Default GM EFI... long shot but.....

just thought I'd ask if anybody knew...

My coworker has an '88 Chevy truck, 350 automatic. The previous owner of the truck took out the fuel injected engine (maybe blew it up? dunno, truck has 190k) and replaced it with an older carb'd engine.

Problem is, the carb is way too big and somebody used the carb on a racing engine and took the whole butterfly out so now it has no choke. Brilliant, too bad it's a street truck and Indiana is cold in the winter. He'd prefer fuel injection.

I have a complete '93 GMC van, 350 that threw a rod. Will the '93 EFI setup work on the older engine? Are the computers the same? I think the truck wiring is intact except the engine harness, would the van harness work? Is the '93 computer the same as the '88?

Any info? I just need a starting point...
'08 Cobalt LS XFE - 2.2l, 5spd, 35mpg

'97 Dakota Sport - Club Cab, 4x4, 5.2l, 5spd, 3.92's, 3" body lift, 33x12.5 15 Cooper Discoverer S/T's

I don't know if the harnesses will swap (due to the position of the computer). But I'm almost positive the engines were the same (L05) So, yes, the parts would swap.
Mine might be a POS, but I like it.
