is some decent 4.3L info.
I don't recall what year the 4.3L V6 got a balance shaft. But basically you want to replace like w/like as closely as needed. By that I mean don't go '96-up, else the intake surely will not fit and there's no way to make it fit.
My local wrecking yard has a few reasonably low mileage engines (93-95) so I was going to get the complete engine so it comes with intake on it and I hope this isn't an issue then.
Thanks for the replies.
