4l60e into 79malibu with tpi

Here is my question. I am dropping in a 5.7 into a 79 malibu. The motor used to be a tpi. I am running an aftermarket standalone ecu that doesn't control the tranny. I can get a 4l60e cheap with the wiring, tc, and pcm. What will I need to do to get the tranny to work. I am going to make a nice cruiser with it and want the overdrive since it has a 4.11 posi. Also the car has all aftermarket mechanical gauges.

With the stand alone efi, you will need a stand alone controller for the trans.
