I'm still trying to decide what I want to do.....does a chevy V6 use the same
mounts as a SB V8:confused:

I am sure it could be made to fit with some metal and a welder. The oppisite swap is done all the time on S-10 trucks. Take out a v-6 and install a v-8 chevy

Yes a Chevy 4.3 V6 will bolt right in to the same mounts as a smallblock V8. I am talking Chevy V8 from 60's, 70's, 80"s and early 90's. The 4.3 V6 is just a v8 with the two rear cylinders cut off. Uses the same bellhousing, waterpump, starter, etc......

do keep in mind the 4.3 is about 4" shorter, big gap at the rear of the motor to the firewall, and the tran mount won't line up.

Ok does that mean that when they take off the two cyls on a 350 that they could put them on a 350 and have a V-10. HUMMMM what a thought,two v-6s and you could have a V-12. I better get back to the shop before I get too excited.
