6 ECMs in 2 months?? You are a glutton for punishment, for sure. Try finding a stock intake and replacing it with that to see if that is part of your problem. You may have a vacuum leak or other problem with the setup. It may also be the throttle position sensor or another issue. You need to get back to basics with this one -- perhaps fuel pressure is a problem, or distributor -- losing spark under load.

There is Way too many possible problems that can occure when you start changing parts on a TPI motor. First of all, you got like a million censors, not to mention the EGR, chances are, it was blocked. I had an '86 with the LG4, with the 4 barrel Quadrajunk, And it was my first Z28, so I thought I could start pulling all the pollution shit off, put a Holley on it and found out the Hardway that you can't do that kinda stuff. Six ECM's seems crazy, did you put it on a computer? I actually never heard of a manifold that would work with the throttle body, an plenum. Put the stock one back, or Buy that guy Papa's motor, thats a good price...

if instred e-mail papawaynesc@yahoo.com i am in martinsville virginia,like it said under 200 miles on engine and trans.may drop price.need the x-tra room in garage.

Have 90s model 350 cu tpi has been running ok until starting cutting out under load. Have had trouble with starting. Crazy but I try starting 3 or four times then pump foot peddle and is starts. Now no fuel to engine. Put 12 v to tank fuel pump, it pumps fuel and starts. Wire going to fuel pump no voltage. Fuse is good, is the hot wire to fuel pump controlled by computer.
