87 Nation, thanks for your response and some pricing, most important thanks for your words of encouragement. I new when I got on this site people would have their opinions on the swap, I'm OK with that and value everyone's opinion. And yes the drivability now is better than what it was, and having the convenience to turn the key and go anywhere and not worry about vapor lock, carb issues, flooding, bogging down is a nice feeling. .I couldn't give away the vin 9 307 out of my 86. 442. I eventually sold the dual snorkel, carb, and cam/lifters seperately....then scrapped the rest. Sold the transmission for ~$300. So around $550 total.
Regarding the ls swap....I wouldn't let anyone discourage you from proceeding as planned. I swapped a 4.8 and 4l60e in my 442 around 4-5 years ago.....best thing I could have done from a driveability standpoint.
