Yes and thank you very much, now to find out what they came out in to see if I can find a wrecked unit to salvage the parts I will need looks like this will be the cheapest way to go, would the motor and trans from a van change the same as a 1500 truck or would the truck work better for all the parts I will need, it has been many years since I got into some thing like this and I have ether forgotten or never knew much

I bought a book (How to Swap GM LS-Series Engines into almost anything) to answer the very questions you're asking. The book was written by Jefferson Bryant, and published by Car Tech Inc. (SA 156) www.cartechbooks.com. It's a soft cover book that I found at Barnes&Noble. I thought you might want to check it out!
