Building a very mild 350 TBI

I finally got a decent 350 to replace the tired 4.3 TBI in my 89 jimmy 4x4 (Not an F-body, but still same principle). It is a 355 (350 bored 30 over) out of a 1973 Monte Carlo that has stock heads and a mild cam (so mild it sounds stock).

-I need to change the intake to the TBI one, and I've heard I can use the 4.3 TB and just put in 5.7 injectors. Is this true?

-Could I use this cam, or should I swap out to a crane compucam?

-Should I use the stock 5.7 chip out of a full-size pickup, or custom? How adaptable is the stock chip? This engine feels and sounds comparable to a stock TBI 350, but I'm not positive.

-Can I use the Large Cap HEI distrbutor that's in the monte engine, or is there something different about them from carb to TBI?

I think that's it for now. Any help would be great, thanks!
