    Are the indentify numbers or JEGS part number on the block and where 

    Asked by: Glennhope1
    This is the Blueprint part number and they would normally be on a tag on the engine.

    Would this engine work in a 1997 k1500. If so what all would I need? Is my transmission (4l60e) going to be an issue? My engine is TBi , would this affect my computer?                                     Thanks in advance.

    Asked by: John6891
    This will bolt in and work with your transmission. You will have to remove any of the TBI wiring as this uses a carburetor.

    This can't be paired to a 700r4 transmission can it?

    Asked by: Chevy87
    Yes, you can use a 700R4 with this engine. You will need some additional components to connect it properly.

    I live in an emissions state. And have a 97 k1500 z71. Will this set a mil lamp because of carb vs furl injected? If so will O.E. manifold n injection work? Or will I need to get holly n or Fi tech to fit provided intake?

    Asked by: Hog n tx
    Unfortunately we do not perform any emissions tests on any of our engines here for state inspections. If you are going to switch from this setup we would recommend the aftermarket throttle body systems, a factory fuel injection system will not work on this engine.
