Default 93 Astro V8 powered with BB Chevy 462

1993 Astro EXT 2wd
TBI 305 runs and drives perfect, but throws a stupid ABS code. (brakes are all new, just the controller is dumb)
Rust free body, all front end components replaced @ 5k miles ago
New LeMans tires 235/70/15

The extras:
462 Big block Chevy engine from 79 Suburban (454 bored .040, double roller chain and gears approx. 10k on engine)
1993+ TBI intake for BB engine
TBICHIPS.COM custom burned chip for engine/transmission combo
Trans-go shift kit w/corvette servo
Summit K-1301 cam and lifters
Kwik performance bracket kit for factory bracket use
Airtek NEW reverse rotation water pump
Hooker long tube headers used, but mint.
Weld in bung for heated O2 sensor

Essentially all that needs done is bolt all the goodies to the big block and drop it in. The engine will fit without modification to the doghouse or floorboards.

Parts that are needed for big block finalization:
Morse engineering 53MM bored TBI unit (spoke with Roy, $195 shipped to perform on an original Astro TBI)
454 injectors
Heated O2 sensor
Tranny needs a front pump seal while things are apart, it drips a wee bit, right on the exhaust crossover, very annoying.







The van is located in Saginaw, and can be driven anywhere as is.

$3000. Sorry no trades, don't even ask.

The engine had around 70k on it when installed in the van. When it sits for long periods, it does the GM puff, but does not smoke. New style valve seals would fix that right up.

$1800 for the van by itself. Drive it home, or anywhere you desire.
