    New Guy From PA

    Hi, I'm Tom and I just joined the site. I'm mainly an S-10 guy and that's the reason I joined the site. I'm in the middle of doing a 5.3V8 swap in my '98 dime (originally a 4cyl) and I'm thinking of ripping the engine back out and going with a 4.3V6.

    The weight penalty of the 5.3 with an auto transmission is huge and I just can't justify it. I just got a '90-'93 4.3 crate engine for $100 and an NV3500 for free, so I think I'm going to get rid of the V8.

    I'm hoping I can swap some parts and use a factory computer with hptuners to run the older block. Slap in a cam, some Vortecs, and a marine intake. Should make most of the power of the V8 and be much lighter and easier to install.

    Wish me luck

    -Tom

    P.S. Here's a pic. I just traded in the blue truck and the white Blazer is a friend's and now has a SFA. The black truck is getting the engine swap.
