Well I just got done reading an article I liked alot from the october 09 issue the budget built 407hp sbc.

Well As I sit right now I have a l98 sitting in the garage. Awaiting a rebuild I'll be putting this back into a 91z28. And really want to keep fuel injection.

So my question is. Will this build work well with fuel injection. I'm dumping the stock tpi for a hsr or possibly bbk's intake (if it ever comes out).

I'm looking for around 350 rwhp. This will be transferred through a t56.

I'm really curious about the heads and cams choice.

someone's info would really be appreciated. thanks.

What year is your L98? Does it have aluminum heads?

Yes, you can get 350 rwhp from that engine no problem wiht the right heads/cam combo and the TPI system. The trick is on the computer. The factory computer in the '91 Z/28 will be a problem. To get the most form your engine, get a FAST EZ-EFI system to run the TPI for you. This will give you a modern computer with tuning ability.

You'll also need to get the intake runners from a Corvette, or some aftermarket ones, because the Z/28 runners are small and will restrict your 350.
