1995 suburban engine swap

hey everyone we own a 1995 chevy suburban K1500 with a 5.7 350 stock.

This engine is a dog and my father is looking doing a performance upgrade.
I dont really want to rebuild the old one and we are looking at a crate engine provided from year one with vortec heads. The problem i have is,

he want to keep the same TBI system and EGR system. JEGS sells a TBI intake manifold with vortec head bolt pattern. This intake does have a spot for an EGR valve. i know i need a 1996 exhaust manifold with the threaded fitting and the pipe coming off it, from the pipe where do i hook it on the intake to get the exhaust gases to the EGR valve?

Also the stock engine has a knock sensor. can this be moved over on the new engine?

Thanks everyone for your help!

here is the link to the new engine

Well if it were me i would forget about the egr, but if you really want to keep it get a factory style air cleaner assembly and put a taller element in it. This way you have the egr hooked up but you'll still get good airflow through the taller air filter.

Something else I noticed: why do you want such high compression ratio in a suburban? You're going to have to run higher octane fuel which seems like a waste of money in a daily driver. Check this one out: http://www.jegs.com/i/Blueprint+Engi...50CT1/10002/-1

355 ci, 9.5: cr, 385 hp, 405 torque, and you can run it on 87 octane fuel. and you'll save around $1500 compared to the year one engine.
