You talking about just hooking up the TPI? That's a pretty vague question. Give us a place to start (i.e. I tried this this and this, and this is where I am now...) and maybe we can be of some help. Sounds like the first thing you need to do is go buy yourself some books on the subject though. (or use your library card) Get a little background information first and you'll be much better off sorting out the details.

i haven't started on this yet, i was just wondering how i would go about hooking it up. i was wondering how much work it would be to hook one of this up. and by the way does anybody think the orignal frame can withstand this much horsepower?

Would be pretty much like any other engine swap except you would be bringing all the electrical components and wiring with you (unless you wanted to go with an aftermarket harness such as a Painless which I highly recommend). If its going to be a street rod which I assume it is I would suggest getting your chip reflashed to your specifications. What kind of setup are you looking for? What year TPI is it?

To get specific we need some more information bud.

Regards,

Dylan.
