hey, ive got a 91 camaro RS i'm trying to convert to a IROC but just today
it gave me some problems wanting to start and hold its idel (its a 305 tbi) and it
died 2wice (the comp. tried to keep it alive but failed miserable, it studdered for a sec, and died), i had to give it gas to keep it alive the 3rd time and it did good from there., I heard from another guy
that his firebird (third gen) was giving him fuel line problems a lot, and
so i think this may be my problem. I was low on gas, but it had plenty, i
drove 10-15 miles then to a gas station and topped off at 13.684 gall. Any
ideas? Is it hard to replace fuel lines, or should i start simple like fuel
filter, fuel pump? I have no idea what all has been done to this car (as far as repair), i bought it in
spring break 00'
Please Help
*Update* The past 2 days its been running fine, however, I know it will come back.. I had a similar problem with a 1976 Nova, it was the fuel filter.

Hello there, I am going to guess that your motor is not rich enough when cold. After a few trys, either it is just warm enough or it seems as though the richening part of the tbi is finally going. I am not that knoledgable with FI units, a Quadrajet or Holley I can do very well though. I wanted to give you something to look at anyway. Galen

I had this same problem in my 91' GMC truck. You need to replace the fuel pump in the tank. It is a pain in the butt to do alone but still can be done.
