I have a late 1988 newer style K2500 with a 350 in it. I am looking to swap it out for another motor. What years would be interchangeable with it?

Almost any 350 will work, and with a little work you can even get a vortec to work with your existing engine management system.

What all would I need to do. What if I want to go back to carb & distibutor.

On the vortec 350 it would just be a matter of drilling and tapping the heads for the manifold you want, the distributor will fit and time it as you would normally or got summit catalog and buy the kits, more money though.
