1985-1999 5.7, just swap the intake and sensors as needed

96+ 5.7 engines. Chevy didn't make a 5.8 so I assume you have the 5.7 (350). If you use an older one it won't have the vortec heads that you need to bolt the intake on. Old heads are drilled differently for the intake. Not to mention the vortec heads produce alot more power than an older one.
