Default 94 K1500 L33 upgrade

You may have seen my thread about getting my 94 K1500 back a month ago or so. The tranny has continued to slip and not move when cold. Had a quote of around $2400 to pull it make it bullet proof and put it back in. So for the same money roughly I can put in a LSx swap.

Went to my local junk yard and bought a 2005 L33 complete pull out with trans. Just got it home today. Got a call last night from a guy that wants the TBI engine. So its all coming out soon. Stay tuned

Here are a few pics.

Thanks! I can't wait to see the end either! I'm planning to have it done by Christmas or shortly there after. I have a week off work at Christmas, but be nice to relax and not bust tail on a project
