Coolant bypass Vortec "880" block

I have a Vortec "880" block that I would like to use in my '95 TBI 350 truck.

The block in my truck is a "880" casting also but,it has a coolant bypass hole where the water pump bolts on the passenger side.

The Vortec block does not have this hole. How can i use this block with the factory TBI waterpump,intake,etc?
