motor swap

Ok, so i had a EFI 300 I6 installed in my truck before and now i have a carburated 460. What wires do i need to hook up to make this beast run? Has anybody done a efi-carb swap and ran into major problems? I dont no how to do wiring but if anyones got some HELPFUL pointers, u have my undivided attention

Truck is a 96 f150 & motor is a 78 460 ( e series if that matters) & i do still have the old engine wiring harness to plug into at the firewall..

You don't do wiring and your doing this??? better off ignoring the entire truck harness and just running the needed switches to get the 460 going.
