Amc 360 junkyard tbi?

Does anybody have a link to a junkyard tbi thread? I'm curious about it but can't seem to find a thread dedicated to it using the search. Im sure there are multiple threads on here dedicated to it. I just want to know what all is involved in it.

I used a writeup on ih8mud when I did a junkyard tbi swap on my caprice several years back

What do you want to know?

I'd like to find a full write up. I'm really interested in doing this and from what I've read it doesn't seem too difficult. I just want to find out if i would be jumping into a project I can't handle. I'm a bit of a noob, but i'm taking classes. I've looked into the howell and Affordable fuel injection setups and they seem to just be the same thing as the junkyard swaps but all the parts are already gathered for you, so i'd hate to pay an extra $900+ just for someone to do a little leg work for me. Is there some kind of adapter plate that mates up to where the carb bolts to the intake?

I made my adapter and I'm sure you can too

It's not a hard swap, if you understand anything about wiring you can weed the TBI harness down to appx a half dozen wires

The stock 7747 ecu and prom from 350 tbi trucks is fairly lenient and can support stock cammed engines + - 50ci with at most a little fuel pressure tweaking.

What the Howell kit offers over junkyard is C.A.R.B. Certification if that's important to you.

I'm not too worried about any certifications. i'm in Indiana and I don't have to pass any tests or anything. I just want the jeep to start with some sort of reliability and be able to climb hills without sputtering.
