    My friend who don't have access is doing an engine swap in his garage. He bought a 95 long block, and wants to drop it in his 85 sub. He also wants to see if he can swap the tailgate for barn doors. After much reading both here and on other sites, I have decided to post my thread here. We need straight answers and this site has the best feedback I have seen. We have a 95 TBI engine, minus everything but an alternator and intake. He wants to add all the stuff off the original 85 carb motor to it, and drop it in the sub. Any help here would be highly appreciated.

    Well today we matched up an 85 dual plane intake with the 95 TBI block. They line up perfectly. For good measure we installed a set of AC60G plugs in the van.
