    Here is the deal. a buddy of mine told me about a 94 Vortec 350 outta a truck, had it rebuilt .030 over and they put the wrong flexplate. So in turn it mucked up the crank. the guy took it out and has it sitting there, w/o the intake and FI, and crank is out. i havn't seen it yet and was just wondering if it is even worth it. at first i was planning on using the heads and playing w/ my motor that is already in the truck (also a fairly fresh checker rebuild 5-7K in 4 yrs) OR build the vortec. i dunno but $100 for anything nowadays is pretty good. i just dont want to blow my $ that i dont have a lot of.

    FYI, Its not a true vortec, the one with the heads you want are the 96 to 98 I believe.

    The vortec V8 didn't appear until 96. If it really is a vortec and they got the year wrong it's definately worth $100 if the heads and block are OK.

    $100 is a good deal if it has the desirable vortech heads. It will be easy to tell if the intake is off.

    if they are vortec heads the heads alone are worth about $300
