What was the most popular 5.7ltr motor used for the C1500 in 93?
Welcome to the site! Probably the TBI 350.
Now that would still be a Gen I 350 right? Can you get a stand alone for this motor?
Not sure about the generation number, sorry. I've looked for a stand alone ECU for my '94 and haven't found anything out there that doesn't require re-wiring the harness to match the ECU. If you find anything, let me know. Hell, I'll settle for a decent piggy back that'll give me control over timing and fuel trim.
In 93 there was a 350 and a Vortec 350. The Vortec have more ponies.
In 93 you could get a Vortec 4.3 v-6, but the Vortec 350 (5.7) didn't show up until the 96 model year.
I still have a 90 Chevy I bought new that has a 350 vortec. The difference is in the heads. About 35hp difference.
