well i have been extremely busy lately and im way behind on this thread. Since i have done so much to the blazer already and it will take for ever to start from the beginning. I think i will start off with my current project until i find time to go through all my pictures and start from day one.

My current project involves this

Yes, that is a 5.7l 350 out of a 98 k1500.
I completely tore it down and sent the block and heads in to be inspected. I also had the block bored 30 over.

I bought new Hypereutectic Flat Top pistons along with clevite performance rod and main bearings.

I also bought a new cam and valve springs. The cam is a comp cams xtreme 4x4 with 260/264 duration and .474/.474 lift

Decided to get new full roller rocker arms too.

Forgot to take pics after i put the bottom end together but heres one with everything but the intake on.

Here it is completed minus the front accessories and brackets.

I will be stating the swap this weekend! I will try to update this when i can.

That treefitty will wake a s-series up. I love swapping them and always regret getting rid of them until I start on another.

My next one is gonna be my first s-series lx swap. I've helped on a few in different trucks but haven't owned my own yet. Just gonna wait till I get done with the sfa first so I can use more 2wd parts instead of having to custom do everything.

I really don't like anything about 2nd gens but yours is one of the few (I can count on one hand) I actually do like the looks of.

After 4 hours of work i had the front clip off.

And roughly 4 hours after that the motor was sitting on the ground


Right now the firewall is almost completely stripped as im going to paint it with hurculiner. I also plan on using it on the frame in the front too. Im waiting on a new heater box to come this week. It is for non ac so there wont be the evaporator under the hood and i will have room for a second battery. Im also replacing the master cylinder and installing a proportioning valve and getting rid of the abs. Along with replacing the front brake lines with copper easy bend lines. Im picking up a new power steering gear box and new idler and pitman arms sometime this week too. Im hoping to get all that done this week and possibly get the new motor in next weekend.
