My tired 4.3 vortec in my Astro van is about done. These vans are seriously underpowered, and I am wondering if anybody has taken out a 4.3 fuelie in a 95 or newer Astro and put in a carbed V8?

Or another question I could ask also is.... anybody have a good recipe for making the 4.3 Vortec into good power and torque?

1st, YES u can put a V8 in you van, BUT you have to remember about emissions in your state. so ya may NOT be able to run a carb, but then u can use most of ur 4.3 injection stuff on ur 350, w/that being said look at these sites...joe

http://www.astrosafari.net/ look at the top & u'll see a small screen, the forums sections are in there w/the V8 swaps
