    Will this fit in my 75 Chevy k20. I’m thinking I’ll have to change oil pan?

    Asked by: Marc74
    If you are required to change the oil pan for your application that will not hurt or void our engine warranty.

    I have a 73 chevelle that has a 5.7L engine with an automatic transmission. Will this kit be the only thing I need or will I need something else with it to complete the install?

    Asked by: Bmcvey444
    Between this engine kit and your parts off of the old engine you should have just about everything that you would need to put this engine into your Chevelle.

    Would this engine work in 1976 corvette

    can I install a vortex supercharger on this engine

    Asked by: ralph71
    While you theoretically could do so, this engine is not ideally set up for a supercharger. Too much compression, vacuum secondary carburetor, hypereutectic pistons, and cast crankshaft are all not well suited to a supercharged application.

    Will this fit under the hood of a 99 gmc sonoma formerly with a 4.3? Also, will it work with the 4l60e that was with the 4.3?

    Asked by: Slumwolf17
    This will fit under the hood, but you will have do do some modifications to make everything work properly.
