How hard would it be to swap the 4. Just make sure you dont cut the stock fuel lines too short. I don't mind running both sets of o2's, and all emissions stuff, and I'm sure I can get a newer Vortec even the V6 to run cleaner than my little carbureted 4 banger with 210,000 miles. It can be done, but it is a very in depth procedure. He doesn't have anything 5. Bigger is better dollar for dollar. Really , the best thing would be to get a truck with a v-8 already in it from the factory.
Right the whole kit for the 07, 5. Sorry for the probably dumb sounding questions guys, but I appreciate the help. Currently i have a 4. You can also convert the truck to an automatic - the choice is yours. And even if it is, you could just go the custom route and upgrade the whole cooling system like this guy did: The transmissions are almost the same, but the bell-housing is different, and someone correct me, I think certain years have a speed sensor or other additional sensors. So you just bolted up, and away you went? I believe this is most of the infomation I have on this swap, Ive been watching an engine harness on eBay for a month plus now but just cant bring myself to doing the swap on my 02.
Less shit to go wrong, and I honestly don't want any of that garbage. Either way I will need to update the computer to account for the new trans or engine Depending one which one I use. This minimal wiring change will make your V8 swap in your S10 or fullsize go much easier. And all 4x4 Trailblazers and Envoys had manual selection switches. Don't fret about the trans, thats actually the easiest part of the whole deal so far. It's perfectly doable and very easy if you skip going fuel injection. Lost anti-lock brakes and factory speedo, but whatever.
They don't give any exact power increase numbers, so not sure what to expect. I've heard the radiator's are different, but I'm not 100% sure on that issue. Unless you can find a cheapo donor, Id just buy a 5. I'm not looking for any more power than stock, so why would I need to change anything on the computer or harness? If any of you do a 96 or 97 swap and find out whether those wires are in different locations on those, if you send me a copy of the wiring diagrams I will be glad to post for everyone to use. I am running a 2001 engine and tranny from a Silverado with 1k miles. I'm sure this swap could be done for less than 30% of that. Other personal reasons are: 1.

I think it would do-able since, like was posted earlier, it was a factory option in these vehicles.
For me it all depends on what tranny I get. Rewire it all to be basic with switches and relays like the old school days for most of it, and use an aftermarket remote start system for the power locks. Is my stock steering really going to be a big problem with the 4. Yeah, I know it's strong as hell, but it's worn pretty well Is there an easier way to get a t-case that'll work in it? I bought two foot long steel braided fuel lines from summit as well as two male fittings and two female fittings. I almost did all 4. The roots style requires swapping the intake manifold out for one that come with the supercharger.
Hopefully they can spare the time to come and contribute to this thread. We recommend checking out for more information on the swap. I've been considering a swap for a long time, and when the old 4. Again, didn't even think about it. Suspension: Rancho Grand Wagoneer 2.
