I have a 1994 Chevy K1500 extended cab with a new 350 long block the Chevy Dealer put in after they ruined the my engine changing the intake gasket. I'm wondering if I can put this engine in a newer Chevy K1500 with a bad 350. I would like to have a extended cab with back doors or a 4 door pickup. If I can, what year can I go up to? What will I have to swap on the engine? Thanks for any help!
that really depends on the amount of work you can do to switch things over and the EPA regulations in your area. 94 has a throttle body fuel injection. If you are wondering how new you can go you should contact a wrecking yard in your area about what years are you able to do a drop in.
1996 they went away from the throttle body injection system. It gets very complicated if you start to change to a newer injector system.
It could be cheaper and easier to buy a truck that has everything you want and sell your old truck with the new engine. Just a thought
