I'm thinking of swapping my engine in my '80 K20. It's going to be my keeper truck, so I am hoping to put the best set up possible. I'm not looking to go off-roading, mudding, or rock climbing. I want to just have a great reliability, power, and torque. It currently has a 383 stroker with a 400 turbo xmsn. It feels sluggish after tuning, carb adjustment, and more (not including rebuild).

Right now I have the opportunity to get a 427 or a 454. No matter what I choose, the engine I get, or the 383, will be rebuilt. Just getting the feel of what you all think about this, seeing how this is my first full project.

Thanks for the help!

I have always wanted a square body growing up. Found this gem a little over a year ago. Drove 8 hours and took her home.

My nephew just put some Klein Train horns on his Chevy Duramax.
They are totally awesome. I am going to install them on my 1987 Chevy 1 ton dump. I know I would have to modify the brackets or maybe they offer a kit for the old trucks...I'll check it out.

I have a 1978 2wd C10
V8 5.0 305 with t350 trans
I want to check that flexplate bolts are tight.
I checked the torque converter ones with a 9/16 wrench.
But will need to modify a wrench to get up in there
To check the one that go into the crank.
Anyone know what size that he head is?
Thanks!!

Wasn't sure whether to post here or in electrical because it touches on both.  Finally found a set of new (used) shift rails.  They came out of a GM np205 that, as far as I can tell, the only difference was the donor np205 had an indicator switch for one of the detect bolts.  After I got the rails removed, I noticed the notching was a little different.  Same place, they just looked deeper on my original bent one.  At first I thought this was just because it was worn out, but after some research I discovered this was the design.  The shallower notch is to activate or shut off the indicator switch.  I'm assuming I can still use that rail in my np205, just need to use the switch detent instead of the bolt detent.  Let me know if my assumption is off. 

Now for the electrical...I have no idea whether my 1979 K20 had a working 4x4 indicator light.  I tore into this truck shortly after I bought it and never tried it.  I can say that - as noted above - the t-case did not have a switch, but the little plastic piece that goes into the cluster (fasten belts, brake, etc.) included one for "4wd lock."  Maybe it worked and the indicator switch is somewhere other than the t-case, maybe it never had a light and the cluster has been swapped, maybe it was installed on all clusters but only used on certain configurations.  Would a 1979 K20 have come with a 4wd indicator?  If so, where would the switch be if not on the t-case?  If it did not have one before, how would I go about hooking this one up?
