    Truth. And you don't need smog to get FI. It is also simple to plug and play most any of the modern LS engines. Especially if you have the $$ for all that blingy stuff.

    ill give someone my v8, th350 trans, nv3500 and anything else you can find at my house related to a carb'd v8 if someone wants to give me money to rebuild my LS motor and wire it up. lol

    either way, truck and motor look good. Keep us updated

    wiring it up is the easy part of the swap.

    i dont like a robot computer controlling my motor... good old fashioned mechanical is the way to go! less wires and sensors.. less to go wrong however that doesnt mean i wont be doing a ls swap in the future.. lol the look and feel off a carbed motor is timeless... simplicity is sometimes fool proof...

    it is funny when i call my dad and start trouble shooting an issue with my blazers and he starts asking about spark, fuel, timing. then I have to remind him there's a shit load of sensors that control all that now, not just points, plugs, wires, and pump.

    Yes the old design is much better to me. When those fuel injected trucks are sitting on the side road with a bad fuel pump and they have to drop the tank to fix it. It will take me about 15 minutes and a few wrenches to fix my fuel pump and it doesnt cost 287 dollars for the pump sending unit combo.
    Plus I took a fuel injected 4.3 out of my s10 pick up and replaced it with w 600 Edelbrock carbed 355 and got 25 mpg and only 23 mpg with the 4.3 fuel injection.

    Looking good. It's hard to beat the performance of the LS motors but they don't look as good as a carbed motor.
