No experience with a conversion, but one of the better TBI support forums is on thirdgen.org, supporting 3rd gen. F-bodies like the '92 Firebird that is your donor.

So I've started reworking the tbi harness, I've gotten rid of all the emissions stuff and trans control. I'm only reworking it for fuel and spark. I currently have the 4 pin module on it instead of the mopar ignition box so wiring will be easy on ignition side. I just got the tbi unit harness and ecm out off a 92 gmc Sierra. I'm gonna keep carb on it so I can try to make it to the meet next month. I just replaced the starter it was long over due, sometimes it work other times it just spins the starter clutch. I finally added a fuel pressure regulator and after all this she dont want to idle unless she's on the yellow cam.

Before I swap the tbi, I want to drive it a little on the carb. It doesn't want to idle. Does anyone have any initial settings for a carter bbd carb. Its 78 year.

Alright so the van looks like it has a blown head gasket so I just ordered all the parts and ima tear into it on the 4th. I'm just gonna do the tbi swap then too. I got all the parts except for a knock sensor and temp and o2 sensor but since I'm gonna pull the head. I'll weld in the bung into the exhaust.

So in the meantime, I have gotten all the sensors and have finished trimming down the harness to everything I need but left enough on each wire I cut in case I wanted to add it on later. I still need to grab a lil check engine light to add but other than that she's done. I've tore into the engine and did the head gaskets, I dropped the head on the gasket and had to get a new felpro one but after that slip up she's all together except the manifold. I'm still cleaning it up to add all the sensors and modules. While I was pulling the exhaust. I went ahead and added a o2 bung. Autozone had to special order one so I grabbed a doorman help anti fouler, cut it in half and welded it in. Works perfect.
