I just completed my swap in my 82 silverado. I took out the 305 and dropped in an 87-89 350. The intake manifold did not bolt up to the FI heads since this was a TBI 350, so I had them drilled out to make them work with the old intake. My problem is the exhaust manifolds. I left them in the truck and stabbed the motor between them. However, my problem is I cant get them to bolt up. Are the bolt holes a little bit off. I have one bolt started but I cant get anymore. When I look to see if it lines up, it looks close but just a little off.
Anyone know if the 82 manifolds will bolt to a newer 350. Any help is sure appreciated....Thanks.
This is the first time I have done an engine swap...im sure getting an education.
