To all, what is the easiest, pain free chevy crate motor engine replacment for a 350 tbi chevy in a 1990 Brougham. i am just looking to replace a tired motor and have some more fun when i hit the pedal. i have the towing package with the 700R4 and the 3.23 gears. assuming the trans gets rebuilt to hold up to more hp and the rear end stays together if i do not do burnouts all over the place for now. there is so much info and so many swaps that involve the LT1 and the later brooghams, but what engine am i looking for the will just bolt in and provide some more power if i were to order a new motor form sdpc or gmpart direct to have a shop swap in? what else should i look to do to make it run at its best? computer reprogram, edelbrock tbi intake? upgraded tbi set-up from holley, etc? any help is greatly appreciated. than

What about a 383 or 355 TPI motor from a '88-92 3rd gen F-body?

Why not rebuild yours? You've already got a 350. If it doesn't need a rebuild, a good cam and some AFR heads (stay away from Vortec heads if you live in a cold-winter climate) will do wonders. You could easily net yourself 100 horses and ft. lbs. with heads and a cam. Head over to Chevyhiperformance.com and ask for Old Bogie. He can give you pages on pages of info.

Sell it in tax season for $3000. Take that money and money reserved for engine. Buy a 40000 mile 96 Fleecewood for $6000. They are out there.

Vette engine.

I have to disagree. As much as I like the 93-up Fleetwoods, they just dont compare in the looks department to a nicely kept 90-92 model, especially a black one!. The motor I mentioned above will outrun an LT1. Add some gears, dual exhaust and a slight stall converter and he will be golden. :thumbsup:
