won't let me edit the last post...? the twin turbo 4.3 nelson racing built was actually done on the old platform. I've reached out to them to see about getting their help on my lv3 build. especially the intake and tuning. I'll start a new thread on in the projects area once I'm back on land and start working on her....

Re: 4.3 Chevy v6 builds.

If you really want light GM, they sell a e-rod version of their turbo 4. It has "lightweight" mentioned like 87 times, but nowhere do they tell you how much it weighs... I would love to put that in the Elky I have, but $7,000 is a bit steep. Probably runs better then 99% of the 1967s ever did though.

Re: 4.3 Chevy v6 builds.

I know the old Nascar Busch Grand National Series ran the V6 at one time years ago but I don't know what they were based on.

Re: 4.3 Chevy v6 builds.

Yes folks, the LV3 4.3 is a modern all aluminum direct injection engine. It's part of the gen V series. It makes 285 hp and 305 tq.

It has NOTHING to do with the old school iron block 4.3 that was created by chopping a pair of cylinders off an old school gen 1 small block 350.

Blake, this would be a very interesting build, I hope you post pics if you do it. I believe chassis interference will be your biggest problem.

I didn't even consider that....its something ill have to deal with eventually. No matter what I'm going to run a modern power plant, if that means I've got to run an entire new wiring and grounding system for lights, computer, ect. so be it. the dream I'm chasing is a classic feeling chevelle with all the comforts of modern safety, reliability and handling including but not limited to abs, independent rear disk suspension, coil overs upfront. the only part i want to keep original is the 4spd Muncie, it's gotta have a rock crusher to be a chevelle, even if i do plan on adding a gearvendors overdrive unit.
a true one of a kind custom machine

I pick her up next weekend, stay tuned folks.

Re: 4.3 Chevy v6 builds.

My boat 4.3L actually came from a 2010+ Silverado/van. The thing is a torque monster and handle WOT well, that is all a boat does is run hard, in 1st gear, WOT. The boat has a Holley 4bbl marine carb and marine intake.

Later 4.3L engines have a balance shaft to keep vibration down. The shorter engine should bolt in but with the driveshaft may be too short after the install. Should be a cool build

That's NOT the engine that this thread is about.

Re: 4.3 Chevy v6 builds.

^ that's what I figured out after I read one of the links. Sounds like a very interesting engine.
