Hi I was wondering what all you need to do a 2.8 tbi to 4.3 vortec engine swap. Other than motor mounts and ignition parts what's all needed. I'm probably the only person that doesn't know but that's how it is I guess. Thanks for any help in advance..

Will any of the other drivetrain components take the torque? Certainly not the tranny . . transfer case, diff, I don't know.

My guess is that when you're done it's cost more $$$ than just finding a nice 4.3 to start with . . .

Do a search I posted the info from my swap somewhere. But you will not be able to use the 2.8 tranny because it uses a 60 degree bellhousing whereas a 4.3 uses a 90 degree bh like a gm v8. So you will need a tranny also to do the swap.
