If you are looking from within the S-series, you can only get another 2.8
4x4 transmission (unless you want to do more than just replacing the tranny
straight up). If your's was 2 wheel drive there would be more options. One
thing to consider, depending on the condition/mileage of your motor, is you
can do both motor and tranny at one time and save yourself
headache/time/labor in the future. The 3.1L and 3.4L motors are great
replacements for the 2.8L.
Actually, if the tranny needs to go anyway, now would be a GREAT time
to get that dog of an engine out of the truck. A 4.3 would swap in
easily, it was an option on that year truck. The 4.3 requires a
different tranny compared to the 2.8, that's why now would be a GREAT
time to do this.
Yup. Additionally, the 700r4 with the standard sbc bell pattern is a heck of
a lot easier to find.
Just put a built Vette 700R4 in my 89. All I lack now is to mod the
inspection cover to bolt up to the trans, and weld my exhaust back
