'01 4.3 into an '85 replacing 2.8: questions
I am looking at a very very clean, i believe a 2001 4.3 vortec engine for 500 bucks.
I've got a standard bellhousing 700r4 that I will need to rebuild and get a new converter for.
As far as the engine, I'm not sure what all I am going to need for it and any help would GREATLY be appreciated as I am on a short time limit, BUT, I will in the mean time search for more answers.
I will need an Edelbrock carb manifold, but which one?
I will need a flywheel, I think?
Will I need new exhaust from the manifold down the the cat?
Will my hei distributor work?
Any frame work for the motor mounts?
1985 GMC S-15 Gypsy ext cab.
3.4l, Edelbrock intake, a 4.3l throttle body controlled by an '88 TBI ECM. 700R4 with 3.73 rear. Real time tuning using a CF-30 Toughbook with a Moates Ostrich 2 emulator.
