    Well start calling all the local scrap yards, you can swap in an 350 you want, just depends on if you feel like swapping out wiring harnesses or not. Search all the old cameros, trans am's, 1500 silverados, k1500, k2500's, Blazers, K5's not only search for 350's but maybe a 400 small block or a 327 as well. If you wanna go the remaned crate way, look up on JEGS, Summit Racing, Gm Performance, Jasper Engines, places like that should be able to easly get you a crate turnkey motor for under 4 k with a warrenty and shipping.

    sometimes it is alot cheaper to get a crate motor thru ur local autoparts store (NAPA, O'Reileys, Schuck's) That way u get a good new (rebuild) motor and some LOCAL warranty

    a zz383 gm crate engine
    If you put a zz 383 crate engine in it youll love it, 400 hp / 425 fpt.

    I think they run about 3500.00 you will not be sad when you put that in a z 71, big block power in a small block.

    • Requires addition of carburetor, ignition and starter (not included).
    • Rochester Quadrajet or Holley 750-cfm carburetor recommended.

    HT383 - A big-inch small-block tuned for torque!

    There comes a time when you may not just want more power, you may need more power. Times like when you are towing your show car or bass boat with that 1970s-and-earlier GM truck, and it just doesn’t have the low-end grunt that you need to flatten hills or make a safe pass. For those times, our engineers designed the HT (high torque) 383 with lots of cubic inches and other components to enhance the low-rpm power that you need.
    The GM Performance Parts HT383 has been specifically engineered for low-rpm torque, and it’s packed with durable parts that are all brand new. It produces 435 lb.-ft. of torque at 4000 rpm, but more importantly, it produces more than 400 lb.-ft. of weight-moving torque from 2500 rpm all the way up to its 4000 rpm peak. In other words, your trailer’s worth of weekend fun is barely noticeable when hooked to a vehicle equipped with the HT383.
    The bottom end has a 383 stroker forged steel crankshaft, heavy-duty rods, and hypereutectic pistons. The block is cast iron with 4-bolt main caps, and it’s up to the task of making lots of power for years to come.
    The brand new HT383 makes a great alternative to salvage and rebuilt engines. Once installed, the HT383 makes it possible to look forward to that big hill or long haul. Don’t just drive to your favorite fishing hole—be the first one there!
    Possible Applications

    • Your hot rod truck
    • Your hot rod station wagon
    • Your heavy project car
    • Anything that requires big-block torque in a small-block package
    *Applications have not been validated. They are merely suggestions of how you might enjoy your GM Performance Parts crate engine. Some applications may affect engine warranty. See specific warranty information. Some applications may not be emission legal; check state and local ordinances.

    ZZ383 - Big-block-style power from a small-block engine!

    If you’re looking for a small-block Chevy that makes big-block power, we’ve got the engine for you! For the ultimate GM Performance Parts small-block crate engine, choose the ZZ383—a combination of Fast Burn aluminum performance heads and a 383" stroker small-block that can add up to 425 horsepower and 449 lb.-ft. of torque.
    A carefully engineered balance of torque-producing bottom-end power and horsepower-inducing Fast Burn cylinder heads combine for the ZZ383/425’s stellar performance statistics. The Fast Burn heads have large 2.00"/1.55" valves
    and specially designed chambers that draw in lots of air and fuel, burning the mixture quickly and completely. It’s a combination that generates great mid- and high-rpm power, which, when combined with the 383 cubic inch displacement, creates an awesome all-around performer.
    The ZZ383 has a specially modified engine block and 3.80"-stroke crankshaft, which produce 383 cubic inches of pure performance. The reciprocating assembly is comprised of heavy-duty components including a 4340, nitrided, and inductionhardened forged crankshaft, and unique, heavy-duty powdered metal rods. It’s 425 horses of bulletproof performance.
    With the ZZ383/425, you get the power of a big-block with the size and weight of an aluminum-headed small-block. If you’ve never driven a car with a stroked small-block and the top end components to support it, now is your chance!
    Possible Applications

    • The perfect small-block for your ‘55-57 shoebox
    • An 11-second starting point for your street/strip car
    • A street car that deserves big power
    • A weekend race car that sees a lot of action

    Fast Burn 385 Turn-Key - Hot aluminum heads collaborate with a cool small-block V-8

    GM Performance Parts designed our Fast Burn aluminum performance cylinder heads for small-block applications just like our Fast Burn 385 turn-key crate engine. Engineered to meet the demands of a hungry small-block with an aggressive camshaft, the Fast Burn cylinder heads are the featured component on this awesome small-block Chevy crate engine that blends the ZZ4 350 short block with the latest in cylinder head technology. With this hot, new turn-key option, all you need to do is install it, add the fuel, add 12V power, and go start some trouble.
    Rated at 385 horsepower and 385 lb.-ft. of torque, the Fast Burn 385 is all ZZ4 inside the crank case including the forged steel crankshaft, hypereutectic pistons, and steel hydraulic roller camshaft. Thanks to a set of the GM Performance Parts Fast Burn cylinder heads, that same short block breathes deeper and more efficiently than ever. These heads have the exclusive Fast Burn combustion chamber design to maximize the efficiency of burning the air/fuel mixture more quickly and completely—resulting in an impressive increase in power.
    The Fast Burn 385 Turn-Key is delivered to you with an aluminum dual-plane intake manifold, HEI distributor, cast iron water pump, damper, and flexplate. It also includes an accessory drive package, fuel pump, chrome air cleaner kit, Holley 750-cfm carburetor, starter, and spark plug wires. That’s a lot of horsepower in one box—we hope you can handle it!
    Possible Applications

    • Replace that iron-headed original
    • Make that show car a little faster than you first planned
    • Take it drag racing and see what happens

    sounds like you're out enough money already,if i was you i'd just look around for someone whos selling a motor thats aready pulled,or maybe someone parting out a car or truck that had a 350.usually they're pretty easy to find.i see them in the paper around here selling for 2 and 300 bucks all the time.

    well tomorrow is the day i put in the new motor..ok start i suspect it will take the weekend. i got a 350 crate motor from GM . turns out my brother knows a guy that works with them and got me a 30% discount! and all the specs will match cuz its coming from GM who took my entire vin# to match with the motor.. not to mention i also get a 3 yr 100,000 mile parts and labor warranty with it! so with the 30% off the bump up to the manufacturer with the warranty its the same as getting one rebuilt from a store! but a NEW motor and a better warranty. now its time to start wrenching. id like to say thank you to all the guys that commented and helped me out with this. i appreciate it.:big_smile:
