88 350 to 98 vortec 454 swap

i resently got ahold of a 98 vortec 454 and i plan to drop it where my old burnt out 350 used to sit in my 88 c1500 pickup. No electronics just raw power. Can anyone inform my what to watch out for , or what problems im goin to run into. Also where can i find an intec manifold for a vortec 454 carburated? Also on the surpentine belt all i plan on running is the alternator, waterpump, and powersteering pump, is this ok? Last and not least, what are some good inexpensive combinations i can bolt on to get more power? Its not my everday driver so im not worried about gas. for example, a good intake\carb\cam combination, distributor.. the motor is already put together, i just gotta add the bolt ons. any type of info toward this subject will be greatly appreciated.
