ok so i guess ill make a thread over here too, picked this beauty up in october, did some small mods to it, wheeled it, then right before christmas blew up the z22 in it, in the process of 4.3 swapping it now! follow the link to read the other build thread i have of it.

Tear down. Maybe some KA pistons. KA-E head? Who knows yet.

Got other things on the plate I need to do before I stress building a motor.

yea, a 2wd nv3500 so i can run the stock tcase and not have to worry about drivelines, also if i were to run the 4wd version with the 205 tcase that i already have i would probably have clearance problems with the torsion bar crossmember

Man, you didn't fuck around. Kinda feel like I missed a few steps at the beginning though.
Did you do the alternator conversion?
