    So talked to him more today and allegedly it wasn’t the original motor in his truck either, said it’s supposed to be the motor and trans out of a 92 and it previous owner before him carbed it.

    Tbi block means it has the bosses cast on for the factory roller setup, some even came drilled and tapped from the factory plus it’s a 1 piece rear main seal. Heads are 100% garbage but vortec heads are cheap and flow good. You could potentially buy it, put another $700 into it with a cam, used heads and an intake. You would have 300-350 hp no problem. Trans a turbo 350 or 700r4?

    Haha, I know nothing about these motors and really don’t have a ton of “motor” knowledge stuffed in my brain simply because I’ve never had to. I’ll def take your word and look into all of that some more, the trans is a turbo 400 so assuming it’s not what goes with the motor originally?

    No it’s not what would have been with it originally but that’s not a bad thing, turbo 400s are good transmissions. Turbo 350 vs turbo 400 is like 4l60e vs 4l80e, the 400 is simply stronger.
