the summit link for the manifold works and on it "suggested parts" you will see the Opti block off plate with timing position. IDK if it works for a 94 TC though so you may need to get a 95-96 LT1 timing cover

The balancer & hub depend on what accessory bracket you use from the donor car. get the hub/balancer made for that car model (camaro, Vette or B-body Impala, Caprice) so belt lines up with balancer & accessory's

Can any body tell me if the Holley TPS kit will work with any other carb?

Can you keep you wipers or do you have to cut them out?

The Op posted that the GMPP intake from summit can be used or any Gen 1 intake. do the gen 1 intakes match up re bolt pattern/angle?

I do not think a gen 1 intake will work. The water passages and flow are different on the LT1. There is no water neck or thermostat on the front of the intake nor any water in the intake at all.
The bolt pattern appears different

When doing a carb swap on the LT1 one can't you just use a $100 carburetor TPS to hook to the computer and still use your factory computer to control the 4L60e? Some one also told me the computer may also need a RPM signal from what ever ignition source you are using to make the factory computer work the 4L60e, rather than having to buy a $650 transmission controller. Is this information correct?

I have an LT1 that I want to put into a 1970 gmc truck. Does the balancer diameter matter because I have an 8" one in the garage. Also can you use headers from a gen 1 350? They are 1 5/8" headers. Another question about the steam crossover. Can I just tap it into the overflow reservoir line?
