There's a GMPP intake p/n 24502592 that allows you to bolt on a carb to the LT1 engine. With it, you can opt out (haha) of using the OptiSpark ignition.

Use the search function here and google for much more.

EDIT- I just saw you said other than the intake and distributor, so I guess this post was of no help.

No changes needed to the heads.

What is wrong w/keeping the EFI?

Id find out whats wrong with the fuel injection and fix it. I am wanting to go the opposite direction and get away from the carburetors on my old engines. Ive got a 79 C10 with a carbed 454 and TH400 that id love to swap TBI and a 4L80E into.
