Its a pretty easy swap or so I have seen. Adapter plate for the mounts and might have to trim the front cross member little.

But check out car-part.com look for a yard local to you on there. Then call and tell them you want a complete take out motor.

my lq4/4l80e swap in my 86 c10...got if from a local wrecking yard....$2200....very easy swap! recommend buying an aftermarket harness, it will save a lot of time and guesswork!
