    Ok I want to swap my 4.3 for a 5.7 ok so my question is how to set up the ecm if I want to throw an intake manifold and a carburator? And will my gauges still work?

    Pretty vague request. Digital or analog gauges. tpi,lt1,ls1.... All 5.7s -- very different installation issues.

    Not sure why you would want to go back in time and run a carb, if the vehicle is going to be driven much.

    distributer / ignition-- if you are converting an efi style motor to carb the ignitions can be a major issue.

    700R4 Tranny will be OK but 4L60e would require an expensive external controller.
