    Hey everyone i have a chance to get a rebuilt 396 for 800 bucks the only problem with it is a lifter tapping. (its in another blazer which i drove and i thought is ran fine) i was wondering what all is involved in switching from a small block 350 to a big block(396) i have an 84 blazer with a turbo 350 tranny what all can I use off the 350 for the big block and what needs modified/changed (engine mounts, hoses, etc.) thanks for all the help in advance!! chris

    The 396 will drop right in. Get the motor mounts with the 396 if you can as it's the only thing that is sometimes different. I helped my neighbor drop a 454 into a 305'd Monte Carlo and all we had to do was get big block motor mounts and it drops right in and bolts up.
