To keep the TBI EFI system, you will need to use a Vortec-specific TBI intake (shown below); earlier intakes have a different bolt patterns and will not bolt up to the Vortec heads and the ports don't match even if they did.

One other way around the TBI problem is to use a Vortec carburetor intake w/a TBI adapter (also shown below) to mount the TBI throttle body to the Vortec intake manifold.
