ok what engine is that?
That's a basic first generation engine with swirl port heads. 1993 is not Vortec (check wikipedia). Beyond that you can tell by the valve covers and the old-fashioned/ugly placement of the exhaust ports. The LT1 (2nd gen) looks the same but has never been installed in a truck from the factory. Plus the LT1 has a mini-ram intake and no distributor.

you lucked out pretty good with those finds or steals whatever you want to call it. if you didnt figure out the wiring harness yet. try using mitchell on-demand (if available) or buy a chiltons book on the truck you got the engine/trans from. good luck...........

That thing in the last pic is your MAP sensor. Since your putting a whole new engine and stuff in anyway, you dont need that anymore.
