    Oooh! Oooh! Cool! But $329? Yikes! [​IMG] Plus gotta buy other parts to make it work? [​IMG] I wonder if you need a chip to make it work right with the stock setup?

    if you got to buy all the extra bells and whistles to make it
    work I don't see the benefit except the all mighty dollar we work hard for going into their pocket.might as well build a
    street rod.

    The intake manifold, exhaust manifold, and egr tube part numbers are correct. Here's some more parts you will need:

    EGR Fitting GM P/N 12552329
    Vacuum Controlled EGR Valve GM PN 17052693

    Has anyone actually done this conversion?

    I'd like to see someone come out with a kit that includes the Vortec heads, the intake and associated bit and pieces and a chip to make it work on top of the slug 350 under the hood of our '94 Suburban. Oh yeah, a little more cam to with the kit would just be awesome. [​IMG]
