Here is the deal. a buddy of mine told me about a 94 Vortec 350 outta a truck, had it rebuilt .030 over and they put the wrong flexplate. So in turn it mucked up the crank. the guy took it out and has it sitting there, w/o the intake and FI, and crank is out. i havn't seen it yet and was just wondering if it is even worth it. at first i was planning on using the heads and playing w/ my motor that is already in the truck (also a fairly fresh checker rebuild 5-7K in 4 yrs) OR build the vortec. i dunno but $100 for anything nowadays is pretty good. i just dont want to blow my $ that i dont have a lot of.
