Tbi to tpi

I have a 1988 Trans am with the 305 TBI and I have a 1987 Iroc Z 350 TPI. I am going to turn the iroc into my car, so I am buying all new TPI gear.

Can I use the iroc TPI to switch over to the TA? I also can use the harness from the iroc on the TA?

Re: Tbi to tpi

The tpi will physically bolt on. As for the harness you will have length issues battery located on the drivers side vs passengers side ccp . There might be differences in connector c100 you would need to compare the two.

You can use the same ecm but the memcal (chip) needs to be reprogrammed.
