Chevy 5.7 Vortec timing

I'm in the proccess of switching out my Chevy 5.0 Vortec (old and tired) for a fresh Chevy 5.7 Vortec. I can't seem to find any timing information for these engines. I know that the spark is computer controlled, but there is still a distributor that needs to be attended to. How do you set initial timing so the computer can find the mark? Thanks
