    I put a 6.2L into my '79 K10 for about $350-500 or so. But I put all new gaskets in the motor, new clutch, and some little things like new oil cooler lines... Probably put a little more than that into the motor now with rebuilt injectors and new glow plugs.

    I should also say that did not include the price of the motor or donor truck. I got that on an even trade for another truck.

    Including the motor and donor truck I ended up being into my swap for a little over $1500 US. It didn't start out being that much, but all the little crap I used off the donor ended up needing replacing. Hydroboost pump, alternator, starter, batteries, GP relay, battery cables, etc etc.

    I think I might use my old 84 cucv m1009 just might come apart for this one. The wiring in the m1009 is so messed up and i cant figure it out for the life of me. It only has 37k on it. only asking 1800 for it and nobody wants it so i might as well.


    Can i use the old lines in the 89 or will i need new ones? Also i not to good with wiring. What am i going to be in for or is it no big deal?

    Thanks guys, i should have done a search this was asked before i think.
