    i'm just sayin he took out a perfectly good 4.3 and spent like 1500 on the motor and stuff he did(and just for the record i know very little about engines beside taking them out and putting them in, besides head gaskets i've never torn down a motor so dont make fun of what i say if i'm wrong):D the 4.3 he had would run like a mutha all day and everyone told him he should do a v8 to get more power and he got alittle more power but for the bucks he spent he said it wasn't worth it, but i'm not nocking anyone i know ur v8 could take my 4.3 but for maybe 20 mph faster through 1/4 isn't worth 2000-3000 for me... another reason is i'd kill myself with anything faster :)

    and as far as me helping him with install was just bolting up tranny and linkage....

    some performance parts for a 350 are cheaper than for 4.3 but alot of the parts can be used on both engines,plus if you truckalready has a 4.3 it will end up being cheaper to get to 300hp because you wont have to buy another engine with no core(the v8) and the mounts conversion headers,and accesories..to a level it is cheaper to build a 4.3 if your truck already has one, but after that level its cheaper for a 350 to produce high levels of horsepower
