This is a pretty big job, but not as bad as trying to add fuel injection to a car that came with a carb. Pull out the injected engine along with the on-board computer and harness. It might have value to someone in the used parts business. Install the carbureted engine with the factory mounts. You'll need a switched 12V source for the hot side of the coil, electric choke (if applicable), and the exciter wire on the alternator. You'll need constant 12V for the big post on the starter. You'll need a 12 guage wire connected from the other two terminals on the alternator to the big post on the starter solenoid. You'll need a wire from the start circuit of the ignition switch to the inside post on the starter solenoid. You'll either need a mechanical fan attached to the water pump or an electric fan wired to a thermostat set to come on above 180 degrees. If any of the lights or other 12V accessories don't work as a result of removing the power source, you'll need to provide a power source. Take care to note if the power source is available all the time or only when the ignition switch is on. If the transmission requires input from the on-board computer, you might be able to search the aftermarket for a solution. Summit Racing Equipment can be very helpful in this area. I've probably forgot one or more things that would need to be dealt with individually. Good luck.

How do you install the throttle position sensor on a 83' caprice?

Assuming you have a 305 V8 with a Rochester Quadrajet carb. You will have to pull the carb, and tear it apart. The TPS sits in a groove in the front of the carb body. Buy a carb rebuild kit, watch the Youtube videos on rebuilding quadrajets, and do it. I just rebuilt my carb over the weekend. My 83 Caprice now runs great.

How do you swap from fuel injection to carb on a 88 Camaro?

Change the intake manifold and fuel pump. Install the carb, and you're done. I'd recommend against the swap if there isn't anything seriously wrong with the fuel injection though. Electronic fuel injection (especially port injection like the 88 Camaro has) is superior to carburetors in every conceivable way. Better performance, better mileage, etc. If you are building up the engine, you would be better off remapping the fuel table of the EFI to match what you have done to the engine than you would be bolting a carb on it.

1991 5.7 police package car should have throttle body injection - fuel filter located in passenger side frame rail. If it is a carb, its probably a quadrajet, just remove the fuel line where is screws into the carb, and there will be a little fuel filter. Should also be another along the fuel line somewhere.
