Should be no problem getting it to run, since the point of throttle body originally was to be able to use a carb intake manifold.
However, passing DEQ may be harder to do.
And you may have to use a variable potentiometer to adjust the O2 sensor readings so that the ignition works optimally. Although a 92 may not even have an O2 sensor or electronically controlled timing.
If you want to simplfy ignition as well, you can buy a self contained breakerless distributer. I recently put one on a Chevy engine in a boat for $225.

I want to locate the carburetor on my 1997 grand prix

um Im not sure you are going to have a carburator as i would suspect a the very least, Throttle body injection (TBI) or prob. port fuel injection (PFI). this will have a injector at each intake port near cyl .head in intake manifold and a throttle body(butterfly) where air comes in plentum.

If you turn the key to the on position and you hear the fuel pump run, does it run for longer then 5 seconds? If so then you are going to need to look at your fuel filter, if it stays running then you are going to need to look at your fuel regulator. You can also go to Auto Zone and buy a fuel pressure test kit or rent one, and check your fuel pressure on the fuel rails. Check for spark also, if you are low on spark then you are not going to fire, unless you dump more fuel then you need to into the throttle body.
