Post finally a motor

Ok Guys and Gals I just purchased my first engine and I want some opinions. First it is a 350 out of an 88 chevy 1500. It is Tbi. It ran real good and tonight I go pull it. Its coming with a 700r4 as well. The questions are: Do I have to have the computer to run the tbi if so can i buy the whole computer plus harness cheap somewhere? I can run it with a carb but is there other things I have to replace as well? I have heard I need a fuel pump? I plan on dropping it right into my 54 chevy so y'all wish me luck.

A friend of mine took a 350 from an '87 pick-up and put it in an '84 without any problems. He had to get a fuel pump for the higher pressure and took the wiring harness from the '87 and installed evrything in the '84.

You can use a different intake and use a carb if you wanted.

I didnt get the wiring from the donor truck so I think I will go with the carb and new air air intake. Will this give me more power for cheaper than purchasing a new computer and harness?
