4.3 Vortec conversion questions...
Well I haven't been on this forum for a looooong time. Anyway with all my other projects finally completed, I can now get started on my Samurai. I have a 2000 4.3 V-6 out of an S-10. I got the harness from FI.com, so I'm good there. I'm still debateing on which tranny to use. I have a fresh TH350, but I really want the OD gearing of the 200R4. This question is to you guys that have done this conversion already. Is it neccessary to lift the body for clearance ?? If so how much ?? I rather not lift the body, then again I didn't want to clearance the body either. I pulled the body off in order to reinforce the frame. If a body-lift is neccessary, I'll build new body mounts with the lift in them already. Also how you 4.3ers tranfers cases' holding up ?? I was told by different places that they hold up well with a slush box no problem. Anyway if you guys got a second, give me some info....Thanks !!
