Hi, I am thinking about trying to put a 99 5.7 vortec engine into a 93
suburban, I know I will have to get a vortec tbi intake to keep my TBI, can
anyone tell me if the rest of my stuff will just bolt on, or do I have to
swap out alot of other stuff as well? I know that the timing chain cover it
totally different however the rest looks alike, can i use the harmonic
balancer from the 93 on the 99 or not how about the flex plate is it the
same or different. Thanks, Pat.
You'll need and exhaust manifold for the driver side with an EGR tube that
can be had from Jim Pace Performance (can't remember the part number. Is
this a '99 block? If so, then you should be ok with heat by-passes. If old
block, then you may need a 1/8" hole in the t-stat flange.
May need an EPROM made up for the higher efficiency engine/heads combo. You
will be doing some fabricating for your throttle cable, and detent cable I
I'm still thinking about if you will need anything else... Can anyone
else think of something I'm forgetting?
ORANGE paint from your local NAPA dealer. If the engine is coming out of
the truck, then do what GM didn't do and paint the thing the RIGHT color.
Otherwise, paint to be color matched with the truck (unless black, then see
the original color comment).
I have a set of exaust manifolds for that engine from a 99 Tahoe 5.7 vortec
if you're interested. They ar in perfect shape, just off my truck.
