You can put the Vortec in it if you have the wiring and ecm to run it. or you could use the Vortec heads and an aftermarket intake and really wake up your engine. The vortecs use a roller cam.

Can a 350 from a 1988 gmc truck replace a 1996 Tahoe 350?

The 88 engine is a TBI / Throttle Body injection engine. I don't know the month of 1996 when they changed to the vortec engine fuel system, But I believe it was in late 1996. You should know if the 1996 engine is a TBI engine or a vortec engine if you have Sean it. So if it is a TBI engine then you have no problems, Put it in there and hook everything up and your good to go. Now if it's a vortec engine you have problems, None of the wireing will hook up to the 88 engine sensors. And the 96 computer will not run the 88 engine. And the fuel pump in the 96 Tahoe has to much fuel pressure for a TBI engine. You can not put the vortec fuel system/ intake manifold on the 88 engine because none of the intake bolts will match the heads or vise verse. You will be opening a can of worms. You need to go back with a vortec engine if that is whats in the Tahoe now.

Can you install a 1996 vortec 350 in a 1991 Chevy pickup?

Yes you can, But you will have to replace the fuel pump. The 91 fuel pump pressure is 9 to 13 LBS. Required pressure for the vortec to make it run is 55 to 62 LBS. of pressure. The next thing you will have to change to make it run is the compleate wireing harness so you can use the 1996 powertrain control module ( PCM ). You will have to use all of the ignition parts that belong on the vortec engine. Every device that came on the vortec engine must be on it to make it run. The next problem is the 700R4 Transmission that is in the truck now needs the 91 PCM computer to work. Remember you changed it to the 1996 PCM so the engine will run. In other words you will now need the 1996 Transmission. 4L60 or 4L80E trans. Depending on if the 96 was a 1/2 ton are a 3/4 ton. That will make a difference in what transmission you will need so the 1996 computer- PCM will shift the Transmission correctly. The GOVERMENT does not want us modifying anything anymore. And that is why you will need everything that it took to make the 96 engine run. Good luck, I would like to know how it works out for you. NEUTZ.

Will the heads off a 97 vortec fit of a 88 350 block?

Yes, they will fit, and increase torque by a good amount. However, the Vortec heads used a vertical intake bolt design, so you will not be able to use your intake manifold. Side note on the vertical intake bolts, you also need to get Vortec specific intake bolts, because they bottom out in the heads to stop from overtightening and seal better. All in all, vortecs are a good purchase, if you have the money for a new intake manifold. Edelbrock makes some great ones specifically for vortec heads on older engines. look into it. hope i could help.
