Not going to happen in my area.

That and I have no interest in such.
I was asuming you would do the work. If you're not buying a new truck may be the most cost effective option.

I am doing the work. And I'm happy with the truck as is. I need an engine and nothing more. Salvage yards are few and proud. The HD transmissions go for $1000+ (guy at work had his rebuilt for a little more than the yard wanted for a 200,000 mile unit with no warranty).

I have a line on a 400 and a 454. If that doesn't work the 350 will have to do.

No disrespect, but it just struck me as silly to do what you suggested.

It may sound silly but when you figure in the costs it makes sense for a LOT of people. Ask anyone with a fleet of work trucks if its silly or not.
