what is the current engine in the K5? if it's another 350 is should be a very close match, as long as the tranny was the same

It will bolt up fine. Are you maintaining the FI on the 88 or going back to the carb setup that would be in your 82?

Sounds good. Good luck.

By the way, I like the color scheme on your K5 !
