My sons father in law has a 94 vette.It has the LT-4 engine.If you have this option,fix it.If you manage a carb conversion,you will lose a lot of power/mileage and drive ability

Frankly a lot of guys who are in the know and who have taken the time to learn the systems are moving to computer controls for better fuel management and performance. So hit the books and study the workings of the system and fix what you have..

How do you even know if the FI is the cause of the no start condition? It could be something different or if caused by faulty FI, a simple fix.

Like I allways say...check the basics.
Fuel pressure check the prime pressure.
Check for spark at the plugs
Check for injector pulse
No spark and no injector pulse is usually a crank sensor.
You can also pull trouble codes from the PCM, get history codes. If no history codes ...look for any pending(one trip) codes.
Post your results here...I will help you out.
You dont want to castrate that car by putting on a carb.
If you vette has an OBD 1 connector instead of OBD 2, you can get flash codes (check engine light) with a jumper wire in the diagnostic connector.
