    Thinking of putting my 96 yukon 350 vortec into my 87 blazer. Is this doable? How hard for a self taught guy who's done everything but an engine or tranny rebuild? THanks

    Have to get a different intake manifold, and prom chip. everything else should be good to go, but use 87 brackets and accessories.

    skip the over expensive Vortec TBI intake and go with a regular Vortec intake and use an adapter plate, much cheaper and better performance to boot.

    do you have emissions? if not, now would be a good time to eliminate AIR and EGR, they dont really hurt milage any by removing them, and they dont help it by keeping it, so long as you've got a good tune.
