    it should be a vortec. the vortecs have a tubular top intake and may have a cover in the middle that says "vortec". check the floor for rust and the cab corners also.

    for 1000 sounds like a good deal /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif good luck /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    The CPI Vortec engine isn't all its cracked up to be. It does make more power over the TBI (195hp vs. 160hp) but there's problems with the injector module and carbon build-up in the intake - not to mention the electronic EGR.

    The TBI engines are less hassle. The 'real' Vortec (SFI)started in '96.
