1984 Trans Am Engine Swap?

I have an 84 Trans Am that I am putting a 350 Jegs crate motor in.

My question is, the original engine was converted to noncomputer control, so everything for the computer was taken out, including the wire harness.

It had a B and M torque converter control on the dash that the previous owner installed.

Is that needed for this install?

My install is noncomputer controlled as well and has FITech fuel injection.

I shorted the power wire to the controller and burned it up, so a new one is 300 bucks.

It was the first start last night and was a success except for the b and m controller on the dash.

It's a task to clean up someone else's mess.

Thanks for your input.
