Re: Whats the going rate for a 4.3 engine ?
If you're bleeding tranny fluid all over the place then yes, there is a chance of fire. If you're just leaking a little bit here and there there's less worry. I think that tranny fluid has a pretty high flash point, so it'll take some heat to get it to ignite.
As far as your question about the letter to designate displacement? Dunno what you mean. Horsepower (HP) is about 160 to 180 for "regular" engines and 195 for the ZR2-specific engines. Do you mean the VIN codes for the engines?
BTW -- a swap to a 4.3 from a 2.8 isn't going to be easy. You'll need a whole new tranny. With a 3.4 coversion you can still keep your stock tranny in it's place. Big difference between the 60 degree and 90 degree v6's.
The letter you're look for is "L" -- Liters! [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
