383 carb swap to 4l60e

hi everyone this is my first post.
I am swapping a 383 carb stroker into my 07 silverado that has a 4l60e (& originally a 4.3l)
now i have a TPS adapter purchased for my holley and i was told the entire serpentine setup will transfer over from the old 4.3l
also told to remove the original purple wire from my dist. and attach it to the HEI tach slot for RPM input.
most/if not all of my sensors i can transfer over

my question is on the bellhousing/flexplate. im guessing the original flexplate will not match but i havent read anything on the bellhousing???
also what flexplate can be used to adapt to the tq convert?

thanks in advance
-Brad

bell housing should match up, chevy v8's havent changed in that aspect for the last 40 years. unless you have an ls, i'm not familiar with those. have you thought about a stand alone controller from tci? 800 bucks but you can program your own shift points and line pressures. just a thought. good luck sir

i did look at the stand alone controllers but idk how long my 4l60e is going to last behind it so i may be going with a th400 or a donor 4l80e with tcu later on

well got everything all hooked up (TPS + CTS) and driving but I think it is in limp mode, seems to only start out in second and wont go into overdrive. I wired up the hei to the original white for the tach signal from my old coil like the wiring diagram said but still got nothing to the tachometer. could having no crank position sensor cause the tach signal to not properly run through the computer? Im hoping thats the main reason for the trans.

if so do they make a CPS adapter to mount one on a gen 1 block?

Looks like about $600 for those, TBI makes one with a display for $550 I may have to get
Thanks
