Any bugs you guys wanna tell me about on this ride ?
Im a better Chevy mech. (had em for yrs..) but then the only thing I ever bought new for my self was a Bronco..

Re: Carb to TBI swap

Yea, that's what I was thinking, go factory Ford FI. Not sure though, if you did the whole FI and computer from a 351 model that had FI, wonder if you would have to swap your tranny to a computer controlled version, of it you could just get away with the FI on the motor?

Also, did Ford ever do TBI (Throttle body injection)? Have not looked at those first years where they began FI, but I am thinking Ford always went TPI (tuned Port injection) with the injector rails. Chebby went TBI.

Ok, speak up Norm.............what should I do to run TBI on a 460? Do I need a TBI setup from a 454, or a 350? I hear the 454 has a larger tb? Howell adapter, custom chip, and what else?
