Default Gen 4 motor converting it to gen 3. ??

I have a 1993 z28 that had a 1998 harness and an ls1 . I just built a 416 out of an l99 block . The block has a 24 reluctor , I'm running cathedral heads and a 3 hole cam. What timing set and front timing cover do I need? And what other things am I going to have to convert on this block to run this motor with that wiring harness/computer?

Thanks guys! I wasn't really sure where to put this. Maybe there's a better sub forum.!?

Also I'm assuming im going to have to run an ls3 valley cover?

I also got the ls1 to ls3 cam/knock sensor harness adaptor
Would this be the timing set I'll need?

The valley cover has to match the block, so you'll need the late style which requires movement of the knock sensors to the outside of the block. That is the wrong timing set, you need a 1x upper gear and the late style front cover with cam sensor in it.

Default Msd6010?

Will the 6010 box work with the front cam sensor? Where to find gen4 covers?
