Carbed 2.8 questions
Hey all! Remember that 85 S-10 4x4 my relatives had that they thought blew the engine? Well, it turns out it was just knocking and was hard to start(or wouldn't at all) after it got warm. So, they replaced the fuel pump(making noise), and next the timing chain. Now they tell me they want to sell it to buy a fullsize to tow there horses around. I'm thinking of buying it, cause its very solid, has a 2" body lift, alum wheels, 31"Sport Kings, a cap and its a 5 speed! They paid about $500 for it 3 months ago, and its pretty much sat since then. Could I swap in a 2.8 TBI or multi-port fairly easily without totally rewiring everything? Not right now, but when I get tired of the carb. Or would a 3.4 be worth the extra $$. I need to know this before I decide to buy it, cause if not, I'll buy an 86-88 with TBI. Should be a very cool project, maybe a D30/D44 swap 5" springover lift, 33" SSR's, 4.11s, 3.1 turbo. Just dreamin.
