4.3 swap

Postby 82Gypsy » Wed Apr 19, 2017 6:52 pm

Would a 2002 4.3 from my wrecked Xtreme truck be the same engine as a 1996 S10 Blazer 4.3 ?
My parents have the Blazer and their engine went out and I want to give them my engine from my wrecked Xtreme.
1982 GMC S15 Gypsy - 383 / T-56 / 9''

1965 Chevelle Malibu SS - 383 / M-21 / 12 Bolt
I make engine noises when I post.

Should be same basic block etc.

Injection might be different though.

You might have to change a couple of sensors and add a temp sensor at the front of the engine which shouldn't be a problem since you'll have to use the intake from the 96 since it has an egr valve. You might be able to tune it out and use a block off plate, but you still need the 96 manifold for the extra temp sensor.

Edit..you'll need to change the oilpan also.
