I'm looking into putting a 350 into an 87 z-28 that was originally a 305 TPI. What kind of problems will i be looking into? I have no experience with this, and I'm kina curious how hard this would be.

Be sure to check with you local laws about emissions and such if required. A change like that sometimes can get you out of specs for inspection.

I also have a 87 z28 with a replaced engine, i replaced the old 305tpi with a carburated 350 from 1978.

i have lots of loose wires now but that doesnt matter.

but with mounting and stuff like that theres absolutely NO problems.

easy swap to me
