The 1996 frame accepts the 4.3 v-6 so the v-8 will fit with-out notching. The one in my pic was done along time ago and has issues. Now there are companies that sell kits that have all the parts you would have to fabricate. Are you going to swap to a carb or keep it Vortec. If it is auto the computer runs the tranny. You're best bet would be to get a 350, the PCM and wiring harness from a '96 through '99.5 1/2 ton and swap it in. If your going to swap to a carbed SBC the factory computer should still run the tranny but you will need to mount a throttle position on the carb and send a tach signal back to the computer.

Let me know what motor and tranny you would like to run and I can go more in depth. You will have to research the kits, look for motor mounts and exhaust alignment. Due to the length of the motor the shroud cannot be re-used on the rad. I recommend switching to dual electric fans with a full coverage shroud and upgrading to a 4 core rad. I'm using one from a 70's caddy, biggest one that would fit with the flush angled rad cap.
