  • As with any build, I have had a general idea of what I was going to do. I had the original TH350 & NP205 & a 350 crate engine with only 15K miles on it but the 6.0L came with 81K miles & a matched 2WD 4L65E for a deal I couldn't refuse so the 350 is coming out. I tried to sell the 4L65E so I could get a 4WD trans but no luck so I'm still thinking about what I am going to do about it. I will have to do some machine work I changes to the 205 to make a 4L80E work with it, I have a 700R4 from a 91 K5 that would bolt right up but the LS is a DBW so maybe I'll just send in the 4L65E in and have the rear shaft switched to 4WD...5 transmissions in the shop & not one really does it for the Blazer. I have the gearvenders over/under but the wheel base may be to short to use in in this one.
