    I have a 1988 camaro that has a 305 with a blown head gasket. I need to know what it will take to install a 350 with a tpi injection system?

    That pretty much sums it up.
    If you avoiding the blown head gasket repair in favor of the engine swap you may be getting yourself in for more than you bargained for. The head gasket is a fairly simple fix. Pull it, clean everything, have the head checked at a machine shop and put it back together.
    The engine swap will be much more involved. If its a 350 out of Camaro it will be the easiest swap, but still should take all of the weeked or more.
    Good luck with your project. Post up if you have some questions on either project.
