Cool. Should make about the same power as if you had ported the stock intake.

Fuel injectors both clogged was not worth replacing both at 110 each.

So you got the carb, intake and distributor for less than $220?

110 each for TBI injectors is too much.

REMAN TBI IJNECTOR: $30 BUX

You probably aren't going to have as much horsepower as possible with a Torker intake on stock cam/heads/exhaust. But it should be more than stock. A little anyway. Taker 'er to the track...see what it'll run!

That's pretty cheap! But injectors would have been cheaper. I just got some junkyard ones for my car for $6 each. That would have been $12 for your car.

That carb isn't a "double pumper", BTW.

Carb looks a little tired. I would rebuild it before I relied on it.

Taylor, you are being vary generous when you call that a "filter"

Jdog, please dont use that "filter" as is; you have zero filtering properties.

I'm suggesting a full on rebuild. Clean internals are way more important than a shiny outside. If you rebuild the carb, you will get a clean inside AND outside.

I'll see how it runs without the rebuild. But plan on rebuilding carb anyways. As for the air filter what do you suggest in terms of a better one seems I will have to cut a hole in the hood either way

AAAAHHH? Why?

Unless your goal is to modify the hood, there is no reason to cut a hole in the hood.

The 80 and 81s used a carb set up as you have, so the clearance is allready accounted for. The air cleaner in your photo is not (not) even remotely compatible.

Get something like Taylor suggests and put the Saws-all back in the box.

If you want to keep it EFI, you could do this. Your stock wiring & ecm will hook up & run it. The junkyards are full of tbi units, crossfire is basically the thing as a 2 barrel tbi.
