Can a 1994 4l60e work behind a carburated engine

i have an obd1 4l60e with the harness and the computer and am asking what it might take to run it behind a carbed v8. Which sensors would need to be put on? Or can i bypass the sensors with a specific resistance value to trick the computer into thinking the engine is running right. just a thought any input helps thanx charlie

you need throttle position, TPS and engine vacuum or MAP. I have seen this done before, there is a company that makes a universal add on TPS. You will also need the vehicle speed sensor which is in the trans tailhousing.

What i'm doing is a v8 into a 94 s10 blazer frame and I have all the stock blazer parts so from what you are saying I need to put the 4.3l map sensor and tps sensor onto the v8 correct? or do i need a 5.7l map sensor?

I think you want to use the manual lever position sensor as well.
Quite probably you will need the Mass air flow sensor,if it runs one. I believe engine load is calculated by that and also shift points as well.

MAP sensors are probably the same. latech is right about the shifter position indicator too. Did the Blazer have a MAF?
