Okay, so for some reason my car says it has TBI, and yet I found out it has a carburetor in it. I'm confused. I also need to know if my distributor has a vacuum in it or not? I'm learning something new about this car every day.

Question type: General

Need to find out if I need to get a distributor with a vacuum in it or not.  I think I do but I'm not sure.

well, sort of both, the cfi= central fuel injection is a throttle body type. That was on the 302 engine as well as an electronic pick-up in the distributor. look at the body of the distributor, no vacuum line means its magnetically advanceed or retarded as opposed to vacuum advance/retard. More info like engine and options would be needed to tell you for sure, but unless someone changed it, thats what it should be.
