View Full Version : intake questions
03-23-2012, 08:38 PM
ive looked with no help.
i have a edelbrock performer intake for a chevy 350 and my 93 intake is cracked.
i was hoping to swap out the intakes but im concerned about it being a carb intake and i have a tbi set up
can i put it on or do they make an adapter for it.
plans are to finish building the motor for better performance and run a carb so it would work great
but for now to get back and forth what can i do?

You just need to get a carb to tbi adapter. You may need to make some adjustments with how things are mounted from what I've read on here. Just FYI I don't know if that intake manifold is a single plane but that is what is recommended by guys on here that have done swaps.

You may have to elongate the 2 center holes where the crossover is, but that's it far as bolting it on. Yes some adjustments will have to be made, but you may be able to get a bracket for the intake that will make mounting the throttle/TV cable easier.

I put my TBI on my dual plane edelbrock rpm, and we had to fabricate the bracket to make it fit, for the TV cable and throttle. But we put a carb spacer on there also. We almost didn't have a long enough fuel lines for it though, but we got it done.

be carefull when removing/installing your distributor i did a intake swap on my 85 350 and had a nightmare tunning it. ended up not having the oil pump completly connected to the distributor and now i have a knock!
