    What year engines will fit a 95 K1500

    I have a 95 K1500 with a 5.7 that needs to be replaced. I am getting conflicting stories as to what year models will fit.

    What year range will work?

    Does it matter if the donor is 2wd or 4wd?

    Thanks for your help,

    Well technically any year 350 or SBC should fit. Different years may have different motor mount locations but dont quote me on that..

    I know for sure 88-95 motors will be direct swaps with no mods needed, Vortec 350s will need some modifications made to the computer, (tbi is obd1 vortec is obd2) And no 2wd or 4wd will not make a difference.

    Yes, but thats not the OP's question. He is looking for a stock swap from a donor vehicle. Since he has a 95 which is still TBI, he would not want to use a 96+ engine.

    At least I think thats what he is aiming for.

    Thanks for the info guys. This is not a situation where I want to experiment or run into roadblocks. I just want to pull one out and put the other in. I don't have a problem swapping components or swapping intakes, etc. I just do not want to have to do any fab work on this one. As long as the long block is the same, I am in business.

    Pre-92 has a different TBI Unit

    use a 92-95 engine.

    or put your TBI unit on a Pre-92 engine.

    well get any Truck TBI motor then, you just might have to switch the TBI unit.
