    I believe as long as you use the majority of your accessories from your motor it’s basically a direct bolt in. Ive not done this myself on on a tahoe but but ive put a newer lexus motor in an older camry and an older 81 dodge 318 into a newer 89 w250 pickup using all the wiring, Electronic fuel pump, etc from the 89. Just use everything off your motor and youll be alright inmo.
