Question drivetrain swap HELP!!

I have been considering laying some money down for a 360 crate engine for my 94 ram. I currently have a 318 and I would like to have a lot more power. I have been looking into the idea of tossing the computerized stuff all together and just going for old fashioned raw power. Crate engine, 727 torqueflight, all carburated with no a/c or emissions stuff. Anyone know what kind of a headache I am going to run into if I go with this concept? Are there odds and ends on the truck that are controlled by the computer that I will have problems with when I pull it. For example: can I just unhook the ABS? Someone please give me some insight on this.
