    hey guys i just picked up a 84 K5 that sucked some water in the motor during one of our off road adventures. the guy that owned it had to many sticks in the fire already and the bad misfortune prompted him to sell it to me. i had already been all over this thing helping him through out the build so i knew the shape of the rig.
    long story short im swapping a budget 5.3 into it and keeping the 700R4 and 208. hoping to not move anything from the motor back. i have did my research and this is what i have come up with for parts.

    dirty dingo motor mounts
    schoenfeld 1302ls headers
    flex plate spacer
    91 k5 gas tank
    97 C3500 fuel pump
    corvette filter/reg
    cut down harness
    bowtieoverdrives TV cable

    everything look ok so far? im going to start ordering tomorrow

    Subscribed, this is almost exactly the same swap I'm considering.

    In to see how it goes. I might be swapping mine in the near future. I might have an lq4 lined up so I think it would be similar.
