  • Will my Edelbrock AIR-GAP intake manifold and 600 cfm edelbrock carburetor fit this engine? 

    Asked by: Cobb42
    If your intake is for the older (86 and earlier) cylinder heads, your parts will work great with this engine.

    I have a 99 tahoe with the vortec 5.7. Will this work with the factory fuel injection or will I have to modify and swap some things over 

    Asked by: Jboogiefromthablock
    I would actually not recommend this engine for your Tahoe. I would recommend our part number BP38303CT, this engine is designed for the 96-00 TPI injection applications.

    I have a 1987 Monte Carlo SS. Will my original intake fit? Also does this engine have provisions for a mechanical fuel pump?

    Asked by: raybw
    Yes, your intake should fit on this engine and it has a provision to bolt on a mechanical fuel pump.

    I have a 1979 Chevy Camaro RS. It has a 305 engine. The car has A/C. Would this swap out with what i have now?

    Asked by: Mancliff
    This will bolt right in place of your 305. There should be no issues.

    I have an 85 El Camino conquista with a 305 I'll be swapping out. I can cannibalize the flywheel and edelbrach intake for this motor correct? This motor should drop right in once complete correct?

    Asked by: Mg1180
    Yes it would drop right in. You could use the intake but this engine uses Weighted Flexplate/Flywheel. Your engine would use a Non Weighted Flexplate/Flywheel.

    Was a stock intake used to get the 310 hp obtained in the description above? If not what intake set up was used?

    Asked by: Mg1180
    An Edelbrock or similar intake will be necessary for the 310hp rating.

    Will this work in a 1995 GMC K1500 XC with the factory throttle body and EGR setup? Or is there an EGR delte that can be bought to make it work?

    Asked by: MidnightRider
    You would need to do some modifications to make this work, you will need all of your EGR components from your current engine and the camshaft of this engine wont work well with the TBI set-up.

    Would this work in a 72 Nova with a TH 350 Tranny?

    Asked by: 3rdone
