'97 S10 '97 Blazer '97 Bravada '97 Astro '97 If you have the complete vehicle its going into complete with wiring harness and correct computer it can be mated into latter years as new as 2002

So it has to be a 97 without engine, but with complete vehicle I can go up to a 02?


1996 to 2001 C/K Trucks, Tahoe, Suburban, Blazer, will accept this motor, but to run it, they would have to have had the 4.3L engine in them. If they came with a V8 then you would need the computer & wiring harness for a 4.3L for these years in order to run the 1997 4.3L. You also would need the motor mounts, fan shroud, and other misc. parts to hook it up.
