this should not be too complicated. You will need the ecm and all of the woring for the engine from the tahoe. I would reccomend getting a purchased harness that eliminates all of the unnecessary stuff that your el camino will not need. You will need a higher pressure electric fuel pump and i am not sure what the ecm will think about not having the 4l60e trans to control, but you can always have the ecm programmed to not worry about the trans and speed sensor and all of that bs that you will not have i am assuming.

the 350 vortec is my favorite engine and should be awesome in your ride, or any ride. im sure i am forgetting some things but i dont think you will have too many problems doing this.
