    I live in an emissions state. And have a 97 k1500 z71. Will this set a mil lamp because of carb vs furl injected? If so will O.E. manifold n injection work? Or will I need to get holly n or Fi tech to fit provided intake?

    Asked by: Hog n tx
    Unfortunately we do not perform any emissions tests on any of our engines here for state inspections. If you are going to switch from this setup we would recommend the aftermarket throttle body systems, a factory fuel injection system will not work on this engine.
