Chevy started w/ TBI in '87. 1 year only for the '73-'87 series of trucks

'87 has no transmission controls, a few other things that make it easier to swap from what I'v heard... any '87-'95 truck with a 700R4 or 5spd will work with any non computer controlled transmission.. '87 might be non- EGR but I'm not certin. I'v never worked on a '87 TBI.. only mid 90's. so I'm not sure

I was researching putting a factory TBI into my hotrod, and found that it will work well. however, it will create a tame engine. it needs the right cam because of the MAP sensor. generaly good for about 300 hp.. the easy solution was an aftermarket controller, like a FAST or Megasquirt setup, to get rid of the cam requirements, because it can tune a hotter cam. then the only limiting factor is the 2bbl TBI, but the Holley/454 TBI flows 670 CFM which is enough for a Mild 350

How about some links for the fast and megasquirt controller. I am a tbi fan and am always trying to do a little more with it and push it to the limit. I am just starting to get into the tuning and have all of the stuff to do it now, now it is just months of research.

If it were me I would either go carb or go for a tpi set up. I wouldn't go half way.
