I'm still planning on getting pictures. The one thing that has killed me on this that Im just now seeing is the accessories. My engine came with no brackets or accessories other than water pump. I started collecting all the parts from local parts stores and it gets expensive fast! I figured since I have nothing to start with, I'll go with Corvette accessory drive since it sits lower in the engine bay, the truck stuff sits really high, and the Corvette parts arent any more expensive if buying rebuilt at the autoparts store, but figure $100 for each part, it adds up fast if you dont get it with the engine.
power steering pump
balancer (different than truck)
water pump (different than truck)
Getting the cheapest deals off ebay, amazon and advance auto (15% discount right now) all that costs as much as the engine almost. At least its all new or rebuilt so it should last.
