The first in the series is the Small Block Chev Tuned Port Fuel Injection System (ISBN 0 949398 01 2) published by Graffiti Publications. It is an idiot-proof guide to installing the entire GM TPI system, including the black box and wiring, sensors, actuators, controls and switches into Hot Rods, Street Machines, Kemps, 4WD, Jags and other conversions.

The preceding chapters of this manual gives a broad overview of the Tuned Port Electronic Fuel Injection System with information on parts interchangeability as well as information on some of the important differences between various year and model systems. The rest of this manual describes more specifically what is needed to adapt the TPI system and all its components to vehicles other than those in which it was factory installed.
The following pages attempts to assemble, in an organised manner, all the details of the various electrical connections, appropriate part numbers for replacement components and any other related information that will assist you in the adaptation process. All the information that follows, applies specifically to 86-89 TPI systems with a Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor (See Mass air flow sensor variations on page 12). Rather than just provide a few schematics, some installation notes and a few references, this document attempts to impart as much information as is practical on the individual circuits and components involved. The information should allow the average hot rodder to determine the exact final configuration and hook-up that will work best for an individual application.
If you are using a complete factory wiring harness that has been removed intact from the donor vehicle, you should find most of the connections listed in the following pages already in place. This will substantially simplify the rewiring process, and require you to merely thin out the wiring by removing unnecessary or unwanted wires, and make the few connections necessary to join the TPI wiring harness with your vehicle’s existing wiring.
