Engine swap

Is there any mods that would be necessary to switch from a 97 pstroke to a 95? Looking into salvaging a wrecked truck

Re: Engine swap

I don't exactly get what your trying to do Jim. Do you have a 95 & want 97 parts or a 97 & want 95 parts?

Re: Engine swap

Is there anything wrong with the 97?

No but my brothers gettin the salvaged 95 and rebuilding the motor and taking all the parts(bed , interior, doors) and putting them into the 97. The 95 has a bent frame but the engine and built tranny are good .

Re: Engine swap

So basically you wanna put a rebuilt 95 into your truck which has a motor with over 200k miles on it?

Re: Engine swap

Your better off with the 97 engine unless it's hurt. The 94-95s have a few different parts that can all be changed but the block is still weaker. Not an issue if you aren't building the power up.

Here is a brief run down on what's different....

-Intake plenums
-Front cover
-Hpop
-IPR
-Turbo pedistal
-Up pipes
-Oil pickup tube
-Oil pan
-EOT sensor
-Block casting

Prob something else I'm forgetting. Nothing wrong with the 94-95s but they are a little different.

Re: Engine swap

Lets not forget the bleed back issues the early motors have and the oil bypass that likes to fall apart.
