Hello, welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is*****'m a Certified Auto Technician with 30+ years experience. I will do my best to assist you. please keep in mind that I may need to ask questions of you before I can answer. When you reply please feel free to add as much detailed information as possible pertaining to your concern.

To make the 91 engine work in the 92 chassis, did you swap in the ECM from the 91 into the 92? 91 is TBI 92 is MPI. What did you do about the fuel injection differences??

Keep me posted...

Thank you,
