Asked by Feb 27, 2016 at 06:33 AM about the 1996 Chevrolet Tahoe 2 Dr LS 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

ok you guys where very helpful last time here is one more i know that the
engines are the same but my tahoe engine set up has 8 bolts and the yukon
has 4 would i just use my intake manifold from my tahoe to remedy the issue

1 Answer


What are the year differences and are you talking the number of bolts that hold down the intake manifold? Sounds like one motor is a Vortec motor and the other a TBI set-up motor.
