    Quite a few have done the v8 swap. There's even a V8 conversion section you somehow managed to miss! :rolleyes:.

    Update:My avalanche was totaled by my ex-gf. My business is in ruins. I now plan on finishing the engine repairs to my Saturn, and sell it. Once I get the bills paid off, I'm going to fix my Blazer.
    History:I bought a 2001 saturn sc2, then a 2005 avanche 1500 2wd, then a '87 S10 blazer 2dr 2wd on 07/24/2010, and on 04/01/2011 a '84 s10 blazer 2dr 2wd V8 drag racer(sort of)

    do take into consideration a V8 is a considerable undertaking! Some of the guys on here make it sound like a cake walk, but thats because theyve been working on cars since they were kids and now are in their 30s and 40s with good tools and a nice area to work...

    But not the get your hopes down! It takes planning, research, and most of all money... Theres a thread in the V8 conversion area that ive been posting pics of my 96 in and answering questions...

    Don't forget patients. And why a budget? Because all the beer adds up and you need to make sure you have money to go to the store to get more. :D
