I know, I know why get rid of the TBI. I took a bet I could not take 2 84 Fiero damaged bodies and make an off road vehicle. Challenge Excepted. Due to the off-road nature I want to remove as much electronics as possible.

If you have an old intake and carb I will trade my my computer,harness, intake and TB. Everything is in full working order.

I am also willing to pay for an intake if you have one.

I would also be willing to purchase an adapter plate as well.

If you wish to go with a carburetor on a Duke engine you would have to go back to the manifolds used on those engines made in the late 1970's and early 1980's. There were four generations of Duke engines made before the Tech IV. Because of this, those manifolds and distributors probably won't fit the Tech IV Fiero Dukes. Beyond that, you will need a good fuel pressure regulator with a return or a new fuel pump.

The vehicle already has a racing fuel cell and Holley fuel pump with regulator and return line. I am just trying to track down an intake. They are not very common anymore. I have found a couple in Canada but the $500 Shipping is not worth the cost. I'm trying to track down something in the states.

I did a lot of research into this months ago. You're more likely to find what you need looking in non-GM cars actually, both AMC and Jeeps from the time used the duke and are easier to find than early 80s GM econo cars. You have to get it from an 80 to 83 duke so your options are very small. I found a carb intake and carb in an 82(?) AMC Spirit that worked. You'll also need an HEI distributor from the same engine and you'll need to make an alternate way to attach the throttle cable.

Ultimately I decided to stick to the TBI. In my opinion the electronics will handle off-roading just fine. I drive my 84 Fiero through water, snow, mud, cornfields, etc etc and never had an electronic fail. If you're going to offroad your real concern should be making the cooling system 100% and changing those front ball joints.
