4.3 TBI uses the same injector as a 350 tbi..same throttle body.. everything.. so yeah you could bore it out and do some thangs..you could probably turbo it without too much difficulty.

theres a few manufacturers that sell kits for the swap. comes with motor mounts, headers that fit around the steering shaft and stuff that you wouldnt think about having to change before you do the motor swap.
