What is involved in putting a T.P.I. unit from an older Camaro on a 69 Camaro. My friends dad did this on a 57 Bel Air with a mild 406 and it will flat out run. I love the driveability of the fuel injection. Any ideas on cost? I havent talked to him about it yet. How does the T.P.I. compare with Holley's new multi point system in price and performance? By the way this will be going on a 383 with a healthy cam. alum. heads and all the good stuff. Thanks for the help.

A lot of people don't think the aftermarket fuel injection set-ups are very good for the amount of money they cost.

There are several companies that specialize in TPI swaps for early cars. Also, GM is supposedly going to offer their small block Ram Jet fuel injection system on a stand alone basis. Thsis system would be great because it doesnt require a huge wiring harness like a TPI swap would.

Look in the back of a recent Super Chevy to get info on some companies.

If you go with the TPI unit, the factory setup will not flow well enough for your engine and the modifications. You will need an aftermarket chip, throttle body, runners and probably need to have some porting done on the intake to really make your car turn on the way you want it too.
