I am building a 1950 chevy coupe to be driven on the street and drag raced on week ends with the use of NOS. This is my second 50 chevy coupe first one had 572ci merlin motor. This car is getting a 1988 TPI motor.
I am building the chassis now but have bought this motor and trans , need to know what I need to buy to make it run. wire harness,Fuel pump and so on.

I plan to make the NOS system stand alone,it will have it,s own fuel pump and fuel cell. I also plan to use the 1988 700r4 trans. The motor and trans are new rebuilds with good stuff. Motor has larger injectors,intake runners,throtle body. the trans has new valve body, race clutches and 2800 stall convt.

I am just admiring the work, and the forthought going into the project. I assume you will need the entire wiring harness to make it streetable as well as all the other safety features....you can be assured that I won't challenge you at a light. When I was getting my 235 lined out and running with hood off working on twin 1bbls carbs under street conditions a 23 roadster with a big V8 and 2 4bbls pulled up while I was reving mine ( to keep it from dying), I looked at him and said don't worry and he just chuckled, you can do the same at some point....Bill

Thanks Bill. I have only been on this project 2 months now. Im 65 years old and had 4 bypass heart surg last March, im doing good now and my goal is to have this at the drag strip in April, Run close to 20 miles per gal on the street and 6.90 at the strip. I can do the car wireing no problem just not up on any of this TPI stuff and was told this is the place to find info. NOT SO FAR.

How about some photos of the "first" 50 Coupe, and what happened with it? I think you'll probably be getting a whole lot more responses as the weekend winds down. This forum is very active compared to most of the others, just look at the stickies alone. I jump around between the 49-54 and tri-five forums, and this one seems to gather more support from it's members, more advice, and more encouragement. You've already posted pics, and everyone wants to see that. Can't wait to see more. Butch/56sedandelivery.

This is the first 50 coupe I built. about 8 years ago.2nd pic was the last win in that car. It has a 6.47 dial on it but would run a 6.00 all day long.

Wow! Impressive project. Helped a buddy do a 5.0 tpi into a 66 Studebaker Cruiser, turned out really nice. Since your doing a larger performance engine you'll need a fairly sophisticated ECM. I would jump over to this forum, these guys are all about EFI's and were a big help when we did the swap. Good luck.

This guy is putting an L98 out of an 88 vette with a 700r trans. He has great step by step of his install including the new wiring harness and computer hook up.

Seen this on the 58-60 forum. Hope it helps.
in case anyone else is looking for electronics, i found a guy that basically handles only computers, harnesses etc.
his email is
fantastic141@yahoo.com
reasonable prices too. your computer will have to be flashed as it will work on direct replacement only when you get it.

got a few more things done in last few days. A well for the fuel cell and the battery are now in place and have some of the roll bar done, I like the fact that if you pull up along side me you wont see the roll bar.
Thanks for looking and please comment good or bad.

What is that 'power adder'? It's the thingy behind the throttle body, right?

Looks good. Have one question. On the pic with the seat, is that going to be the way it is mounted to the floor?

Yes the seat is going to be mounted there, I have plates in the floor to make the floor stronger in that area. the belts will fasten to the roll cage, so thats what holds the driver.
Bob the cage and frame are hanging way down in these pic so that we could paint the dash,it will be up about 8 inches from there. I know it looks odd this way. when I jack the frame back up after puttinh in the headliner next week I will be makeing and installing the frount bars that go thru the dash to the frount frame.
