i was just wondering how much are like lt1 camaro and vortec v8 truck motors selling for? from a junkyard or wherever is cheapest? i suspect its not any to cheap. the vortecs out of full size trucks should be readily available though. i am sure the tranny from one is expensive as well. plus i am sure you would need the computer as well. i bet a swap like that is mighty expensive. i would say the motor, computer, and tranny alone would be 3,500. if i ever did a v8 swap i think i would go FI prolly out of a full size chevy p/u. mainly because i drove an s-10 with a 93 lt1 in it. 82 s-10 completely re-done. new interior, paint, the works! 700r4 tranny. thing ran awesome. cleanest 82 i have ever seen and the swap was better then GM could have done it. had stock rear end with a posi unit. it was a hands full! slap shifter in it was not needed at all fast as he!! in drive. one day i vow my s-10 will get a FI v8 swap.
