Maybe - depends more on the heads and year of block for the 350.

it sure will ,its the angle of the bolt pattern on the heads to intake that is the problem area they changed in the 80's ,you can use a die
grinder and open the holes on later tpi intakes and make them work on the earlier heads and visa versa ..youll need 22 pound injectors for 350 if kinda stock (up to 400 hp) maybe 24lb for something radical....

'And how much wood could a Woodchuck chuck if a Woodchuck could chuck wood'????

Iceman;

I reposted the post I refered you to earlier and the List of Parts that would be required for the change to TPI for your engine.
Now for a change to carb on a '76 engine you would just need an Intake that would fit the Heads and the style of carb you were going to use. There are some great 'Package Deals' avaiable from most of the major speed retailers that would give you all the parts you need to do the change over.
There may be a few extra's you will need such as a Thermostat housing, Thermostat, PVC set-up,Heater hose fittings (if needed), maybe a new mount for the Throttle Cable and of course those 'little' things that always keep us finishing our project until the auto parts place opens the next morning.
Let us know if there are specifics as to the manifold, heads or carb. that you don't understand.

- Here is a past posts that discussed lots of the info you would need -
https://www.camaros.net/forum/ultimat...=007147#000001

The list of parts required below came from this great site -
http://www.thirdgen.org/newdesign/faq/thirdgen.shtml
Parts you would need -
Q: What is needed to convert my engine to TPI fuel injection?
A: You'll need to find the following:
 TPI intake
 TPI plenum and runners
 Throttle body
 MAF sensor, intake hose, filter case
 Injectors (19 lb/hr for 305, 22 lb/hr for a 350)
 Oxygen sensor (if yours doesn't already have one)
 Knock sensor (if yours doesn't already have one)
 Intake air temp sensor (goes in plenum underside)
 EGR solenoid
 Coolant temperature sensor
 Cold start injector sensor
 Electronic Control Module (ECM or computer)
 Re-route EGR and charcoal canister ported vacuum as per TPI setup
 A/C bracket to TPI intake (upside-down U-shaped bracket)
The best (cheapest) way, is to find the parts through junkyards.

One last area of reading you will find great info on is -

Hope this info helps!
