    If you're not planning on going with more than, I think 500 horses, then you should be ok.

    No, not wanting to get the kind of power!

    I know some guys that do this swap for there 4 wheelin trucks, they make great power. Just stay away from crossfire injection thats the bad one!!

    Default Tune Port Injection

    Tuned Port motors make more low end torqure than the TBI units. Arizona Speed & Marine and TPI Specialtys have high performance parts for those motors. TPI Spec. has nice cams for the motors.

    So basically if I get an 87 or 88 Iroc Z tuned port setup and swap it onto my burb, I'd be alot happier over stock? Is it just bolt-on?

    The tuned port LT-1 350 in my kids big 'ol caprice gives him 25-26 MPG on the highway. I would be surprised if you sould just plug and play unless sombody makes a conversion kit.
