    My stepson just bought a 1994 Chevrolet Suburban and it says it has a 5.7L (350) EFI V8 engine but when he looked it had a carburetor, not being familar with chevys I was under the assumption that EFI meant it had a throttle body. Can anyone clarify this please. Thanks

    94 was TBI FI. it has 2 injectors in the throttle body unlike the 96 that has 8 different injectors located somewhere other than in the throttle body. it is possible someone has taken off the throttle body injection and went back with a carb. if this be the case, it was probably because they couldnt solve a problem and the only way out was to go with a carb setup.
