    Frustrated!!!

    Agh!! I'm so frustrated with my truck, I wish I had enough knowledge it would be getting the 350 treatment right now.. In the past 9 months, these are the parts it has recieved.. Front Brakes, 2 front rotors, Lower Ball Joints, cap, rotor, EGR, catlytic converter, cat back exhaust, 2 windshields, and now, the fuckin water pump broke 2 weeks after I got it back from inspection! :blowup: I swear I wish I lived close to someone that could teach me and help me do the 350 RIGHT NOW.. And speaking of 350, I go to look at this 88 dime today with 53,000 miles on it, rough body (straigt but rust on doors, and all the quarter panels, and rust thru on the inside where the kick panels are) and it the worst need of a paintjob, all the paint pretty much worn off.. well, I get there and it says "Engine : V8-350" I thought oh.. I was thining less than $1000 now im thinking somewhere around $2000, so the prick comes out and tells me he wants $5800 plus he'll throw in a Maaco paint job of the color of your choice! I laughed and asked him what engine it had, he said 84 camaro carbeurated and I laughed again.. I wish I could get a picture of this thing, someone wouldnt pay him $5800 if he was selling 2 identical trucks for that sum!!! but on a lighter note, my tweed came today, looks pretty nice so im going ot attempt to tweed my interior pieces I have off while my truck is in the shop. Wish me luck!

    well you could have save money and omitted the cats no-one needs those.

    and if you lived near me i would sell you a 400 complete balancer to flywheel and pan to carb and headers for $300

    and I'd even teach you how to install it and whatever else just cause I like your Bravada but you live to far away

    Aight man, here you go. Call up summit, and order all you need. I'll pick it up, and well have you doing AWD burn outs in no time, lol, J/k. You decide to do it, hollar. I'll help out. I've never done a AWD, or a EFI swap yet, but it will be a learning expericence. :bigthumb: How about an AWD LT1? Hmmm.... that sounds nice.

    how much did the pump cost and how much did it cost to have it installed? i went thru everything you did but in a matter of months, but without the windsheild problem or exhaust (however my exhaust did fall off but i put it back on.....), and then i had to get my u-joints replaced. real fun.

    gblang - Bad luck I guess with the windshields.. Broke the first one 2 weeks after I got the truck, and had it replaced because it was cracking all the way across, then 2 weeks before going into inspection it cracked again by a big rock on the road, but my buddy let me pass anyways, but next year it will have to get replaced, and just when i put my blazinlow banner on :(

    Blazer88FastNLo - well at least you like the Bravada!! I needed the cats to pass emissions, but thats the last time ill have to pass an emissions if my "bypass the odometer" plan works ;)

    ZZ4Blazer - Me, you, and John (s10blazed) are going to have to have a little get together next summer so we can set in motion "Project 350 AWD" you two have way more expertise than I it would take me months to finish a swap. But with your expertise, im sure it would be relatively smooth! And, i'd be indebited to ya, so whatever you'd need id be there (I have an unlimited availability to any type of sheet metal, great for shaving :D)

    4x4 - Water pump is like $25 or so, and its going to run my 50 for it to be installed.. but like I said, hopefully by this time next year ill be 350'in it down the road :bigthumb:
