350 parts swap 80's chev truck
I am looking to swap parts from my 350 for parts out of say a corvette or RV engine etc to increase acceleration, efficiency and gas mileage, the most I will be pulling is a tent trailer but I want speed.
I know there are many parts you can just switch over from bigger engines for performance I just dont know what they are.
My 350 is either an LS9 or a LT9 (VIN code says L), I have a 400 transmission in right now but will be switching to a 700r4 later.
These engines will be out of the wreckers so these parts will be used, therefore engine codes etc will need to be known/researched, this is a side project so I am not worried about brand new parts unless the price difference is minimal.
also looking to upgrade the alternator, is there a higher amperage in a different V8 that I could just swap over?
thank you for your time
