4L80-E in 71 Camaro

I'm sure this has been addressed on here before, but I searched and came up empty. I've managed to get hold of a "95" 4L80-E out of a GMC 3500 TWD Van that I'd like to install in the "71" Camaro I'm building. Right now the 454 has a Edelbrock carburetor but I'm intending to replace that with an EFI conversion kit(probably a FAST kit). I'm also looking into a Dakota Dash insert. While pulling the tranny out, I took all the transmission wiring I could find, and the factory ECU. My queston is, can I use the GM ECU to run this transmission, or do I need to/ should I, go with an aftermarket ECU/TCU. Thanks in advance, hope I didn't leave out anything.
