Got my '97 CSFI for $800 complete, and a Howell harness for $600, done, purrs like a kitten. $1400, but, then theres the aluminum radiator, plugs, wires, time, air filter, etc, so I'll just call it an even 2k.

Lets not forget to tell the kiddies it also depends on what trans you run behind the 4.3, that will also have an influence on the cost's....

Im not trying to step on anyones toes or hijack the post, but I do have a drivetrain for sale that would be bad ass for a Toyota truck/runner if anyone is interested. '95 Vortech 4.3 CPI/4L60E/23spline Toy gear driven case. Comes with stainless headers, brand new Painless harness in box, computer, some misc stuff. Motor has (38,000 original miles), tranny and Tcase have been gone through, hd parts in the tranny, stock converter. I will take $2250 for everything, you pick up. PM or e-mail me if interested. I had this for sale in the for sale section for a long time and had many bites, but all my buyers have backed out. I may repost it there if anyones puss starts to hurt since I posted here:p .

Total was $1000


Harness modification for stand alone,computer & computer tweaking, VSS, & Signal modifiier. $600

Rebuilt 700R4 with GM updates, new factory stall convertor & B&M Cooler. $700

Advance Adapter kit to retain Toyota t-case & new output shaft. $500

Toyota radiator with inlet/outlet swapped to opposite sides. $80

The only thing I paid for was the transmission.:D
