Astro v8 swap...

What's up everyone.......

I'm planning a v8 swap for my astro but had a couple of questions... It's an 88 with a 4.3 v6 and was wondering if the serpentine belt assembly would fit a 92 vortec engine. I found a 1992 g20 van and pulled out the engine, got the block rebuilt. Iím currently looking for heads and was hoping that if I go with a new pair of vortecís that the belt system from the v6 would bolt right on.

Also, since the donor engine came with fi and the rebuild is going to be carb. Would I only need to go from a fuel pressure regulator to the carb? If so, which one would you recommend I use?

Hope this makes sense...

Thanks..

PS.. Does anyone know if astrosafari.com is gone for good?

yes the sep system will bolt to the v8..you need a reg with a by pass for the carb...and remember the voterc head have to have a different intake cause of the intake bolts...most parts in this swap are the same parts used in the s10 swap..i had a s10 with a small block than with a big block..so i am like the king of s10 swaps..lol..

Are there other heads that will align with the stock serp. belt from the v6. Just want to know what my options are, since I want to keep the existing serp. belt.

Thanks...
