    Just kinda kickin' around the idea of putting a big block in my Blazer in the faaaaaar future. Some of the things I was wondering about:
    How much cost was involved with all the little things included like brackets and stuff?
    Is a 502 crate motor worth the cost?
    What do you most like about the swap?
    Any negatives worth mentioning...besides the money?

    Klunky, you need to get the interior into your Blazer and come mudding with us! Today was AWESOME! I got video to prove it. A 502? You and I both man! See ya!

    I run one K5 with a BBC, one with a 455 Buick and a K30 with a BBC. Why would anyone want a SBC????? (smiley). It is really nice to have enough low end grunt to smoke 35" with very little effort. Try it you'll like!! I looked at the 502 for one of my K5's. It is a nice set up but a little too pricey for me.
