    alright i've been thinking of putting fuel injection and the 700r in my blazer, which currently is a stock 350 with 350tranny.
    flipping through the local auto sales brochure i see an 89 sub for sale for $1995 at a local lot. the wife knows the owner of the lot so could get it for less (not sure how much less yet)

    here's the big ????
    would it be worth it to buy this sub swap over all i need, then resell the sub as a non injected (although running) burb?
    any input appreciated.
    oh and i'm already aware of the flaws of the 700r (heat). but i love that 1st gear and o.d. would be nice. nothing a good cooler can't take care of.

    if i were you i would go for the burb and swap it if it is 3/4 or 1 ton take the axles too...then put what you got in your blazer in the burb and sell it as a whole vehicle or for parts...there is a slight possibility you could break even...


    Have you driven OVER a Ford lately?
