#466 of 487 4.2 L Envoy motor into a 51 GMC 1/2T
Jul 10, 2009 (4:49 pm)
Don't know if this is the right place for info, but here goes:
I have a 4.2 l (I-6) Envoy motor that I will be fitting into a 1/2T GMC pick-up. The problem I have run into is that the Envoy 6 cyl motor has a unique 8 bolt pattern to connect the flex plate to the flywheel. Normally, this would be no problem except I want to put in a standard transmission. I want/need some transmission speed sensors to keep the computer happy and I really want a transmission whose case will closely bolt up to the 4.2 motor. I have narrowed it down to an Aisin 5 speed from a Canyon or Colorado. Hopefully, the flywheel will interchange and the trans case will bolt up. I know that this transmission is a bit light on the torque requirements, but I am a fairly modest driver.
Can any of you offer me any help on this project? I am committed to do this, so please don't give me any "can't be done" replies. Thanks for your help.

I always assumed that replacing an inline-4 with a V6 would be harder to swap than just another inline-4.
I feel for you since my inline-4 trooper is dog slow also. I'm thinking about an engine rebuild and new carburetor to pep it up.
#473 of 487 4.2l I6?
Feb 08, 2011 (9:53 am)
I have a '01 gmc jimmy I want to know if a 4.2l I6 will fit. Will I have to buy a new computer for it? Is it the same wiring from a trailblazer/envoy? Will I have to do big modifications for it?

The 4.2l is from my buddy's trailblazer, it can rear end and the insurance claim it's salvage but the engine is good with 55k

I am building a 72 nova in which I am planning on installing a 5.7 litre vortec out of a 97 silverado. I have the entire truck, so I plan on using the 460le transmission and the computer. Any suggestions on making this as painless as possible?
