Welcome to the site. As you can see we're just moving over to a totally new format.

How soon are you looking to get your new Burban?

Welcome!

Welcome! I don't know if your are aware, but there will probably not be much differance in price between a '85 & '87 and in 1987 Chevy went to TBI. Just a thought, good luck!

"tbi"

Congrat's on the Sub! "TBI" stands for throttle body injection, first introduced in 1987. First light "trucks" with "fuel injection", as far as I know.

I'm not a real fan of the tbi system. Other than I like it better than real fuel injection. 2 injectors in what looks like a carb. VS 6 or 8 injectors directly into each cylinder.

At a cost of around a $150 each I would much rather just replace 2 than 6 or 8.

We still have our first Burb, the 86-2 wheel drive. Even just 2 wheel drive with the right tires that thing will go threw hell in a hail storm.

Good luck with your new member of the family and if we can help just give us a yell.

Steve

I like Ebay

I like ebay for alot of stuff, if you have the time to wait on bidding. I am constantly amazed at what you can find on ebay.
