1989 Camaro Engine Swap Help!

I'm decideing on a Engine Swap for my Camaro, It's a 1989 Camaro, 305 TBI, Question is, What is all required for a swap to a 350 or 383 stroker.
Will I have to change the TBI etc....
I know the 700r4 tranny wont hold, so probably gonna swap with a th350 or 400.
Any Thoughts?

There are lots of companies that sell mods for the TBI setup. Also, with the 700r4, you have a lower first gear ratio than the 350 or 400, so you have a good off the line advantage. Plus, if you want lower gears in the rear end, the overdrive will help on the gas milage. The 700r4 can be built to take lots of hp and abuse. Don't sell it short, its a good tranny when built up some.
