3.8 - 4.3

recently I decided to downsize from 350 chevy to 4.3 in my 38 dodge. The motor going in is 4.3, mid 90's TBI all computer contolled, I wanted it carberated so I pulled the intake and carb off 229. Ports are a little smaller but bolted up. Then I took 229 HEI, and thinking one engine is oddfire and the other is even fire I put magnetic pickup out of straight 6 HEI in the distributer. I also used the flex plate off 229 on 350 turbo tranny. Havent gotten it started yet but am beginning to doubt my thinking. Any imput ???
