Default V8 swap help

Hey guys new user from Florida here.. my girlfriend of five year wants me to restore her blazer 2002 2wd ls
its currently on 31 tires with a 3 inch body lift

Currently I'm debating dropping in a 425hp (crank)
​​​​​​350ci i am going to purchase motor mount kit and header from my local speed shop.
but will I need to swap my oil pan on the 350 to something smaller?
Also it's now going to be carbureted now
How can I retain the function of the pcm and bcm to retain gauge accessories and the restraint system
my girlfriend is going to drive this for work daily with a small trailer. And eventually it will get suspension lift and 35s . I just want it to be safe because it drives all day thank you for your help
