    Edelbrock makes a manifold for generation 1 engines for use with carburetor. Convert your distributor to 4 pin ICM or use an 1985 or earlier distributor that is not computer controlled.

        I'm also interested in upgrading the heads and cam. I see articles that talk about aluminum heads and how much better they breathe but also get the impression that they will not work on a old school carbureted set up. is this correct?

          Yes that is correct. There are no after market intake manifolds for the aluminum heads that accept carberators.

              Old thread, but just FYI you can use an intake manifold from a TBI-equipped S-10 or Isuzu 2.8, or from an Isuzu 3.1/FWD GM Minivan 3.1, and an inexpensive adapter that bolts to the TBI intake for use with a Holley 2-bbl carb. Here's a site I found selling this adapter:
