    Externally they're the same. :) Internally the V8 version has a few more clutch plates, so it should last a long time behind a V6.

    the v8 version and the 4.3 version are identical in everyway, it was the 2.5 and 2.8 that got fewer clutches.

    the 4.3 has the same bellhousing pattern as a 350 so they will all work, just have to move the tranny crossmember
