    TBI Valve Cover Swap

    Thank you so much for clarifying. I think id rather have a breather and less lines. That way i can just have the pcv. I assume mine being an 87 they sent the breather back to the motor for emissions. But deleting it will Give it a cleaner look. Which one is the pcv in my photos and that wont...

    383 FI Swap from 350

    This is a show truck so it will be only driven in warm weather. These are great points. If i go with a 383BP with a carb, how hard would that be to go back to from a Pro Flo setup?

    383 FI Swap from 350

    Thank you guys for the great input. I have read that holly is amazing fi , but now im having second thoughts. I wanted a motor that had some power and a good cam and figured the fi opposed to a carb would be a better option.

    383 FI Swap from 350

    I also have the high press pump on the rail currently from the edelbrock kit. Also the kits dont come with pusher pumps so i wonder if those pps have check valves to eliminate “dry starts”

    383 FI Swap from 350

    I dont think the pusher pump will make the 60-70ish psi the Sniper Kit says it will. I just figured Hunter it will be a cleaner look. The amount of vac lines and wiring harnesses from the tbi to FI seem ridiculous for me when i can just have the sniper kit where everything is bolted pretty much...

    383 FI Swap from 350

    Hey all. I hope everyone is having a great day. I currently own a Edelbrock FI 350, 700r4, and 10 bolt on my 1987. I am pondering the idea of doing a 383 Blueprint, (nothing crazy 400hp) with a Holley Sniper Kit. I have a few questions regarding this swap. 1) The truck was orginally a TBI. The...

    Did they mess up belts?

    My neighbor whose a big chevy guy said my setup looks ok. He said the only thing mechanically turning everything is the crank (obviousley) so he said it looks fine? . I just figured the belts would fight eachother but i guess if they were then theyd be making a hell of a a racket or toss one...

    Did they mess up belts?

    Well on top of me trying to figure out a bad idle when warm, I installed a new coolant temperature sensor. When I went to fire up the truck, I noticed a quick belt squeal (new to me). I just had flow masters 40s and new belts put on. (Serpentine and two V Belts) from a local shop that works on...

    1987 TBI Rough Idle Help!

    I'm not sure exactly what running rich is on a FI , it smells like an old truck and there is no excessive smoke. I am trying a new coolant sensor and will report back tomorrow when the weather is nicer to take for a drive.

    1987 TBI Rough Idle Help!

    scanned today. No codes. Just flashed the “12”. I checked the coolant temp sensor. Should the plug be able to turn at all inside the sensor? It moves about a 1/16 of an inch. Also my EGR if that's what is in the above pictures is a solid dome. I cant stick my fingers in there to see if it...

    1987 TBI Rough Idle Help!

    Hey all. 1987 TBI with an older Edelbrock Pro Flo FI kit on it. I took my truck out for the first time this year and noticed that once the truck is warmed up to operating temp, the engine idles low and poorly at stop signs while in drive. It idles fine in P and N but when I come to a stop sign...

    Door Hinges for 87

    Does anyone here have experience with purchasing good quality “bolt in” replacement hinges that fit well to OEM? My top and bottom hinge pins are bad and the paints starting to rub on the fender.

    Adhesive Rear Cab Molding?

    Hey all, The rear cab of my truck has no molding that wraps around the rear of the cab. I very much like the look of this however the P/O must have patched the holes because right now it is clean looking. Do they make a rear cab molding that is a "stick on" model so I do not have to drill holes...

    Best Flowmaster

    Bucket im only saying generic cus there is absolutely no marking at all on the muffler , not even a P/N or S/N. Its also 2.5". Right now its got a great sound but its a little quiet. I know that running no cats makes a huge difference on muffler sound even if you are running a high flow cat. But...
