From EFI to carb on a 5.0?

All - I'm putting a 5.0 HO in my 46 Coupe. I have also decided that all of the wires, sensors, looms, etc. look like crap in an old car...sooooo I want to run a carb. I think all i need to do is the following:

rip all the wires off the engine
take the upper/lower EFI intakes off
stick on a RPM air gap intake with a Holley 650
get an MSD dizzy, ignition box, and coil
run the wires from the ignition to the dizzy, and dizzy to coil
throw in wires for the alt and starter
tune the carb until i can drive by a gas station without a sense of impending doom!

Is that about it?
