I don't think so, but maybe someone here knows better. The Brazilians, who ran the 3rd generation Chevy six (230, 250, 292) into the 90's I think, designed a fuel injection system for it. Ive never seen one. Interesting stuff, though.

.
Fi Tech has a 2 barrel kit for 795, so not cheap at all given you'd probably need to swap intake at a minimum...

A 292 will handle more than a 1 barrell...I used to run a 390 Holley 4b on my 250.....

There were some one barrel tbi's that I have seen on some smaller cars....older cavaliers and such.

For your motor I would use a 305 or 350 tbi....i'm willing to bet that the fuel trims are pretty similar to yours.

I ran the 390 Holley for 25 years on a 292 bored .030-over [=296 CI]. This is on a '68 C/10 Stepside.
After a rebuild, I switched to an Edelbrock 1405, 500 CFM. ''New'' block was also bored thirty-over. The Carter AFB design, with a vacuum secondary is in no way overcarburated.
I used the same Offernhauser 4 Bbl intake on each engine, as well as Clifford headers.
Very happy with the performance. IMO it's better than the crate 350 in my '71 Jimmy.
