Looks good to me., but you'll still need to buy more parts to finish it.

Yes, 2G's is steep, but it's a direct swap. Buying a v8 would cause you to buy alot of others like a computer and wiring harness, it would cost well over 2 grand.

very nice 4.2 stroker. it would defenitely help you with torque issues. it might be steep on price but a driect swap.

I agree with the 5.0 swap.

Or what i plan to do which is buy a 94-98 V6 and swap it over to a 460/C6.

I have already done many 5.0 from 2.3 swaps but now want to do a BIG BLOCK swap.

If it were me id take 2,000 as far i could towards the 460/C6 swap.

But if thats not practical or completely out of the question a 5.0 swap would be the next on my list or even a 351 which could be one hell of a torque monster and have 500 HP on stock intenals with good fasteners.

Or just contact Robert Greene (RGR) and tell him what you need. For 2000 dollars you can work wonders on a v6

The GMKiller could you please remove some stuff from your sig its extremely to long
