Re: s10 tbi 4.3 exhaust and intake question
You have the best 4.3L heads on your 1995 truck now. What little you would gain from the installation of 1996 - 2004 heads is not worth the trouble it takes to convert the intake manifold to the 1996 - 2004 bolt pattern.
Or not. The 96 and later Vortec heads will outflow those non Vortec heads any day. There is no need to convert the intake manifold as Edelbrock makes a carbureted manifold for Vortec heads, and all you would need to keep the TBI is an adapter plate.
