Got one for you guys. I have a Chevy 94 5.7 ltr TBI motor that has a bent rod in it... I also have been given a Chevy 96 5.7 ltr CSFI engine out of a suburban... My question is on the basic level...could I possibly take the two engines down to block level and make one good engine using the Burban block? I guess I mean to say is the pistons, rods ect ... interchangeable since they are the basically the same engine? Meaning same size... I "feel" like we could but need input. Thanks...
