    do you need to beef up the suspension or frame when doing a 350 swap from 2.8?

    400 Transmission

    I was recently told that a 400 transmission into a blazer requires more foot pounds of torque to move the truck. Is this true? These people are saying that the 350 tranmission is faster and better.

    As far as suspension goes, I wanted to stiffen (sp?)
    up the front-end so I got intouch with Moog performance
    parts and told them what model truck I had, what I was
    doing (V8 swap), and what I was going to use the truck
    for (Friday night racer/Weekend toy). Below is the info.
    that they told me.

    1985 Chevy S10 original Coil spring #5660 rated @ 1538 Lbs.
    Suggested Coil spring Moog #5664 rated @ 1800 Lbs.

    i plan on putting a 350 in my blazer. if i go carbuerated and used a pressure regulator, are there any disadvatages to having one? also would i have to manually choke it or could i use a remote start on it?

    another question. what does 2 bolt main and 4 bolt main mean? is that just different tranny hookup possibillities? what do i need to make sure i have to use my 700r4? thanks for the help.

    2 bolt main and 4 bolt main is how many bolts there is that hold the main caps down that hold the crankshaft in the bottom end. some motors have four bolts to each main and some have two to each main. but the main caps on each end of the motor always have two its just the middle four caps that are different

    yes 4 is always better than two but if you only have one it still isnt bad just not as strong but i have seen some strong and fast two bolt mains. you can have a two bolt main made into a four bolt for $200 around here in tennessee i dont know about where you live

    factory 4 bolts are not always better than 2 bolts. Especially in the siamesed bore 400's. It is much better to get a 2 bolt block and have aftermarket 4 bolt caps installed and then re-bore the journals. I know of some SERIOUS engines that are only 2 bolts. I just watched a older Lightning with a '69 2 bold windsor block take 22psi and make over 700hp at the wheels. I also know of a 2 bolt 500++ big block making 1200hp on juice without problems. I've also seen guys split 4 bolt blocks in half with mild combos.

    When using the Corvette Radiator, you can use the 2.5L Radiator shroud/mounts! Thought I would add that in there!:bigthumb:
