EFI TO CARB

heres what i have:
a 351W bored .030" over, decked to .004" polished crank and rods, full ARP bolt and stud kit, Comp Thumpr Cam, World Products 210 Iron Heads fully ported 9.5:1 Compression Ratio, Weiand Stealth Intake, Edelbrock 750 Carb. This engine is currently sitting in my 1990 Ford F150 that originally came with a 5.0 efi. I would like to run my set up off of my factory fuel pumps in the tanks (dual tanks) so i realize i would need a fuel pressure regulator as well as a distributor. so i picked these to do the job :http://www.summitracing.com/parts/MAA-4309/ and http://www.summitracing.com/parts/MAA-8555401/ Now heres what im worried about... How do i make this run? what can i do take out for wiring if any? can i pull the ecu or will it need to stay in the truck? do i just leave it all in and pull the check engine bulb? can i use my factory gauges? will i still be able to choose what tank i can use?. any and all comments will be much appriciated as im having a very hard time finding the answers.

PS. No i am not staying with EFI. Please dont make this another carb vs. efi thread. i know the benifits of both and ive made up my mind.

with the hei ignition just a ignition feed,and for thpumps just run a relay fed power circuit,you can make your own eng harness as you will only need ign feed,temp,oil press.
