    Cant answer all the questions because i never did a vortec conversion on a 350 tbi. First and cheapest to add some power is a throttle body spacer. A TBI is what they were meant for and are most effective on. As for your tranny you probably have the 700R4. It will hold up to a Vortec upgrade. A 700R4 was used in Corvettes. A Vortec Swap isnt going to be that much more on the tranny. Unless you have a god awful amount of miles on it and beat the hell out of it you will be fine.
