Long story short: bought a vt cheap, did the head gasket, discovered gudgeon pin knock. Since I had a spare 305 chev laying around, I decided to do away with the V6 and chuck in the chev. I'll be sitting a T5 behind it, but we'll get to that later. Rather than buggering around with finding a firebird computer to suit the tpi engine (or other avenues regarding EFI), I've stripped the engine down and decided to keep it old school. HEI dizzy, 650 holley vacuum secondary, etc. etc. My quarrel is this... I don't need the computer to run the engine, but I need it for other vehicle accessories. As such, would you weed through the wiring looms and remove unnecessary wires? Would you sit the donk in, disregard the computer and hope it all works as is? Or would you disconnect the computer and hard wire in the rest of the system? I'm short on money, I'm not short on patience and resources. Therefore, I'm not interested in hearing your opinions on the (subjective) futility of the project. I'm posting this hoping someone might have some valued input regarding the VT system, and what they would do given the circumstances. I appreciate any advice given, thanks in advance.
