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 486 4.2l I6?
Feb 08, 2011 (10:53 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?
