My problem is the opposite. I have a 1990 4.3 that I want to put into a 2000 S-10 Blazer. I have the 1990 engine and it is good. The 2000 is toast. I just want to know if the sensor wells etc. are all there for such a conversion. Normally, people put new engines in old vehicles. I'm proposing to put an old engine into a newer car. I'm just trying to help one of my son's friends get back on his feet. Thanks for the help. I'm a mopar guy and don't have much experience with these vehicles.
did you ever figure out how to do it i have the same problem

I have a 1988 S10 that was originally a 2.8..no motor now. I found a 2000 Blazer with a 4.3 vortec engine. How much trouble will it be to get the wiring and all right. I can get the whole Blazer wiring and all, just want to know if it will all fit. Thanks

Will a 4.3 from 2000 s-10 work in a 1997 S-10? If not, what modifications need to be done to make it work?
