I am ok. i know for a fact tpi is junk. Sorry. a quick search will show that many ppl on this forum run carb over rebuilding a dying tpi system. If it works great but how long does that last.
TPI was not designed to last for 30 years of service. I would also not recommend running a system from the 80's or early 90's from ford or anyone else.
Make tpi right it takes a few things for a performance car. Not what the op is looking for but maybe this can shed some light on why i will not run one.
$200 New wiring harness.
$400 New injectors
$ 5000 New manifolds larger than factory. Yes this is for power edelbrock used to make some but they dropped the entire line a few years back.
$ 200 (price has dropped on these) New throttle body
$ 100 plus the maf New Sensors
$ 100 at least a hundred froma junk yard or more. MAF and plumbing from a newer car.
$ 100 plus the tuning time about 80 and hour. New ecu from a newer car with custom tune usally only a dyno tune will do.
Now you add all that stuff up and you have your self a money pit. that will still need a strong motor stuck under it. Its still over a grand just to get the parts to correct normal wear. then you need hop up parts as well and all those prices were on the cheap side.
I know alot about these systems and have tunred the page and not going back. But would be willing to help get it going if more info is provided.
