    to make my point i paid 1580 for a brand new never been cranked gm crate motor (a 350) with 250 horses stock and lets see the price of a 4.3 sissy v6. and they have like what 190 or so horses stock. they are around 1999 from gm. so i think you shouldnt post stupid thing, and you can do just as much stupid shit in a 4.3 blazer in the rain as in a 350'd blazer. each will roast the tires just one will doit a little more. so there thats why i have a 350 for my blazer its cheaper and will be a whole lot cooler


    ps. the 1580 price included tax and the 1999 for the 4.3 didnt so i saved a bunch

    Supernova, I'm looking to do a V8 swap in the near future... Just wondeirng where you got yours (ie dealer, connection with a friend, etc)... sorry this is a little off topic, but I don't think anyone will care seeing as what the original post was about.

    Thanks,

    I call bullshit on your whole post.There is no way you did all that to 4.3 engine plus rebuilt the 700r4 for under $1000.00.:bs:

    hey 85 w/ 4WD i got mine from a local gm dealer if you go there yourself you will probably pay a few dollar more and a core charge but go here www.sdpc2000.com they are the best place if you cant find a local place. but check with gm first all teh specs and shit to my motor are in my sig. and yea you didnt do all that for under a grand, and how much did you spend or your original truck/ motor b/c i bet i still have more ponies than you for less . for what you can build a good 4.3 (which i know it can be done) i could have like a 600 horse v8 . no one ever said 4.3 are junk its just a 350 is a better starting place for performance(and its something a little more different than a 4.3)

    unless you got used parts for free or stole them or whatever it wasnt cheap theres a reason its cheaper to build a 350 so many people do it that it lowers the price not as many people build 4.3's so the parts themselves cost more
