Vortec 350 Build

I recently started a different thread about a 327 I was thinking of rebuilding, but the topic diverted to so many discussions, I figured I would start a new thread and try to stay focused on topic.

I'm considering building an engine for my 67 Camaro and am interested in a Vortec 350. I understand they came stock in something like 96-99 trucks.

One possibility is to acquire a complete engine/transmission/computer etc or a doner vehicle with low mileage that I can transplant the entire setup including the EFI into my car. I'm not sure I want to get that involved with wiring and fuel systems, but this approach would be very fuel efficient.

What I'm leaning towards, is to start with a basic vortec longblock, and then add my own aftermarket intake and carb.

In either case I need input on what cams to consider, or if I go carb, what intake manifolds should I look at. I have an existing Edelbrock 1406 carb I could use.

Will the Vortec need any motor mount adapters to bolt it in my 67?

I'm sure I will have more questions, but this should get the thread started.
Thanks
