Motor rebuild around Vortecs and emissions
Hello all. I wanted to get some opinions from you all on a motor. My brother is coming up from Texas in June and he wants to rebuild the 350 in his K5 Blazer.
He wants to pep it up a bit so I suggested that I would find out some info on the Vortec heads and such.
From what I can gather we will need a special intake for his TBI setup and a couple of smaller adapters. I am concerned with the fact that Texas has emissions testing. I would like to suggest a cam for his application that will work well with his heads AND be emissions friendly. Can anyone shed some light on this?
Also, are the Vortec heads in Jegs the same as the ones on 96 and up trucks? I am wondering if it wouldn't be cheaper for him to buy a used set, go through them use em'.
Thanks in advance!
