v8 swap

  1. V8 Discussion
    Hello people I am in the planning stages of swapping a 5.7 into my 2000 extended cab. I am under the impression that the vortec swap is the “easiest” v8 swap and that all I will need is jtr v8 swap mounts, 2.8 frame mounts, jtr headers, and a 4.3 wiring harness. I’ll be able to use all...

    I got an 88 350 tbi that I’m going back to carbureted on. I was curious if I can put my vortec heads on without any issues? Or if the is issues what are they?

    I've got a 1996 S10 ZR2 with the 4.3 in it. I've been wanting to do a V8 swap for a while now and might have time and money for it this summer. Planning on doing it myself, with the help of a friend or two. But I am willing to have someone else to do it at a garage. I was wondering what engine...

    Howdy howdy. I’ve heard that swapping a 5.7 vortec into my 96 4.3 is a really easy swap (well as easy as swapping an engine gets) does anybody know what is the biggest cam I can throw into an l31 without needing a tune? I heard I can put an lt1 cam and get like 10-20 horsepower and around 20...

    Howdy, Ive finally decided what I want to do with my s10 and I want to lower and slap a 5.3 into it, I was hoping to build the stock transmission instead of pulling one out of a doner because this is my project truck and I am going to be adding more and more performance mods down the road. what...

    Looking at picking up a 2 bolt 350 (3970014) this weekend guy wants $100 and doesn’t know condition of it. Looking to put down 450-500 hp at the tires think a 2 bolt will handle it? Or what can I do to make sure I won’t have issues with the caps.

    Howdy howdy first post on the forum. Here is my question, does anybody know the parts interchangeability from a 96 gmc k1500 to a 96 s10? i plan on doing the v8 swap but i want to use as many parts as i can off of the k1500 because I got it for free but the only catch is that the transmission is...

    I will be swapping a 355 Small Block in my 99 Sonoma. Estimated at 320-350 HP with a mild tune. Using a 4l60e, and I know I'm going to need a new torque converter. But what kind of power can you put through a stock rear end. I know the 7.5s aren't known for the indestrucibility but would it be...
