    Everything!

    Intake (all of it including the filter housing)
    Sensors
    Wire Harness
    Computer
    manifolds (w/ a short section of down pipe left on them)
    Block
    Intake Manifold
    Dist.
    Accessories with brackets
    Transmission (why not?)

    On a 86 there is no VATS or I would say take the steering column

    Ok, If you have the TBI most of the sensors are the same, ESC, water temp, TPS, IAC, oil press etc. The distributor is the same. They both use a single 02 sensor, so u don't need the exhaust manifolds. You'll need the in tank fuel pump. Route the fuel lines to the front of the block. You'll need a the throttle body, plenum, intake, injectors, fuel rail, computer, and wiring harness. A custom upper radiator hose, throttle cable. Use a tranny TV cable from the camaro. That's all I can think of for now.
