That right ther could cost me up to 600-700 bucks. Im old school and this is what I want to do. Its not a daily driver and Ill keep all the wiring and computer in the truck in case one day I want to go back to TBI. If I wanted to stay with TBI and had the money I would go the e-street route but I dont and Im not gonna go to a junk yard and get used TBI parts. I can get awsome power and tourque by doing this and not spend alot of money in the process. I dont care about cold start issues. Gas mileage isn a concern.

Thanks everyone for all the input
Is engine life a concern? With a well tuned EFI combo or a street driven car you can expect to double your engine life.
