TPI swap

I've found an 88 IROC donor to pull a 5.7 TPI motor which Io want to put in to a 68 camaro.

1. I wondered if you guys could tell me what else I should grab while I'm pulling the motor.

2. Also if someone could point me in the direction of some info on how to complete the swap I would appreciate it.

You need the O2 sensor in the exhaust pipe, ECU, and wiring harness.

Sorry for the Acronym. It is the Engine Control Unit or computer in charge of the EFI. It will be a metal box about 8-10 inches square and will have large plug with a budle of wires going in it. I am not sure on those cars where it is at, but someone will probably chime in. If not, look under the dash possible under a panel of some sore to hide it. I think some are on the passenger side. If not there, look under the hood.

You will also need an electric fuel pump and a return line. If the newer tank will fit in your Gen I Camaro, then take the tank which should have the fuel pump in it and the plumbing for the return line The pressure regulator should be attached to the manifold some where. You are almost better off springing for a custom wiring harness instead of messing with the old wires and connectors that are getting brittle from all the eng compartment heat. Also there are a lot of wires bundled in that you will not need.
