wiring harness questions

Postby markmitch [OP] » April 7th 2013, 9:55pm

what is the difference between the wiring harness for a TBI engine and a CPI engine anyone know? can a pcm from one plug into the other? Basically I want to know if someone wanted to put a TBI engine into a van with CPI can the wiring harness be used or does the harness have to be changed too?

Computer is different. Programming is different. Wiring is different.
TBI has 4 contacts for the fuel injectors. CPI has 2 wires.
