4.3 Vortec to 350 Vortec swap??

Postby stocked [OP] » March 5th 2010, 6:50pm

I ran across a fairly cheap 350 vortec, 120k miles from a 95 Tahoe.. Now i remember reading back when i had a s10 that the 350 tbi and be swapped in place of the 4.3 tbi with minimal mods and just adding a few wires and maybe a little addition to some wires... that being said. What would go into swapping the vortec cousins? I want to still have my digi guages, and all that. But i also could get the V8 4l60e and normal 4wd t-case from the donor and swap them in too and then grab the TCCM from the tahoe to run the t-case Shift motor.. The guages and computer is all i'm worried about if i decided to do the swap.
