Southwest Arkansas.

The crushing of cars and trucks is one of the worse things that's happened to shade tree mechanics. They can make quicker money crushing them than they can waiting on people come to buy parts.

And of course circle dirt tracks have gotten rid of many models of cars.

Converting to carb is a bigger pain than it looks. What about everything the computer is wired to that it controls like the instrument cluster? The transmission is electronically controlled, how do you plan on fixing that if you dump the ECU? It's just not worth it, you can just get an ECU tune from a professional tuner for a few hundred dollars and see much bigger gains that you would from converting to carb for the same price, and to see the same gains as a 4.3 even in stock tune, you'll need to get the exact right carb and tune it perfectly, it's not worth it at all.

Keep it EFI and get a tune, you'll bump up power and mileage tremendously and it's much easier and quicker, and to top it off will have better driveability in every weather.

Oh me, lets see, I've had several cars and trucks ranging from a 57 Chevy to a 85 Blazer that had carburetors and had no drivability with any of them. Besides that, many of the older Blazers are not even worth the several hundred dollars you speak of.

I didn't say with a carb it won't be driveable on the street, but modded EFI has better driveability on the street in most cases. I had a Silverado with a 4bbl Edelbrock, ran terrible because I found out the last guy put a 600CFM carb on a 250 flywheel hp motor, I put a 500CFM carb on and it ran much better. Edelbrock Performer carbs are made to run smooth on the street out of the box but it's still not as smooth as any of the tuned EFI cars i've driven like my old 5.0 Mustang.
