i shit you not i have no idea what vacuum hoses are and if gas is contaminated more then likely the cars been from one mechanic to another pretty much in storage 1st mechanic held it hostage for 6 months and dedicated only 5 hours label according to documented paper work

I used an 87 intake and modded Doghouse to run a stock IC on my car before converting . I will look to see if I can find the directions / Parts list

I would get the your current set up running correctly first before attempting any conversion . You need to get a scan master if you do not already

the first thing I did when I got my 85 was 86-87 ecm with 60 injectors chip from Eric at turbotweak translator with ls1 maf 86-87 coilpacks and module. and make sure you gas is clean and fuel pump I also changed my crank sensor to 86-87 that's cause I wasn't getting injector pulse .if you do the crank sensor the wires are different think I had gotten a plug from caspers electronic car runs real good.the motor had been rebuild I just brought it up to date.
