Default L67 Swap in Blazer

Want to swap in a 3.8L Supercharged engine in teh blazer for 2 reasons :

Fuel efficient and Higher stock HP / Torque

the 3.8L are easy to tune / mod for easy 300hp

any kits to get those bolted on a 5 Speed with 4X4 ?

You would need to get the block out of a Camaro so that it would have provisions on the sides for longitudinal mounting.

No, but they had 3.8 V6s that you could "top swap" the blower/heads/etc. to.

No, they were naturally aspirated only.

^^^THIS^^^

What the Camaro 3.8L V6 gets you is a longitudinally mounted block (i.e. a block with bosses on the sides for motor mounts) that can accept the heads on up from the transverse mounted FWD motors found in the Grand Prix & Bonneville L67 motors.

To mate a 3.8L V6 to the 4L60E, you will need to swap the bell housing on your current transmission for a 60 degree V6 bell housing. Taking a bell housing from the same Camaro you pulled the engine block out of would work!

Just give me an LS1 and I'll call myself happy. Had one in a '98 Camaro SS and that was the sweetest running engine I've ever had the pleasure to push the skinny pedal on.

And counted in those engines are more than a few big blocks from the '60's/'70's.
