    It's not difficult, everything you'll need is available from the aftermarket, but be prepared to spend about 10 grand. People think because it's a Chevy it's an easy cheap swap, but almost nothing interchanges between a LS engine and a Gen 1. Getting the complete low mileage engine/tranny combo with all accessories and ECM from a wrecking yard is usually about $4000-$5000. Aftermarket wiring harness is about $1200. Then you need LS style motor tmounts, exhaust, figure out the gauges, etc, etc. It all adds up fast. It'll be alot easier and cheaper to build up a 350.
