    You order them from that link. That is were I got mine at. The pod even fit better than the pillar factory trim did.

    The easiest drop in radiator for the V-8 is a 87 corvette radiator available fairly cheap from JTR. Drops right into the lower 2.8 cradle and only needs a couple of straps made of 1/8" stock to sit on top of the end caps and use self-tappers to secure it to the support. This radiator also cools very good

    I'm using a radiator from a 68 Chevy II Nova with a V8(3 core). I didn't cut the bottom of the radiator core support either.

    Yes mine was sitting on the stock rubber pads with a long style reverse rotation water pump running a set of 4.3 accessory brackets and the vette radiator in the stock position with the JTR shroud. I had to go with a 1" spacer for the flex fan and it was a bitch because I had 5/8" between the fan and the radiator. It cooled well so I guess it was worth it.

    Ok I have read on this thread some, but want to get some input.


    I have a 1988 5 Speed 2.5 Blazer
    2 Door.

    The engine is still running fine, but I want a V8 swap.

    Questions.
    Could I go with just a crated small block V8 engine, ala ebay?

    What transmission should I pair with it?

    Can it be fuel injected or does it have to be carbed?

    Will a ford 9" rear bolt right in?

    thanks
