, buy the whole car.

    Yeah, not a good deal. I picked up a complete 900 CFM Holley HP EFI system off ebay with the 600HP capable TBI throttle body, HP efi ecu (which is a helluva system), an MSD comp controlled dizzy, harness, WB02, complete harness, and fuel system for $1K. It sells new for over $2K.

    TBI is old school, but it is a step up from a carb one way or the other.

    I think you are talking about the 96-98 MAF Vortec setup with a roller. TBI like that kit and my truck (88-95) is programmable, you just need to burn chips rather than flash the ECM. I've done a lot of tuning on my truck though and it is not the most user-friendly...and after all it is just a smart carburetor since it's wet flow. I went MPFI with the Holley HP setup in my Camaro for this reason.
