    Do you already have the motor, what are you doing for a tranny, and are you staying fuel injected?
    I think Painless Wiring has a few harnesses, but you might want to look into picking up a wrecked F-body to use as a donor

    here's the pan you will need, motor and trans mounts. and nice headers.
    you can use the stock harness to the computer but from computer to the car harness ignition ect painless makes one for that. if you do go carbed, painless makes one for that also. which is color coded and from what i hear very easy to do.

    If you use the full F-body harness with the bcm (body control module) you could use the stock F-body gauges and fuel system (if you wanted to) then just make up the new fuel line from your tank to the motor... I'd strip everything off that F-body I could lol

    Went you get it all together you can have the computer tuned to match your rearend ratio and tire size.

    I'd love to see pics!
