Old Chevrolet Truck With New(ish) Engine Proves There's Much To Love In A ... - GM Authority (blog)

Take the owner of this 1994 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Regular Cab, for example, who recently took to YouTube to explain some of the ins and outs involved in his engine swap. As it turns out, the old truck gets its shove courtesy of a junkyard 5. 3L Vortec V8 (325 hp and 335 lb-ft of torque) lifted out of a 2001 Chevrolet Suburban. 030-inches, LS6 valve springs, and even an LS2 cam, while its finished off by a 4L80-E transmission and 3. 74 rear gears. While we’re not provided any stats or performance figures, all that added grunt is sure to get this lightweight two-door pickup down the road significantly faster than its stock look and stance suggests. The owner soon plans to treat the truck to a four-inch drop, but we’d love to see him retain the stock look and feel and simply let the Small Block-swapped Chevy truck speak for itself.
