    It most certainly would. You will need to get a different distributor for the engine as the TBI one will not work with it.

    Thanks. I looked at Summit Racing for the dizzy, I really didn't know which one would fit the bill. Does it have to be computer controlled advance?

    oh... i was thinking F-body engine.....those were sfi ...the trucks were still TBI so YES on the swap pieces.
    No the dizzy needs to be mechanical NOT computer controlled as you will no longer have/need a computer.

    If you are running a non-computer engine with a carburetor than you can use anything with a advance curve. Basically the EFI and SFI engines are locked distributors and use the curve with the programming that's in the PCM, nothing more.
