I know this thread is now a few months old, but for what it's worth, I just got through a > 1 year journey getting that exact engine working my car. Kept the CCC system (if you know anything about me, you know I'm a huge ECM fan!)

I ran into all sorts of issues with the throttle and TV cable mounts due to the OEM bracket not fitting in with the require intake manifold. Check out this thread if you need help as to how to replace the bracket with an aftermarket one that bolts up to the carb. That too created a blockage issue which is all outlined in the thread. Had to take the bracket to a machine shop to have it bent so there was enough clearance for a fitting. Cheaper options were offered up in the forum thread, but I wanted "elegant" and "as close to as intended as possible" if you know what I mean...


Good luck with the remaining build!
