Re: Anyone willing to help me with doin a motor swap?
I am new here. I just got a like new one owner, 1987 S-10 Blazer Tahoe edition, 2.8 V6, 4X4, with 61K original virgin unmolested, garage kept, senior citizen driven miles. It was from an estate sale from a dealer in Georgia. The paint (2 tone blue) is all original and super clean and the interior looks like it was almost not even sat in. The Engine compartment looks like it is new. It is a real survivor, I replaced the dried up speakers and put in new LED tail lights and LED reverse bulbs.
The power door locks need to be fixed. The Vacuum to the 4X4 needs to be fixed. There is a crease by the passenger side front wheel opening molding. This thing is mint BUT the 2.8 is worse than a slug. My daughters 4 cyl Hyundai is like a rocket ship compared to it.
It is too nice to mess it up and shoehorn a V8 swap in it. I would consider having someone that knows what they are doing put in the 2019 Chevrolet 4 cyl Silverado 310 Hp motor in it, if it can be easily done, or maybe the new Colorado small V6 Diesel or maybe a new 4.3 Vortec (they are like 285HP) in it. I love it, but if it can not be made to perform decent I will consider it bad $$$$ 10K +++ spent and it will be for sale.
If there is someone here that can take on the project and not marry it, pleeeeeeez call me, nine five four area code. Then four six one. Last is nine nine four zero.
