I have a 1982 Corvette with 108, 000 miles. It has the original Crossfire Injection 350. I want to replace the Crossfire with a Edlebrock Intake and a Holley Carburetor. If I do so what has to be done to the computer? Nothing but unhook the wires or is there more to it? Let me further expound on this: I'll use an EDL-2101 intake, HLY-0-80670 Carb with associated brackets and stud, a MSD Ignition package including MSD-6200 Ignition box, MSD-8207 SS Coil/E-Core and a MSD 8361 distributor, a Mallory MAA-4309 fuel regulator and a TCI-376600 torque converter lock up. I'm in SC where we don't even have car inspections.
Just a bad idea. You have to modify so much if you want to do that. If you want more performace. Go the direction of replacing the chips in the ECM. And the exhaust system. Number one. The 82 vettes are going up in value. Number two. Smog issues. Number 3. Bad idea.

Well there's an answer from Mr. Greenpiece. Any real ideas?

The answer I gave was from over 20 years corvette experiance. I was shop manager for Bonanza Corvette for eight years. With over 100 cars in stock at all times. I was involed with comstumers who were in the progess of the same conversion. They were there to buy parts to repair what they had done to the car. Because it would not pass smog. And it would never run correctly. And was very costly to replace the wire loom after it had been butchered.

In SC we don't even have inspections. I've heard I don't have to do anything with the computer and was looking for confirmation. Less than $1200 for the parts.
