    '02 4.3 question?

    I just bought an '02 2 door auto 4.3 LS blazer yesterday and I'm already a day behind in my plans for it. What was the first year the 4.3 in the '02's came out (as far as head design). I'm looking for a long block I can gut and rebuild (forged internals, cam, port work on the heads, and some sort of forced induction) Seeing as how it'll get all new parts I was wanting to find the oldest long block I could but don't know how far back to look. Is it the same style vortec head from say '96, or have things changed since then. My knowledge only covers those engines with 2 more cylinders than what a 4.3 comes with:p: so any help on what year the 4.3 I have first debuted would really be helpfull.

    thats just to the thread I have here. I don't have any pics of it or anything. I may be able to get some, if someone was really interested in it. I do need to get rid of it though. I've got a 90 silverado in pieces that's taking up space, the '88 blocking that, and my "new" blazer behind that one. Too many projects so the least favorite one has to go!!!!!!
