    Ok, here I go again.
    I'm swapping out my 350 TBI for a 454 TBI
    I have a 87 K5 Blazer with 60/70 diffs 350/ 700/203/205 doubler and 44 swampers.
    I was wondering if the harness from my doner truck a 87 2wd harness will plug into my fuse block without any issues as I sold mine with my motor:doah:
    Also I was wondering what is a good set of headers to run with the 454 and or what have you all been running for exhaust?
    Here are a couple pics of how the truck is sitting now.
    You may notice my front diff is tore apart as well.....
    replaced the o-rings in my ARB, swapping out the axles (going to Yukons inner/outer and 300m u-joints). I also removed my cross over as I'm going to be installing a full hydro steering set-up. I will add more pics of that as I progress.
    thanks in advance for the replys/ feedback and flaming:D

    did you get the axles and such from NWF or just the slugs?

    I bought my drive flanges from NWF, Bought my axles off a local 4x4 shop (they matched a price that a vendor on the Pirate board was selling them for.

    I'm also picking up my high steer arms from NWF, they are a really nice arm and the price is reasonable.

    good luck with the build, it is a sweet truck. As for the engine and harness question i would post up in the garage, more people will most likely view it and reply to it more.
