Default taking bids on setting up my tbi

1984 cj
ran great with a 350 that has about 200-250 horse power with a holley truck advanger. i bought another motor that had the tbi unit and everything i should need. i have decided to keep the motor that i have in it now.
instad of the one i got from the donner vehicle. but i do have the stock motorif need anything off of it. i bought the adapter plate from holley and the tbi is sitting on the intake....needs a lil shorter bolts.
i installed the intank fuel pump from a 90s s10 truck. it has wires to the fuse box. the fuel is hooked up all the way back to the motor but would need to be hooked up to the tbi. as far as sensors i dont know what else it needs. i know it needs a sonsor in the exhaust and i think it might need one in the intake. needs to be hooked up to the gad pedal and i am sure it might need a few other things. basically could u do it and what would charge me to get it on the road again. and where and when could u do it. i live in kalamazoo mi and am willing to bring to u if it isnt too far. if u have any other questions or if u want pics of everything let me know
and your price doesnt have to include parts
i know u probly wont know exactly what u need till u get into it.
thanks nick

What is your location? This shouldn't be too bad IF you just get a Painless Wireing Harness. It may cost a couple hundred bucks, but in the long run will be WAY worth it, it makes the job very easy and clean. I just looked at Bones CJ with a 350 and he was the Painless Wireing Harness for his TBI and it keeps thing clean and simple, everything is marked and they have great instructions and great teck support, just don't forget to follow the VERY important part of setting up idle speed

You should PM "Stan"

He has setup numerous TBI setups, and he will probably go to k=zoo

We can't really give you a bid without seeing it, or at least talking to you. But feel free to either stop by or call us.

JMHO:
Take a drive over to Howell Inc. (Marine City) and pick up a harness so you can do it yourself. It's not going to do you any good to be totally dependant on others if your system malfunctions on the trail or road if your alone or with a bunch of dummies . They can burn the prom for your application while your there (if you added a RV cam, etc...) and provide detailed instructions. You could have saved yourself some time, TBI doesn't require an in tank pump and it's easier to change an external pump if it craps out. Did the 90's donor S-truck have TPI or TBI, there's a big difference in pressure. For the money you would pay for an install by someone else you could buy the harness, gain experience/confidence/knowledge of installing it, and get instructions with a trouble shooting guide for future reference. I'm sure you could probably find one of the guys in Sundowners to help you, being your in the K-zoo area.

Or if your made out of money, I'll do it for $48Hr.+parts+round trip fuel for me to trailer it here

I'm in Frankenmuth, the total opposite side of the state. Howell will ship and depending on how bad your harness is hacked up I'd just be getting one from them, as the labor/parts to alter/install the stock harness correctly is often as much as buying new wire. Especially if I have to trouble shoot bad sensors or corroded connectors etc...in the process. S-10's had TBI and TPI/SFI and you'll need to know which to see if you can use that pump. Hard to say how long it would take, to many variables when using salvage parts. I did my last two problem free installs in about 5 hrs, adjusting all wires to fit so there's no wire snake in the engine compartment.

If it were me:
Howell harness: $325-$350
External fuel pump: $140
A few new sensors/filter/Misc. parts: About $100-$150

IIRC no, cheaper from a parts store anyway.

Howell all the way

Call Bill...he will hook you up with the simplest wire setup I have ever used. Full scan-tool connections, has it's own small fuse box. Very nice kit.

I have used several of the wire kits out there including painless and Howell was the nicest I have seen for chevy TBI. And they are Michigan based!
