What's the reason for the swap?

Well I guess its just that I really want a standard an I always loved the power u can get from a carb engine an im tired of having electrical problems with sensors an stuff

Were you aware that you can bolt a Q-jet on in place of the TBI and replace the dist with an HEI ? Half of your work is done right there.

i heared something like that but the vortec 454 has more low end torqe an i can build it they way i like plus my old motor is lost compression an i think it has a flat lope

do i have to change the intake or do they make a adapter plate that swaps it an where would i go to start looking into the q-jet swap

you will have to replace the intake, avoid adapters as much as posible
