Family vacation - what parts shall I buy?

Hi all,

Barring more Covid restrictions or infections, we're booked to go to the West Coast in April. I intend to buy some spare parts and bring them back to the UK for our Airstream 1991 250 with 4L80E and TBI set-up.

If you had to buy a few things, what would you invest in?

thanks in advance

Nick

Hey Nick welcome to the states, hope y'all have a great time!

If you looking at things you can pack in your suit case, here is some I would think will work.

Fuel filters, inline and fuel pump sock.
Fuel pump
Fuel injectors as well the throttle body rebuild kit, throttle position sensor, Idle air control
ECM
Distributor cap, rotor, pickup coil, wires and plugs
Transmission filter
LED lights?

Just a few things that come to mind!

Not in the UK, we typically have to wait 2-3weeks and pay shipping and duty to even get something as simple as an oil filter or spark plugs!
