So I had an engine fire in my 1977 Pontiac Phoenix last summer the main damage was the wire harness and the carbuerator. Soon after I found a good running 96 C1500 with a 4.3L for below scrap price. My thought was "if I have to rewire it, why not have fuel injection and overdrive trans", expecially since it wont cost me much since I can get my $ back in the scraps.

What I am looking for is any advice on installing a SFI engine into a vehicle with no computer controls at all. I plan to pull the engine, trans, rear end, driveshaft, fuse block, relay center, wire harnesses, and pcm and I would like to know if there is anything else that I will need to keep form the truck.

Hopefully some one here has done something similar and is willing to share some hard earned wisdom. Thanks
